A Halloween special here, consisting of zero Halloween related material! Instead what we do have is an excellent selection of obscure(ish) French SF Illustration…

These images come via bxzzines.blogspot.com a blogger site maintained by “Clifford Brown” (an anonymous pseudonym) The focus is mainly on vintage soft erotic magazines and related material; however Clifford also blends the occasional SF & Fantasy Scan into the mix, and that’s where this set has come from…

Here’s a link to the full post with 30 or so large scans: http://bit.ly/aPjHlO there is some mild nudity on the site, hence the warning. Merci beaucoup à Pierre for originally pointing me in the right direction!

Top: I think this is a Moebius Illustration (or is it Enki Bilal?) as I’m unsure of the source I can’t confirm – If you do know the origin please post a comment…

2nd Top: No real info on this piece

A selection of artwork from another prominent French Comic Artist and Heavy Metal contributor Enki Bilal, whose career spans right back to the start of the 1970’s. His style’s fairly similar to that of Moebius in that it’s very much charaterised by gorgeous and elaborate costume design, although It actually reminds me more of the work of Russ Nicholson (I will post more Russ soon!) anyway read a bit more about Enki here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enki_Bilal
