Dan O’Bannon has died. He’s well known as a movie writer. Among his credits are Alien, Blue Thunder, Dark Star, Heavy Metal, Invaders from Mars, Lifeforce and Total Recall. He also directed Return of the Living Dead and worked on special effects for Star Wars.

In the 70's, O’Bannon wrote an incredibly influential comic story called The Long Tomorrow. It was drawn by Moebius. The finished comic is acknowledged as being a major influence on Ridley Scott when he was working on Blade Runner, as you can see from these pages...
