Sorry if this has been posted before ...

The text is apparently translated from a French-language video of the two chatting (link to that here):

I saw the exhibit about a week ago. It's a fun one and the videos are great (there was another one where Miyazaki went over the process of creating a film in great detail -- a lot of it is common knowledge to animation folks, but his comments about techniques, seeing how much of a ruthless, yet courteous, perfectionist he was with his team was astonishing). I bought the catalog, which reproduces more than half of all the work displayed in the show. The commentary is nice, but not super enlightening. AND it's both in French and English. It's available for sale online directly from the exhibit website (click on the button labeled "Acheter le catalogue ou l'affiche"). However, then it gives you a form and a request to send a check in Euros to someone called Kelly Bussell. That person's e-mail is there, and I'd hope you could work out something!

I'm briefly reviving this thread because I'm currently writing a review of the Miyazaki-Moebius exhibit for The International Journal of Comic Art, and I came upon this link that could please the Miyazaki/Moebius fans out there. It displays a handful of the cool originals that were in the exhibit. Enjoy!

For years now I've been hearing about how great Moebius is, and I've seen enough of his art to know that it's true, but I've never actually been able to find one of his books. It doesn't help that I don't know any of the titles of his work. Any suggestions for what I should be looking for?

Any early albums for the Lieutenant Blueberry series (signed as "Gir" or "Jean Giraud" -- his real name), The Incal, and Arzach (both signed as "Moebius"). I cannot attest for the English versions linked here because I've got the French ones, but that should be a start! Hopefully, someone else can chime in with suggestions.
