Mœbius takes Major Grubert on a final, psychedelic adventure!

Press Release

Dark Horse is printing Mœbius Library: The Major for the first time in English, featuring writing and art by legendary creator Jean “Mœbius” Giraud, translation by Diana Schutz, and lettering by Adam Pruett. Due out on February 6, 2024, you can preorder it now.

A psychedelic, sequential romp created by Mœbius between 1997 and 2009, the lead character of this pseudo-story, Major Grubert, evolves in a humorous yet philosophical manner, echoing how Mœbius’ creations are treated in the Inside Mœbius series.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

So what’s Mœbius Library: The Major about?

Join the Major on his last trip to the nebula of The Airtight Garage, where Mœbius rules as the playful Trickster of legend. What begins as a comical jaunt into unusually profound philosophical questions regarding the nature of existence, eventually winds up as a penetrating examination of the relationship between the author and his creation, the latter of whom must necessarily suffer at the heartless whim of his creator, despite the Major’s passionate desire for real life—and even freedom—beyond these comics!
