    "Grubert is a quasi-legendary being! He's the Creator of this world... he has allied himself with the twenty-three generating divinities who are the sacred pillars of the Tar'hai Mythology... with the help of thirteen expansion generators using The Grubert Effect (the patents of which he had just filed the previous day), he could transform any insignificant asteroid from somewhere within the belt, into a vast and complex world, with several levels if need be..." Jean Giraud, aka Moebius, aka "Grubert is a quasi-legendary being! He's the Creator of this world... he has allied himself with the twenty-three generating divinities who are the sacred pillars of the Tar'hai Mythology... with the help of thirteen expansion generators using The Grubert Effect (the patents of which he had just filed the previous day), he could transform any insignificant asteroid from somewhere within the belt, into a vast and complex world, with several levels if need be..." Jean Giraud, aka Moebius, aka Gir (for the Blueberry series), is also a quasi-legendary being: born in France in 1938, died just last year, co-founder of the magazine Metal Hurlant (known to english-speaking audiences as Heavy Metal), one of the most influential of comic artists, drug lover, New Age philosopher, deadpan humorist, devious postmodernist, genius. it is probably pretty pointless to give a synopsis to this collection of tales but i'll give it a try. so Major Grubert crosses time and space and travels throughout various dimensions. he and his lover Malvina have unimaginable powers although we get to witness very few of them. he has a rival who appears to be Michael Moorcock's character Jerry Cornelius. he has created a world - his own "Garage Hermetic". that world wants to grow on its own and no longer be Grubert's private fantasyland. revolution! but a very odd, minor note one. various personages (Engineer Barnier! The Archer! Samuel Mohad and his giant robot 'The Star Billiard'!) assemble and travel throughout this world's three levels, and to other places as well (poor Lark! stuck in the Old West!). they have various agendas and have various adventures. Major Grubert and Malvina also get involved, with varying degrees of effectiveness. and then... Not the End! adventures in the Garage Hermetic rarely end. characters die but hey they may be robotic avatars so no big deal. the whole world is a moebius strip so the last page is never the last page. here's poor, smitten Lark after finding that a kiss from Malvina will send you... elsewhere: this is one of my 5-star books that i find hard to recommend to most people. the narrative manages to be quaintly charming, nearly impenetrable, and to feel rather similar to that of a classic children's fantasy novel like one of the Oz books. it can be interpreted as a parody of colonial attitudes. it can be viewed as a wink in the direction of Moorcock's Multiverse. you can enjoy it as a series of rather adult Boy's Adventures. any specific "meaning" to be found is probably ephemeral at best and that meaning will most likely change by the next page. transformation, irony, pastiche, stylishness, psychedelia, non-linear, and whimsy are all words that can be seen as hallmarks of the various Airtight Garage tales. there are countless references, most of which i can barely understand. the art is by turns delicate, eerie, hallucinatory, and just plain lovely. very Yellow Submarine. very Fifth Element. very Art Deco. very original. very Moebius! his very name evokes the image of a particular kind of style, a particular sort of sensibility. in one of the interesting pieces included in this collection, Moebius explains his modus operandi: "Every month, I would try very hard to recreate a coherent story from the existing elements. Then, I would break them apart again in order to create again a feeling of insecurity, so that, the next month, I would again have to pick up the pieces and do it again, and so on until the end of the story." when i think of Moebius, i think of something that is both surreal and playful. the fizzy champagne version of postmodernism. Moebius juggles styles and ideas and homage and makes it all look so easy and fun. don't expect to find resolution or to even have an Aha, now I finally get it! type moment. but do expect to find things that you won't expect.

    A hard to find and utterly weird, dreamlike comic. The more I think about it the less it approaches sense(not really its intent), but still the images are wonderful. Reminds me of the animated film The Fantastic Planet.

