July Guest – Roberto Zaghi!

1) What was your first published work?
it was an album of LEGS WEAVER, a sci-fi/humor italian series edited by Sergio Bonelli Editore, a spin-off of NATHAN NEVER. The issue was written by Michele Medda, there was a giant robot and it was great fun to draw!

2) Who or what inspires you?
In comics, of course a big number of artists, but I love Alex Toth's work above all. Jorge Zaffino at 2nd place. Speaking of people currently at work, Jose Garcia-Lopez and Goran Parlov are likely at the top of the list.
Also master illustrators of the 50s and 60s do inspire me a lot. Then Hitchcock, Altman, Lynch, W. Allen, Francesco Rosi, Joel & Ethan Coen....

3) What would be your dream job to illustrate?
Hmmm.... I'm always in trouble with this question. A romance story set during WWII, but tomorrow I may say a completely different thing.

4) Tell us a bit about the illustration you've sent?
2 panels of Julia, the lady criminologist created by Giancarlo Berardi and published by Bonelli Editore, and 2 panels of Thomas SIlane, the journalist created by Patrice Buendia and Philippe Chanoinat for Bamboo Edition, beautifully colored by Cyril Saint-Blancat. It's all pen-brush/ink work... I'm still an analog artist.

5) What can we expect to see from you next (what are you working on)?
A new issue of JULIA for 2012. THOMAS SILANE #6 coming out in France/Belgium this fall.

6) If you hadn't become an artist what do you think you'd have ended up doing?
I left the the faculty of Chemistry to draw comics, but well... I remember that it was a very interesting field!

7) Where can we see more of your work (web links)?
On my blog: and my Facebook profile!

Thank you SC and congrats for your 2nd anniversary!
