Career Timeline: 1984 - City of Fire
In 1982, Moebius met an aspiring artist named Geof Darrow, who sought Moebius out while working on Tron in Los Angeles. They became friends and, two years later, collaborated on a portfolio of prints that they called La Cité Feu, or City of Fire. Consisting of 8 prints, Darrow penciled each piece while Moebius inked and colored them. City of Fire had a print run of only 500 copies, making it one of the rarest of Moebius’ publications.
I’m sure he is still tight with them, just Burlyman seems to have gone under.
I love the way Darrow draws Rusty’s hands. They totally contrast with the rest of his body.

I sadly wasn’t able to go to c2e2 this year, so if one of my awesome followers happens to be at c2e2, ask Geof Darrow if he’s coming to either Motor City Comic Con, or Detroit Fanfare.
Updating with rare and hard to find Darrow artwork, basically.
Most people familiar with Darrow have already seen his work on Hard Boiled, and Big Guy, and to an extent his Matrix concepts. I try to post more of his European artwork, like his Bourbon Thret strips and whatnot.
I once got this sketch from Geof Darrow of Arzach speaking Moebius. “After Jean”
