Dark Horse Comics in partnership with Moebius Production in France is proud to reveal the first several volumes in the forthcoming Moebius Library, beginning with The World of Edena.
2016 represents not only Dark Horse Comics’ 30th anniversary, but also Moebius’s 60th anniversary of his very first published comic. Collecting all the Edena short stories in a deluxe, hardcover edition, The World of Edena includes “Upon a Star,” “Gardens of Edena,” “The Goddess,” “Stel,” and “Sra.” Although several had been translated into English in the 1980s, this will be the first time “Sra” has been available to English-language audiences.
Stel and Atan are interstellar repairmen trying to find a lost space station and its crew. What they discover about the universe and themselves on the mythical paradise planet Edena, though, changes their lives forever.
Following the debut of The World of Edena this fall, Dark Horse and Moebius Production are also announcing the next installments in the Moebius Library over the next few years, including The Art of Edena, Inside Moebius Part 1, Inside Moebius Part 2, Inside Moebius Part 3, and The Art of Moebius. Both The Art of Edena and Art of Moebius will include never-before-seen pieces from the artist’s private collection, most of which have not appeared in English-language publications. Additionally, these will be the first English-language editions of Moebius’s renowned, six-chapter autobiographical series Inside Moebius.
The World of Edena, a deluxe, 344 page hardcover premiers on October 26 and retails for $49.99. Preorder your copy today at your favorite online retailer or local comic book shop, Amazon, Barnes & Noble
Praise for Moebius
“Moebius’s Arzach had a great impact on me. But it’s definitely true that I created Nausicaä with Moebius’s influence.”—Hayao Miyazaki
“Moebius excelled as much in the fluidity of his storytelling as he did in the brilliance of his linework. There’s real beauty in his work. It’s quite a rare thing for an artist to be able to translate so much of the scale and grandeur and detail of their own imaginings into simple, elegant lines that can be so easily shared with others.”—Frank Quitely
“He is a master draftsman, a superb artist, and more: his vision is original and strong.”—George Lucas
“I read [Métal Hurlant] over and over and envied the French because they had everything I dreamed of in comics – beautifully drawn, visionary and literate comics, for adults. I wanted to make comics like that when I grew up.”—Neil Gaiman
