Re: Hidetsugu Yoshioka Special Interview Vol. 1


From Twitter: Are there any stories or scenes from the Marvel comics that you’re fond of?

Yoshioka: Rather than any specific scenes, I liked how they’d lump guys like Bludgeon, Octopunch, and Stranglehold together, and make you wonder what they could possibly have in common. (Laughter)


From Facebook: “Would you ever consider working on Transformers comics for the Western market, such as titles published by IDW? I know we’d love to see your work published on our shores!”
…As you can see from this question, you do have a lot of global fans. When we announced this interview, we got a lot of people in foreign countries saying “I really want to ask Yoshioka-sensei a question!” or “I’m dying to get one of his illustrations!”

Yoshioka: Oh, I’d be honored. I don’t know how we’d communicate, though. (Laughter)

[quote]Was there something behind the story of Megatron’s friend falling to the humans?

Yoshioka: Nothing in particular. Just an ally who’d been killed.

So, pretty much a “hi then die” character, as we often saw in the comics.

Yoshioka: Yeah, that’s about it. Even if we had made one of the preexisting Decepticons die there, I doubt anyone would have felt too sad about it…

Really? I feel like that could have been very sad. Imagine if Ravage had died, or something.

Yoshioka: To me, that’s just the sort of characters the Decepticons are. They’re a band of thugs and scoundrels. (Laughter) In that sense, they’re the more human of the factions.

In comparison, Optimus Prime is almost too perfect. He’s kind of superior to humans.

Yoshioka: I didn’t really feel that way about him, personally. I view Optimus as a philanthropist. But people have different images of the character, and end up holding different opinions on him. When I’m drawing for fun, I never draw Optimus. It was the same way when I was doing the art for “Beast Wars” in TV Magazine. On my own, I’d only be drawing Dinobot. (Laughter)

Was there a reason you took a liking to Dinobot?

Yoshioka: He’s easy to draw. (Laughter) Easy to depict in poses and action scenes.[/quote]
