Aussie artist Stuart McKenny (whose work was most recently seen in an issue of The All-New Batman: the Brave & the Bold) has produced a Game of Thrones print for Supanova. While I must confess to not even being remotely familiar with the books or TV adaptation, this portrait of Daenerys Targaryen is awe-inspiring.
It is my sad duty to impart the news that Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud has passed away. While most widely known to mainstream comics fans for his collaboration with Stan Lee, Silver Surfer: Parable (whose final page is depicted above), Moebius was also famed for his Blueberry graphic novels, co-founding Metal Hurlant (the inspiration for Heavy Metal, and to a lesser extent, Epic Magazine), and for helping design the look of Tron alongside Syd Mead.
Moebius’ influence was widely felt in both the American and European comics industries, and the artform will be poorer for having lost him.
