We recently spotted Juan Bobillo, while cruising for burgers on Bell Boulevard, and here’s what happened:
Q: What did you like most, about drawing the FF books?
A: I enjoyed drawing the kids. It was really fun.
Q: What is it like, working together with Marcelo Sosa?
A: Marcelo is the best inker of all, and a great friend. He can hit really tough deadlines. The best.
Q: When’s the last time a comicbook made you laugh out loud, and what was it that you saw?
A: I guess the last time was with some stuff of Quino. He is a great Argentinian artist.
Q: With so many characters to enjoy in the new FF stories, which character is your favorite, and why?
A: I like the intelligent and peaceful Dragon Man. He walks differently. He is always wise and shooting smart comments. I like him the best.
Q: What is your favorite film from the black and white film era, and why?
A: I love Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers a lot. Modern Times or The Kid. Beautiful scenes there.
Q: What is your favorite film from the color film era, and why?
A: I like Martin Scorcese and Clint Eastwood. The Unforgiven, I’d say. And when I was a kid, I loved Indiana Jones, and the Spielberg movies.
Q: You open a bottle. A genie pops out and grants you three wishes. What do you wish for?
A: Bread, Cheese, and Wine.
Q: It seems we won’t see Hank Pym or Janet Van Dyne in the Avengers movie. What are your thoughts on that?
A: They will have their chance.
Q: Looking back on the last ten years, which superhero movie did Hollywood get right, and which one did they get wrong?
A: Hellboy was really well done, and original. I didn’t see Green Lantern, nor Speed Racer. I guess they didn’t look so good for me.
Q: Avengers versus X-Men. It’s coming soon. Who will win?
A: Scarlett Johansson.
Q: If you found the ultimate nullifier, what would you do with it?
A: I would nullify something. The earth, maybe…or a chair.
Q: Settle a bet for us? Who is the cutest character in Marvel Comics?
A: The Thing.
Q: If you can send any FIVE comicbooks into space, as representation of the entire human race, which FIVE comicbooks are going up?
A: Snoopy. Tintin. Mafalda. Spider-Man. Evangelion.
Q: Are enough comicbooks being published for today’s youth?
A: NOOO…it’s never enough.
Q: Is Valeria Richards already smarter than her dad? Or does she still have a ways to go in that department?
A: She is. Women are always one step ahead.
Q: What’s one thing about Reed Richards’ lab that most people don’t know about?
A: There is a family of rats living there. And more families (of rats) are coming. Reed is a dirty fellow.
Q: Yippee! You’re going on a picnic! You can bring FIVE things along with you. What are they?
A: Silvana, my girflriend. Food. Drinks. Music. Money (just in case we get lost).
Q: What’s coming up soon, that Juan Bobillo fans can look forward to this year?
A: I’ll keep you posted. I’m doing lots of stuff. Right now I’m drawing Francisco in Historietas del Sotano. It’s an online character…going on posting every hour FOREVER. http://historietasdelsotano.blogspot.com/ DONT MISS IT!
