UNDER THE SURFACE OF THINGS TO COME

At last, in this volume, we are able to present some of Moebius's better-known "underground" stories, They display the influence of the American Underground, especially Robert Crumb, whose work had just reached France in the early 1970s, The stories were all published in various French magazines, just before the creation of the famous Metal Hurlant magazine

in 1975. -

The most famous of these stories is undoubtedly The Horny Goof. As with The Airtight Garage, we have chosen to retain the title byWhich this story is best known in America, although a better translation of its original French title (Le Bandard Fou)would be the 'Wild Horny Pecker."

Whatever its title, The Horny Goof is interesting on several levels: its combination of bawdy humor and fairly sophisticated science-fiction is a rare one, a style best done by Philip Jose Farmer. Those who love comics in-jokes will delight in finding, on pages 11 and 12, an homage to the pirate Red-Beard, a character created by Jean-Michel Charlier and Victor Hubinon, but also known for his hilarious, disastrous encounters with the indomitable Asterix and Obelix.

Last but not least is the fact that the story is a prequel of sorts to The Airtight Garage. Flower, the artificia Ily-expanded pleasu re asteroid wh ich we discover at the end, eventua Ily becomes the first level of Major Grubert's private creation. For this, and more about lady Kowalsky, read The Airtight Garage, pages 92 seq., and Airtight Garage spin-off comic-book series, such as The Elsewhere Prince, The Onyx Overlord, etc. '

Sixteen years ago, few guessed that the relative "bang' caused in France by the original publication of The Horny Goof was also the "big bang" of the creation of the Moebius Universe.

Which is still expanding today

I t is important to place The Horny Goof in its context It was first published in 1974 by the same folks who were putting out the magazine l'Echo des Savanes.lt therefore comes just before Arzach,. The Airtight Garage, and even the creation of Metal Hurtant.

People usually consider my story The Detour, which appeared in Pilote in 1973, the first Moebius-style story, but it was signed "Gir" and was more like a statement of intention, a manifesto, if you wish. The Horny Goof, done the fol.lowing year, is the tangible product of that manifesto, the first real, fulllength, adult Moebius story

All this has to be seen in the context of the spirit of May 1968 In France, the events of May '68 started a cultural explosion, which found its way into the comics. The new state of mind was openness, awareness, the desire to explore new roads, to tell new stories, to create new patterns, to look for other types of societies The first comic artists to take the leap were Gotlib, Mandryka, and Claire Bretecher who decided to leave Pilote at the peak of its success and, in 1973, started their own self-published magazine, l'Echo des Savanes Philippe Druillet and I were champing at the bit and, a year later, with Jean-Pierre Dionnet, we started our own magaz.ine too, Metal Hurlant

The Horny Goof was drawn during that incubating period, Just before the creation of Meh remember that my inspiration came after an evening spent in the company of other comic artists, most especielly Gotlib I drew that story at nignt-;--rrrsrnall increments, while I was doing Blueberry and other jobs during the day The story came in a state of complete spontaneity-some would say irresponsibility! To that extent, it anticipates Arzech and especially The Airtight Garage, to which it is an unplanned prequel, in particular in its mixture of SF, hurnot and the purposefully-kept-mysterious threads of the story.

The Horny Goof is my first -_ adult" story. To me, • adult" means to be free in spirit, to know no bounds, to accept no morel restrictions, especially those imposed by somebody else. Only the artist himself can impose his own restrictions, and therefore assume full responsibility for his art That is what it means to be an "adult."

I bel ieve that to become an .. adu I t" is ulti mately the only way for a com ic artist not to become bored to death. If you have to draw the same characters day after day; with the same faces, the same costumes, if you can't express anything personal, if you have to illustrate the same stories, often given to you by people you don't know or don't respect, you can very well go mad, or start d rinkingi n order to compensate, or maybe even kill yourself. It's a nightmare. The only way to stay alive is to stay fresh and have fun doing what you're doing.

The Horny Goof was one of the first stories I did in that spirit of freedom. It was something incredible. It expresses an emotion, like "I don't know what I've done, but I must continue I don't know where I'm going, but I must go on." I think the reader feels that. I was not seeking to deliberately put these theories into practice. I was only do.ing it because I experienced great pleasure doing so But it just happened that it fit. When you open a door, you don't know what you're going to find behind it.

STORY NOTES by MOEBIUS

Adult comics started In the United States with the American Underground. They were the first in the world to use comics as a means of communication, to express real emotions. Before, comics were used only to do stories, entertainment. They had some great moments, but they were all very conventional. The American Underground showed us in Europe how to express truefeelings, how to tell something to the reader through the carnics. They blew the mind of

I '::':==~~===========::::J the few professionals in Europe who saw them. It

.... showed us the way, helped us create our own

stories, express our own emotions. The answer from the publ ic was phenomenal, first ,i n France, then throughout Europe

Regarding the use of sex and violence in "adult" comics, I would first remark that sex and violence should not oei ntrinsically taboo for adult readers. There are ways for even sex and violence to be portrayed in rich and, I would say, moral ways. I mean, in ways that are not shocking but that can help in spiritual growth and development. I agree that, more often than not, sex and violence are portrayed in negative ways-especially sex, because as a society, we tend to have more problems with it-but .it doesn't have to be that way. I, for one, have strived to express both in the former

Sometimes, I see books which are not good because they exploit the violence and sex in ways that I think are disgusting Usually, I don't buy these books or read them. But if I do, I see the sickness in the mind of the artist who drew them and .1 feel compassion for him. I may even understand what problems he has that made him choose to express himself that way Because I firmly believe that if somebody has a problem with sex and violence in a comic book, the problem is not in the comic book but in the person who is rending it

If someone didn't already have problems with his own sexuality or violent nature, he couldn't be harmed by the existence of that book. On the other hand,if he does have a problem, then he will see that prabl em reflected in the book, which is, of course, what he cannot stand. He'll become furious, and even call the law When you have a problem you don't want to face, the fear is very powerful and can make you want to fight and behave in crazy ways.

Deima was drawn in 1975 as an attempt to do a really "chic" metaphysical fantasy story a la Philip Jose Farmer, one of my favorite SF authors (especially his Riverworld series). That's why these three pages look unself-conscious and charming

One late evening, in 1974, I came. home in a great emotional state, though now I remember my condi tion but I forget what it was all about. That's when I drew You're The Object Of This And That. I,t looks very clumsy to me now, but I feel a solidarity with all my past, inc I ud ing my moments of clumsiness-and audacity
