    Another AGT death. People who die when Howard is out of town for AGT.



    French comic-book artist and designer Jean Giraud, known as Moebius, died Saturday aged 74 after a long illness, an associate and work colleague said.
    Jean Henri Gaston Giraud was one of France's leading cartoonists who also found fame in Japan and the United States.
    Born at Nogent-sur-Marne east of Paris on May 8, 1938, he began after art school training as an illustrator for advertisers and the fashion industry before turning to comic strips.
    He found fame when he created the Lieutenant Blueberry western character and adopted the pseudonym Moebius for illustrations of science fiction books and magazines.
    As well as being published in top French magazines, he worked with Japanese manga artists and co-produced an adventure of US comic-book superhero The Silver Surfer with Stan Lee.
    Giraud also contributed to a number of blockbuster movies, and in 2010 France's Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art staged a major retrospective of his work.

    Hunter: Rivetti, what's up?
    Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I'm sorry, Sir. It's just a difference of opinion that got out of hand.
    Hunter: What about?
    Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: It's really too silly to talk about, Sir. I'd really just forget about...
    Hunter: I don't give a damn about what you'd rather forget about. Why were you two fighting?
    Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I said, the Kirby Silver Surfer was the only real Silver Surfer. And that the Moebius Silver Surfer was shit. And Bennefield's a big Moebius fan. And it got of hand. I pushed him. He pushed me. I lost my head, Sir. I'm Sorry.
    Hunter: Rivetti, you're a supervisor. You can get a commission like that.
    [Snaps finger]
    Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: I know, Sir. You're 100 percent right. It will never happen again.
    Hunter: It better not happen again. If I see this kind of nonsense again, I'm going to write you up. You understand?
    Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: [No answer]
    Hunter: Do you understand?
    Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: Yes, Sir.
    Hunter: You have to set an example even in the face of stupidity. Everybody who reads comic books knows that the Kirby Silver Surfer is the only true Silver Surfer. Now am I right or wrong?
    Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: You're right, Sir.
    Hunter: Now get out of here.
    Petty Officer First Class Danny Rivetti: Yes, Sir.