    A really whacked out trippy sci-fi narrative meandering thru multiple dimensions/created worlds. So for me the story and narrative were so-so, but the art is just phenomenal. Def worth reading just to experience the art of Moebius. Kind of reminds me of Winsor McCay's Little Nemo, both the dreamlike quality and the art style. Speaking of which, I'd be curious if Moebius ever cited McCay's work as an influence, will have to look into that.

    Já li esta estória várias vezes. É, no entanto, a primeira vez que o faço a preto e branco (na edição original). Prefiro a cores: com a cor, os desenhos de Moebius ficam ainda mais fantásticos. Mesmo passados tantos anos - mais de duas décadas - este continua a ser o autor de banda desenhada que mais aprecio. Talvez pela orgia delirante de ficção científica + fantasia onírica + espiritualidade futurista tão características de Moebius e que TANTO me agradam! :)

    Не знаю як оцінити цей текст.

Тобі починає здаватись, що ти розумієш цей дивний світ і навіть його причинно-наслідкові зв'язки (насправді ні), відчуваєш причетним себе до якоїсь таємниці. Водночас вловлюєш цю гру, починаєш сам слідувати за героями бозна-куди й бозна-чому (подібне може траплятись, коли читаєш "Улісс" Джеймса Джойса). Загадки, які не розгадаєш. Фінал, який так і не відбудеться. Справді, увесь текст пронизаний іронією, що й робить його, напевно, дещо милим і цікавим. Тобто у якийсь момент я справді вимкнув логіку й сказав: ну гаразд, побачимо що ж буде далі. Жан Жиро/Мьобіус публікував цей комікс (гаразд, графічний роман, але де ж тут сюжет, задум, історія формування характерів?) у французькому журналі Métal Hurlant, який потім почав виходити в США вже з назвою Metal, часто видаючи усілякий психодел та сайфай. Тому не дивно, що глави це фактично короткі стріпи, що публікувались у журналі. Рівно через три роки Жан Жиро видасть усі ці нариси в окремому збірнику, проте навіть в сукупному вигляді це читається важко або як мінімум загадково. До того ж, оригінальна версія була чорно-білою, тому це ще додавало антуражу (частково читав і цю версію, тому варто додати, що відчуття зовсім інші, аніж від пофарбованої версії). Дивний, незрозумілий і сюрреалістичний світ Мьобіуса зачарував своєю красою, а вже потім умовною історією. Окремі панелі просто неймовірно деталізовані, а ландшафти та істоти є прикладом невгамовної фантазії відомого француза. Умовність реальності підсилювалась модними на той час течіями, як-от кіберпанк, який теж пронизаний плюралізмом, психоделікою та технологіями. Сьогодні це справді культовий комікс, але мені однаково не хочеться й не можеться його оцінити. Нехай собі блукає у космосі цей астероїд, цей герметичний гараж, притягуючи та збиваючи з пантелику читачів, як збив щойно мене.

    Boris Groys señala que en la actualidad la estrategia de autodenuncia es una de las exitosas para producir un efecto de sinceridad en el campo del arte. No fue el caso de Moebius, quien en las entrevistas no tenía problemas en comportarse como un maestro, es decir, como alguien consciente de su avance por un camino árduo. Corría riesgos con eso. De ridículo y de cosas peores. No sucumbió a ninguno de ellos, porque su obra se expresa con sinceridad por sí misma, y confirma que no había pretensión Boris Groys señala que en la actualidad la estrategia de autodenuncia es una de las exitosas para producir un efecto de sinceridad en el campo del arte.

De ridículo y de cosas peores. No sucumbió a ninguno de ellos, porque su obra se expresa con sinceridad por sí misma, y confirma que no había pretensión alguna. Hace falta algo más que paciencia y dedicación para lograr que cada cara en una multitud tenga no solo identidad, sino una dignidad propia. Desde la mirada de Moebius cada detalle tiene una existencia plena. En el Garaje Hermético el comic deja de ser un soporte narrativo para convertirse en la invitación a un ejercicio de contemplación.

