2018, Well Well

While I cannot say that 2018 snuck up on me, I can say that 2017 went by very quickly. It was a whirlwind from beginning to end.

Strangely, none of my plans have changed. I’ve still got covers I’m working on, I’m still writing a lot, and I still have a couple of other project […]

Darn It All…

In a remarkable fit of misfortune, my recently rebuilt dedicated graphics computer has crashed again. Apparently, it has lost its “BOOTMGR.”

So, until I can figure out what to do, no more illustration work.

I don’t know how serious the problem is, but the computer worked great for about a month but now, then […]

Superhero Prose Anthologies

I’ve had the opportunity to have stories in several prose superhero anthologies, and for that I am quite greatful. In that spirit, here is a list of superhero themes that I believe would make great anthologies on their own.

1) Replaced: The hero has been replaced by a successor, or an imposter, or a version […]

All Over The Place Here

Interesting article about American airships. Educational more than eye-opening.

Black Lightning: This new WB show had an excellent opening episode. The politics of race and Black Lives Matter was a strong element throughout the show, and while some may find that heavy handed, I think these issues should stay in the national dialogue until something […]

Feeling Better

I was just thinking, and I believe it’s safe to say that I am over the critical burnout that just about ended my creative career and did end my comic, Johnny Saturn. Right now I have a full slate of writing, covers, and commissions that I am working on and I feel fantastic about it. […]

Johnny Saturn Behind the Scenes

You’ve read some or all the “Johnny Saturn” stories, in comics or prose, right? Of course you have. If you haven’t just play along.

There were a lot of underlying precepts that went into making these stories, and that’s what this blog post is about.

SEXUAL PREFERENCE, RELIGION, ETHNICITY, ETC.

When I got going on […]

Lessons Learned as an Artist

I love art, and my enthusiasm shows. I’m always happy to share my knowledge and help other artists grow. I don’t believe in hoarding knowledge and looking back in fear of those who might (and often do) overtake me . . . I believe in generosity.

Here are my primary beliefs when it comes to […]

Lesson Remembered

I’m pretty good at being miserable.

Conversely, I’m terrible at being happy.

The thing is, it doesn’t have to be that way.

For the last few decades or so, I’ve been pretty good at turning my glass-half-empty world into a glass-half-full one. I’ve learned to take a different stance on my problems, a position where […]

Hanging Out With The Cat

Hey, Folks:

After lovely July 3 spent with my even more lovely wife, Benita, I’m now settled into my easy chair for the evening with my cat, Dylan. Pollen is floating through the air freely here in Central Indiana, so said feline is breathing and weezing loudly. For those who do not remember, this cat […]

Greetings, Salutations, Hola, Hello, Hi

Hey You, It’s Me–Yo!

Greetings from the great Midwest, the home of overly entitled and yet strangely polite people.

In the past, I would have written reviews of movies I’d recently seen, such as Wonder Woman (extremely good) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2(also extremely good). I’d have shared my thoughts about the writing, […]

Around the Globe in 80 Videos. . .

Greetings, Friends, Colleagues, and Random Witnesses:

My name is Scott Angus Story, and I’m an indie writer, illustrator, cartoonist, and all-around rapscallion. I’ve drawn comics for lots of publishers, done lots of freelance illustrations for a zillion customers, and I also write novels and short stories. You can go to this blog’s link page and […]

Midnight Rambler

Greetings and Hello, My Friends:

There is an interview with me on the Pen & Cape Society’s podcast, Throwing the Gun. It’s a pretty good conversation, really, as Jim Zoetewey proves to be a good interviewer. I had sort of given up that this would ever come out because it took about five months, but […]
