There are few cartoonists who manage to navigate with success between the sometimes opposite fields of mainstream and independent comics. Jean Giraud Moebius was one of those lucky few. Le Major is one of his works that falls clearly in the independent league: a self-published fac-simile limited edition of an A5 hardcover sketchbook he carried through the years, slowly filling it with his trademark freestyle improvisational comix and (surprise, surprise) a few collaborative panels with guests like Lorenzo Mattotti or Andre Juillard. This bijou is one of my most favorite comic objects ever and the perfect antidote to nausea inducing assembly-line comics. Although this limited original collector's edition is long sold-out, I hear there is an affordable standard spanish edition available for those interested in checking out the contents.
