Famed artist, author and designer Jean Giraud, a.k.a. Moebius, will make an exclusive U.S. appearance ‘ his first in 15 years ‘ at the CTN Animation Expo, set for Nov. 19-21 in Burbank, Calif.
The French comic art master will appear for an event titled ‘An Evening with Moebius,’ to be followed by a networking reception on Nov. 20.
