Yoko Tsuno and the Pentel P205
2022 saw the release of the 30th Yoko Tsuno album.
In case you are not familiar with this series I came across this series a few years ago for the first time.: In the Yoko Tsuno comics the main character, an electrical engineer, is taking part in adventures all over the world. Stories are usually technology and Sci-Fi heavy.
The first story appeared in 1970 and more than 50 years later they are still drawn by Roger Leloup, who is now 89 years old. He is still working on creating more adventures and, according to rumours, the 31st album is already half completed.
As can be seen in the this Kaboom video, Roger Leloup is using Pentel’s P205 to draw his comics. The clip has been removed, presumably to more more comfortable to hold and because the pencils are not being used in pockets anyway.
A few years ago I was quite lucky and managed to get a signed print from Roger Leloup that I want so share here with you.
I believe that the use of the images in this blog post fall under “fair dealing” as described by the UK Copyright service.
