Impossible not to be struck by the power of this composition which takes us into Space and the Marvel(ous) universe of super heroes. Moebius delights as always with his mastery of perspective, attitude and composition- like a brilliant photographer, he captures the essence of the moment.
This lithography was expertly printed by the famous Atelier Desjobert in Paris, the same atelier responsible for printing certain Picasso lithographs and the first of Marie Laurencin's colour lithographs. A family business, Jacques Desjobert took over the atelier after his father's death in 1953, and continued the fabulous printing tradition.
Artists such as Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Howard Cook and Paul Wunderlich whom all have lithographs hanging in The National Gallery of Arts, Washington, all used Desjobert's Parisian atelier and expertise.