    I order things I can't find through the local interlibrary loan system, and quite often I don't have much expectations towards actually acquiring a copy of an object of desire. Especially one as elusive as The Airtight Garage. Well, I was surprised. The only reason I wanted to read this is the Jerry Cornelius fiasco.

Especially one as elusive as The Airtight Garage. Well, I was surprised. The only reason I wanted to read this is the Jerry Cornelius fiasco. Moorcock coined the character with the intent of allowing other authors to toy with him as they wished, and this was collected in The Nature of the Catastrophe. Well, apparently Moebius went ahead and made his own version of Jerry Cornelius. This caused a tiff between the two creators. Moorcock wasn't happy Moebius did this and Moebius wasn't happy that Moorcock wasn't happy. All in all, this resulted in Moebius's Cornelius being renamed Lewis Carnelian. Now the two creators are claiming that their disagreement was overblown in context, and that there wasn't really any animosity in the first place. I call bullshit on that—they're probably doing this because with the advent of technology and ease of shared content, their fanbases have grown larger and mingled. Now at risk of offending respective parties, they've pretended to make peace. Soem might say Moebius' Carnelian isn't a Cornelius knockoff in anything but name; this is definitely not true. Moebius' weird world borrows elements from Moorcock's Eternal Champion Multiverse, including, especially, the Second Ether. If you were ignorant of the controversy behind, and hadn't read Moorcock, you'd still enjoy this book, because Moebius is a genius in his field. His pages are gorgeous and despite the episodic nature of the narrative, you enjoy indulging in the title blocks and abosrbing the weirdness of the storytelling.

    I read the 4 issue reprint edition by DC. Each issue had a page prose recap of the plot... I have no idea what just happened in this comic. The story is serialized, so every few pages the page reprints the title. This causes the story to lose its smoothness of narration. Which isn't a particular problem here because the story seems nonsensical. (I think the author was making this up as he went along). The art is typical beautiful Moebius.

Unfortunately that is the only redeeming feature of this comic. I wish Moebius worked with writers more often because I find his solo work to lack a certain narrative cohesiveness.

    Not everything is as it seems. I wasn't too impressed with the art work or the trying too hard dialog. Then I read more. And read even further. My dreams were changed and interrupted with the stories of Jerry Cornelius (or Lewis Carnelian). Intense. Hopefully we will see an open-ended video game based on this world. Read it if you can find a copy.

    3.5 stars. Psychedelic sci-fi adventure story dealing with multiple levels of reality. The storyline unfurls in short chapters that are designed to be alternately improvised and heavily-plotted. The overall vibe falls somewhere between, say, the films "The Holy Mountain" and "Fantastic Planet" without being as coherent or successful as either, though Moebius's imagery is often breathtaking.

    Completamente aleatório e insano, A Garagem Hermética de Moebius é um álbum de ficção científica pura e dura, cheia de termos técnicos e futurismos alucinantes, com traços de guerra, de faroeste, de super-heróis e de misticismos. O autor foi escrevendo a história de forma fortuita, sem um enredo com pés e cabeça ou uma linha a seguir. O resultado foi uma história que achei confusa e de difícil interpretação, mas cheia de um significado secreto que me satisfez.

