    Moebius (Jean Giraud) Moebius #5 "The Gardens of Aedena" Unused Page 42 Original Art (Marvel/Epic, 1988). This story was the first time that a Moebius story was published in the US before it was published in France. Ironic, since the genesis for this story was a commission from French automobile manufacturer Citro├źn who asked Moebius to create a four-page promotional story aimed at their sales force. From that grew the epic "Les Jardins d'Edena [The Gardens of Edena]". This unused page was numbered as Page 42 in the lower right. It seems to cover a slightly different sequence of events chronicled on Pages 42-44 in the published work and gives us a glimpse of what happened to Atana (in the published piece, Stel is knocked through a wall and we never see the monster get Atana). One of Moebius' more trippy stories... and that's saying a lot considering his prolific and surreal output. This lovely page is mostly-finished. Crafted in ink over graphite and blue pencil on bright white Bristol board with an image area of 10.25" x 14". The last panel is an unfinished/uninked pencil rough. In Excellent condition.
