    Moebius (Jean Giraud) Moebius #4 Complete 4-Page Story "Variation no. 4070 on 'the' Theme" Original Art (Marvel/Epic, 1978). Even after surviving a nuclear holocaust, a soldier finds himself being executed, in this grim, thought-provoking four-pager. The line work of the late Jean "Moebius" Giraud is simply remarkable, especially when seen up close, on the original art boards. Other than perhaps Robert Crumb, no one working today can really match the power of his pen and ink work. This story, which was originally printed in Europe in Métal Hurlant, was later translated and included in the Epic Moebius graphic novel series. The text is in French, but there is very little dialogue to worry about having to translate. The fear of nuclear annihilation is back in the news these days, making this futuristic Sci-Fi story ever so relevant. Let's hope that kind of situation sticks exclusively to the comic books! The art is in ink and graphite on bristol, with an average image area measuring 8.5" x 11.5". Page three has an art correction on another piece of bristol pasted in place; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
