Neither Heaven nor Hell can contain Johnny Saturn and Dr. Synn as they continue to wage their personal war using all the tools at hand, including an angel bent on returning Johnny to Heaven and a demon who wishes he were back in Hell. This two time winner of the 2008 Webcomic Reader's Choice Award also introduces the beautiful but mysterious Persephone, who has her own agenda and is calling in the troops to help her win.
"Johnny Saturn," it's like mythology, with superheroes, in the Midwest. His is a world of high-flying, trendy superheroes who live like celebrities, and a shadowy, back-alley world where mystery men, those old school vigilantes who rely on their fists and indomitable wills, wage lonely wars on crime. "Johnny Saturn" is a heady blend of horror, conspiracy theory, superheroes, the paranormal and classical myths.
Here is what reviewers say about "Johnny Saturn":
• According to Ariel Carmona Jr. on Silver Bullet Comics, "...Saturn is a tour de force and well worth reading."
• Brant Fowler in his column Indy-Pendant on Comic Avalanche writes that "Story's writing is classic and timeless, and fun yet smart. His art is beautiful, dynamic and energetic."
• Kurt Anthony Krug in "The Comic Buyers Guide" gives "Johnny Saturn" 3 ½ stars out of 4, and states "You'd swear this title were published by one of the larger companies instead of by Scott Story and his wife, Benita."
• John Wilson in his column Graphic Content on Comic Related says that "In an era of over processed, over rendered and generally overblown art, it is refreshing to see line work and style that harkens back to the best days of the Silver Age"
• Joshua Pantalleresco of Indy Spotlight wrote "As for the art, Story is amazing. His pencils are crisp and are some of the best I've seen."
• Bob Freeman on Byte Marks gives Johnny Saturn 4 out of 5 stars, saying "Johnny Saturn, in summation, rocks."
