Was gutted to hear this, guy is one of my biggest influences and comic heroes - I had hoped I might have the chance to meet him one day but I guess not now.

Also it's worth noting that Giraud was has left a considerable impact on manga, the science-fiction genre in particular. His style and the European approach in general saw artists such as Katsuhiro Otomo, Tsutomu Nihei, Taiyo Matsumoto and Jiro Taniguchi taking on a much more cinematic feel and pace to their work, as well as exploring different styles on inking not-then common in manga.

He was also good buds with Hayao Miyazaki!