O autor foi escrevendo a história de forma fortuita, sem um enredo com pés e cabeça ou uma linha a seguir. O resultado foi uma história que achei confusa e de difícil interpretação, mas cheia de um significado secreto que me satisfez. Logo de caras, sorri ao perceber que os nomes dos personagens inaugurais da trama eram os das colunas que sustentavam as portas do Templo de Salomão. Grubert é a chave do livro. Ele é o criador dos mundos e governa-os com menos controlo do que um empresário gere uma organização. As ideias sucedem-se e são sempre surpreendentes e cheias de potencial, acabando por não ser exploradas. Moebius fez as regras do jogo e brincou a seu bel-prazer, deixando para trás as tramas que menos lhe interessavam e criando novos focos e diretivas. A narrativa é erudita e cheia de significados, ainda que a falta deles também imponha um mistério vazio que não me desiludiu. Se Moebius parece um autor louco e deixa os leitores completamente “What the fuck!” com as histórias apresentadas, é acima de tudo um artista brilhante, que soube casar o desenho à história de forma igualmente desconcertante e fluída. A própria imagem de Grubert sofre várias mudanças ao longo da obra. Por fim, um destaque para a escrita bem-humorada do autor. Moebius apresenta uma história sem pés nem cabeça, mas cheia de sumo e de coerências. Aqui e ali, as tramas cruzam-se e o insondável ganha sentido. Foi acima de tudo o humor e a irreverência do autor que me cativaram, mais do que uma história que nem tão bem compreendi e que mesmo assim recomendo. http://noticiasdezallar.wordpress.com

    L'intera storia è una presa in giro: il lettore tenta disperatamente di riconoscere un intreccio, un senso, un rapporto tra le varie parti, ma non ci riesce. Ogni qual volta sembra emergere un minimo barlume di trama, nella scena successiva le informazioni acquisite perdono di senso.

Ogni qual volta sembra emergere un minimo barlume di trama, nella scena successiva le informazioni acquisite perdono di senso. La lettura è molto complessa, dove viene frustrata la mente umana che cerca sempre di ricostruire rapporti di causa ed effetto all'interno di una storia. Il mondo di cui si parla è un mondo fantascientifico di cui il lettore non sa praticamente nulla: ci sono numerosi rimandi a persone, cose, sistemi fisici che appartengono a un universo che è troppo diverso dal nostro. Questo crea un forte effetto di straniamento: essere immersi nel futuro significa non capirlo, mentre la fantascienza ci ha abituato a nuovi mondi sempre molto riconoscibili per un uomo del 'passato'. Ma credo che l'effetto di spaesamento messo in piedi da Moebius sia molto più realistico. Come molte delle storie di Moebius, qui si gira molto: i personaggi vagano, rincorrendo non si sa cosa e sfuggendo da non si sa cosa. L'atto del movimento, puro e semplice, permette a un disegnatore di rappresentare interi mondi: questo è l'obiettivo di Moebius, cioè mettere in piedi un universo grafico di straordinaria potenza e fantasia. L'estetica, il tratto, l'immaginazione di Moebius sono l'unica cosa che riesce a creare un mondo, poiché le parole e i dialoghi non sono più capaci di produrre senso. In Moebius, come in pochissimi altri autori, è il disegno a fare la storia e non la sceneggiatura. Una piccola parvenza di storia, però, c'è: ci troviamo su di un mondo diviso in tre livelli, mondo creato dal Maggiore Grubert (un po' il protagonista della storia). All'improvviso, alcune forze e personaggi cercano di spodestare il creatore, affinché questo mondo possa essere indipendente (o, più semplicemente, per rubare il potere al creatore). Uno di questi personaggi è Jerry Cornelius, il quale dà il via a una serie di azioni atti a voler spodestare il Maggiore. In questa lotta subentrano molti altri scagnozzi. A questi due personaggi, infine, si aggiunge una terza fazione: quella dei Bakalit, i quali cercano di sfruttare un errore commesso da un ingegnere, ad apertura del fumetto. Questo errore (non si sa bene quali siano stati gli effetti fisici, ma solo che è stato causato dalla rottura di uno speciale macchinario) ha permesso ai Bakalit di combattere contro queste due forze per rendere tale mondo indipendente dal suo creatore. L'ingegnere all'inizio della storia è uno dei tanti personaggi che fugge, anche se non si sa bene da cosa. Termina? Sì, ma solo perché ogni opera umana ha una fine. Le tavole finiscono e, per forza di cose, anche la storia. Un fumetto per chi vuole fare un'esperienza di senso assurda e bearsi di un immaginario estetico davvero grandioso, in cui elementi a noi noti si fondono con altri totalmente assurdi, contribuendo a creare quest'atmosfera dove si alterna riconoscibile e strano.

