Arzach

arzach

Arzach is a comic book collection of four wordless short stories by artist/author Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud, which were originally published in the French sci-fi/fantasy comics magazine ‘Métal Hurlant,’ (published in the US as ‘Heavy Metal’).

The stories follow Arzach, a silent warrior who rides a pterodactyl-like creature through a strange, desolate landscape. The imagery and situations in Arzach are often compared to dreams or the subconscious. These stories had an enormous impact on the French comics industry, and the Arzach character is still among Moebius’ most famous creations.
