Here, Read: “The Moebius Interview” by Diana K. Bletter

From Heavy Metal vol. IV, no. 5, here’s “The Moebius Interview” by Diana K. Bletter; in her opening comment to Moebius, Bletter claims this is the artist’s first interview for an American publication, but I have no idea whether or not that’s true:


“Trying to enter the land of one’s conscious makes one live science fiction. For example, a science fiction writer might imagine that he is caught in a hole and he’s trying to get out of it. Yet there might be others who know several means of getting out of the hole, and even more people who live outside the hole. I find that the moment one finds a clear vision of the highs and the lows, the past and the future and even the present, and one decides to live in that part that is the future, then one becomes a person of science fiction. Instead of it being something imaginary and political, it becomes something very personal.”
— Moebius, in conversation with Diana K. Bletter (1980)

“I try to be like a surfer riding on the crest of a wave, and I have to stay on the summit. I can’t worry about being comprehensible to everyone.”
— Moebius, in conversation with Diana K. Bletter (1980)