    Este é, de longe, o livro mais inacessível da coleção Novela Gráfica. Moebius cria mundos fantásticos, baseados em ficção científica, onde o major Grubert é visto como uma personagem lendária e, de certo modo, omnipotente, já que foi ele que criou estes mundos imaginários. A premissa é uma boa desculpa para um Moebius completamente livre poder dar largas ao experimentalismo e operar uma verdadeira revolução na BD.

Desenvolvendo a história sem grande planeamento (nota-se pouca coerência no todo), Moebius presenteou o leitor com todo o tipo de ideias que lhe assolaram o espírito durante o período a que se dedicou a esta obra. Algumas permitem desvendar os interesses metafísicos do autor, a partir dos diálogos das personagens, outras permitem perceber que houve muito álcool e/ou drogas à mistura (o que não considero mau por si mesmo). Afinal o que conta é a obra realizada e o valor artístico das ideias e do traço de Moebius. Não é necessariamente uma coisa má, mas esta obra obriga a 2 ou 3 leituras sem interrupções para uma boa compreensão.

    For me this is the best comic novel ever, although not everybody's cup of tea due to its chaotic story structure and high level of complexity. I've read it over 20 times and with each read I still discover things I hadn't thought of before.

As always with Moebius, you have to accept that you'll probably be more puzzled when reaching the end of the book than you were when starting it, given his love for stopping a comic seemingly in the middle of the storyline, but the effort of going through is very rewarding and you keep falling form one wonder into another. A classic in every way!

    There's nothing quite like Moebius, in terms of artwork and writing style. The artwork is utterly dreamlike. Dense, heavy with moving parts, gentle, abstract--he's got it all. The narrative structure is at times chaotic and difficult to follow, but it ultimately rewards with quirky characters and plot points. These are not easy to find, so if you're able to get a hold of one, do it.

    So much fun, but it requires you to let go of your expectations of how a story comes together. Moebius is clearly writing this story as he goes along, and possibly not going back to read previous pages but merely recalling pieces of them. It is largely coherent, despite a few sequences with questionable motives/intent. The story wraps with a touch too much convenience, which would have been a let down were it not for the final two pages.

    Графика (я читала черно-белый вариант) просто невероятна. С сюжетом все не так гладко, но может я привыкла к современным графически романам, "Гараж" же выпускался постранично, отсюда вполне возможно искаженное восприятие; однако ни одному герою не сочувствуешь, честно говоря, а сложное строение мира/ов это не компенсирует. Но графика бесподобна, тут нечего сказать. По отдельности рисунки даже лучше смотрятся.

