This is a collection of short sci-fi stories by Moebius (some are written by others). The art is really fantastic. Some of the stories are really awesome, others are just alright (predictable, but fun).

Long Day Tomorrow was top notch, heavy influence on Blade Runner so that is really neat. Otherwise I found the quality of many of the other stories to be choppy. Probably more of a 3-3.5 stars but bumping up a bit just cuz it's Moebius and you always gotta love his art. I do enjoy that this collection includes Jean Giraud's (Moebius') commentary on each piece, which stories and art turned out best and why he thought so along with his critique of where he felt certain pieces fell short. It's alwa ...more

Сборник небольших фантастических новелл. Из титульной, The Long Tomorrow, торчат явные уши "Блейд раннера", "Нейромансера" и всего остального киберпанка (по сути классического детективного нуара, но в мегаполисе будущего). Мёбиус (во время работы над так и не случившейся экранизацией "Дюны") выступил здесь лишь художником, что, вполне возможно, пошло делу на пользу ;)

Сценаристом же был Дэн О'Бэннон, через три года он напишет сценарий "Чужого", а в 1990-м - "Вспомнить всё". Как отмечает Мёбиус в

The genius of Moebius is on full display in this collection. As readers we get to enjoy his distinct style of illustration and the way his approach towards storytelling and comics as a medium has changed throughout the years.

While this is no Arzach, The Long Tomorrow provides us with a story that has in a way influence modern culture far more, as Moebius himself states on the importance that The Long Tomorrow has had on science fiction movies such as Star Wars(they lifted a droid off of this st

The Long Tomorrow is one of those stories that became pillars for many emerging creators on the 70s. It clearly marked what would become in the 80s the Ciberpunk movement with it's mix of decaying future cities, hardboiled stories and antihero characters. The chemistry between the orignal story by Dan O'Bannon and the art of Moebius is excellent.
Also in this book is another of my favorite Moebius works: Is Man Good?. A comic without dialogs where Moebius displays his amazing narrative and cinema

Both The Long Tomorrow (written by Dan O'Bannon) and The Incal were influential in designing the movie Blade Runner by Ridley Scott and The Fifth Element by Luc Besson.

The Incal is a classic story that comes highly recommended to lovers of graphic novels and Sci-Fi buffs.

The Long Tomorrow was so good. Love to see the birth of Blade Runner's inspiration and earlier work Moebius did before the storyboards for 5th Element. According to this book some of the ideas came out of the failed Dune project with Alejandro Jodorowsky; I really wish they made that a reality.

the long tomorrow is the best of the bunch here, especially notable for its Star Wars and blade runner influence plus lots of weird sci fi nudity.

A handful of good-to-forgettable stories, the standout being The Long Tomorrow. Seeing Moebius do a gag comic in an Aragones style was fun.
