Darrow on Moebius

A Geof Darrow cover to WOLVERINE #300.

In 2011, Ben Towle and I organized a panel at Heroes Con titled “The Master of Screaming Metal: A Tribute to Moebius.” The panel consisted of three parts: a screening of Hasko Baumann’s fine documentary Moebius Redux (2007), an interview with Geof Darrow—a good friend and colleague of Jean Giraud’s—conducted by Ben, and a presentation by me on the similarities between the “Gir” and “Moebius” art styles. I was proud of my involvement with this panel.

Adam Daughhetee has unearthed an audio version of part of the panel—most of the Darrow interview—and put it up at the Dollar Bin website. Here’s a link to the audio. Give it a listen: Darrow’s got some intimate and hilarious stories to tell. (Alejandro Jodorowsky to Darrow: “Why do you want to fuck your father?”) And thanks to Adam.