(anotaciones y prescripciones sobre una compulsión ontológica.) El Arte despliega, no sin vanidad, todo un abanico taxonómico de trances: impertérrito verdugo, solicita victima, a esta extravagante variedad no impone otra jerarquía que no sea la del azar. ¿A que nos referimos, al hablar de trances? Al pacto tácito que da inicio a toda experiencia estética. Hay cierto apoderamiento, cierto acuerdo que persiste mas allá del acto que crea la posibilidad de la obra: cierto magnetismo que nos eyecta de la cotidianidad, y recrudece la realidad demostrando cuan frágiles pueden ser sus construcciones: cuan reemplazables: cuan insuficientes. Con su garaje Hermético, Moebius impacta con rudeza contra todo limite y nos compromete a una búsqueda que trasciende la pagina. Todas sus viñetas están construidas bajo una perspectiva tensa, que responde a cierto anamorfismo: por que cada escena posee la cualidad de estar abierta, no solo semánticamente, sino incluso gráficamente: abierta al espacio y al tiempo, a las incursiones de la mirada que la hace nacer una y otra vez, a los vericuetos del propio pensamiento. Uno no se acerca a una historia de Moebius para entrenar y robustecer la plena facultad de su razón disciplinada: sino para ser arrebatado de ella, para ponerla no entre paréntesis, sino entre signos interrogativos. Moebius, con cada dibujo, cada escenario nos dice: la dominación de una facultad no es un aspecto necesario, apodíctico: es, simplemente, un factor arbitrario. De ahí, nos permite fortalecer otros medios perceptivos, nos impulsa la intuición. El mundo de Moebius es intuitivo. Es lúdico. Sus construcciones pertenecen a lo mas genuino de nuestra realidad: con lenguajes inventados, situaciones inverosímiles, nos devuelve el derecho de la incertidumbre, nos recrea la única necesidad con la que nos podemos comprometer en una vida finita, que termina a la vuelta de pagina: la búsqueda, en su forja mas pura, mas irreversible, mas austera, mas insobornable, desesperanzada, idílica, monstruosa y angélica. Por eso, quien se acerque a los mundos que esta pluma, que este dibujo crea, sepa que el peligro de todo trance esta en el contraste: una vez en él, descubrimos que tan cercana, como experiencia, esta nuestra vida, con sus suposiciones, con sus seguridades. Observamos que no podemos librarnos de la construcción ficcional permanente, como los personajes de Moebius no pueden librarse de las lineas demarcatorias que cierran las viñetas. Pero esto no impide el placer. El desafío. El juego al cual nos invita Moebius con sus aventuras del mayor, el explorador intergalactico del garaje hermético. No podemos privarnos de entrar de ese mundo, de volvernos parte.

И так далее на протяжении всего "Гаража". И самое смешное, что, судя по его же собственному комментарию, примерно так всё и было на самом деле. Невероятное буйство фантазии, сюрреализма, юмора и самоиронии (и типографики!) - только вместо сюжетной логики здесь старательно выведена анти-логика, бессмысленная и беспощадная. Но в то же время с определённой структурой, идеально соответствующей выбранному инопланетно-абсурдному сеттингу. Впрочем, стоит отдать автору должное, сюжет плавно набирает обороты и впоследствии превращается в неудержимую динамо-машину. Fun fact of the day: там же в комментариях отмечается, что у слова "Герметический" во всех языках, сохранивших написание слова, есть второе, глубоко устаревшее значение, цитирую по словарю Ушакова: 2. Тайный, скрытый (о книгах и доктринах мистического характера, связанных с культом Гермеса Трисмегиста). (От имени божества Гермеса, которому приписывалось искусство заделывать сосуды металлическими печатями.) P.S. Writer Sean Witzke has called it "the perfect comic" and "the only comic I have ever read that feels alive. It digresses against itself, doubles back, thinks, laughs, pauses, lurches, and eventually gracefully dances. This comic breathes." [wiki]

En esta sensación de caos colaboró el hecho de que los primeros Métal Hurlant en los que apareció publicado El garaje… fueran trimestrales, suponiéndose un final inconcebible en el tiempo (sólo cuando fue por fin fue mensual el ritmo de elaboración de la historia se hizo más dinámico)."

Rightfully mentioning Jerry Cornelius - only Moorcock's multiverse and his characters are comparable and belong next to Moebius' unbound imagination. Garments, names, locations, colors, frames, characters and actions that spring (almost) without control. Comic that should be reread every now and then.

    I respect Moebius quite a lot, and I feel SUPER guilty for not loving all of his stuff—like I'm wrong or broken—but Airtight Garage is one of the absolute least enjoyable things I've read in recent memory. Props to Moebius for having explored new narrative forms (i.e. the absence of a narrative), but holy shit if you're not going to tell a story, why waste the reader's time with so much gibberish nonsense dialogue and narration? Hate it, hate it.
