Virtual Meltdown: Images of Moebius (1992)
26.5 x 29.4cm, 179 pages
Virtual Meltdown: Images of Moebius is the tenth and final volume of a limited edition of 1500, signed & numbered hardback collection of beautiful, bound, books published by Graphitti Designs that collects and reprints the acclaimed trade paperbacks that were originally published by Marvel/Epic Comics and is sometimes referred to as Moebius 10.
The front and back covers of Virtual Meltdown feature panels from Moebius’ work Marie Dakar (1991), first published in French bandes dessinées magazine (A Suivre) but sadly for some reason not included in this book. Wrapped in a purple faux leather hardcover with embossed gold foil lettering, Virtual Meltdown is physically larger then the previous Graphitti Designs volumes Moebius 1-9 and is almost the same size as a 12” vinyl LP.
This volume collects the Moebius Marvel/Epic Comics’ books Chaos and Metallic Memories which is divided into the following chapter headings:
Wonders of the Universe,
Stories Inside Something.
Both the Marvel/Epic Comics paperbacks and the Graphitti Designs hardback books are sadly now long out of print, rare editions that are much sought after today. Amazingly, Graphitti Designs still has copies in stock of Moebius 4-9 (at the time of writing) and is available online through their website here.
