New Johnny Saturn Reviews

Johnny Saturn: Synns of the Father

on February 10, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
Synns of the Father was my first foray into the enigmatic and fun world of Johnny Saturn. Created by Scott and Benita Story, readers are introduced to a wondrous setting where superheroes and villains remain colorful and enjoyable.
A former detective with the Spire City Police Department, Johnny has become so much more. With a skill set that rivals many of the iconic comic book vigilantes of our time, Johnny is capable of hammering out punishment to even the most powerful characters within this world. And that is something that is not often seen in main stream comics.
Driven by an innate sense of justice and a passion to bring the criminals to an end, Johnny Saturn is a no-nonsense take-it-straight-to-the-bad guy character. One who has paid for his passion in physical punishment beyond what ordinary men could endure. Despite an addiction to pain killers, Johnny Saturn enters a dose of reality into a world where angels, demons, and meta-humans are no better or worse than the populace at large-and yet capable of so much more.
Johnny Saturn is a fast paced fun ride that has been salted with psychotic and often sociopathic villainy. In this, Johnny Saturn is a unique character capable of feats beyond the human capacity in a world where super powered individuals appear as a commonality.
For me, Johnny Saturn harkens back to the days when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Savage Dragon, and Freak Force could be watched on Saturday mornings – then takes it to a whole new level.
I truly enjoyed the mixture of written prose in addition to sequential storytelling that offered a deeper insight into the characterization contained within this exciting tale. In many ways, it is very much a bountiful marriage of novel and graphic novel into one.
Johnny Saturn: Synns of the Father has become a welcome addition to my library of graphic novels, comics, and literature.

Another great graphic novel by Scott A. Story. I really liked the first in the series, and this, the second, continued on right where the first left off. I like the story-line, the writing and the art. The author/artist has some serious talent.

A Great Super-Hero / Super-Villan Story

Highly Recommended.

At first, I was a bit skeptical about this story. The dialogue in the first part of the book was a bit weak in my humble opinion, but the more I read, the more it grew on me. Knowing the author is also a comic writer, it felt as it he was writing short sentences to fit into a text bubble. But that didn’t last long.

I was immediately drawn into this story. It had so much involved; heroes, meta-heroes, aliens, ancient beings, ancient technologies, myths, legends, conspiracy theories…what’s not to like? But would it be too much for one book? Turns out no. There were parts of this book that were simply brilliant. I would have never put all these things together as the author has. It still felt like a graphic novel/comic, but that didn’t detract from the whole. I recommend this novel to anyone that enjoys Fantasy, Science Fiction, Pulp Fiction, Graphic Novels and Comics with heroes.
