Super Punch Interview: Scott Wygmans

Meet Scott Wygmans:

1. What is your idea of the perfect day?

My idea of a perfect day would be wakin up at a decent hour, makin some stinky, shit coffee and smokin mad cigarettes, and just drawing all day. Having a michigan winter snowing hard on the outside, forcing me to stay in and keep warm and just forced to be creative.

2. Describe one of the best moments in your life:

Best moments in my life? I try to make the best moments in my life all the time. I don't know if I could limit any of them down to one exact time, because I feel like I'm always tryin to be on an adventure no matter if it's liquored up on two 40s a colt 45 or just bein with my baby gurl going to the grocery store. I try to stay positive no matter what I'm up to. So far as best moments, they have always been spent with friends and family.

3. What is your most common nightmare?

NIGHTMARES ARE THE BEST PART OF MY DAY! hail ultimate warrior.

4. What are your three favorite possessions?

I go through phases of what's my favorite possession. Number one: is definitely my comic collection, I use it as a constant source of inspiration. I'm always trying to throw comics onto people who don't even read comics, just because I think the world needs to know how amazing stories can be. I have so much stuff, and don't regret anything. everything from issue 1-100 of spawn all the way to Ashley Wood's popbot, to every Hellboy and BPRD trade, to Judge Dredd to Cable to Lobo to the Maxx, all the way back again to Invincible and round it out with some mother fuckin SLAINE.

Number two: got to say it's this one Electric Zombie tee I have right now. Ever land that one tee shirt that always fits good every single day? No matter how many times you've worn it, always lands on those shoulders like putting on armor, so tight, so fresh (not literally, mostly smells like BO and pine sap) and feels so good. I go for dope artwork on my tees too, and before this tee, my favorite one was this Pig Destroyer "phantom limb" tee.

Number three: This is a stretch, cause thinking about all of the stuff I actually "own" is pretty few and far between, but if you remember the 80s you might remember this toy. I have the complete set of BATTLE BEASTS, which where this little 2 inch tall figures of animals wearing robot armor, and they had a special plate on their chest that if you held you finger over it, the decal would change to "fire, wood, or water". I always thought those dudes where super f'n awesome, and they where always something my mom bought me as a little kid. I'm big on little kid memories.

5. What is your goal for 2011?

Shit man 2011 along ways away! I feel like, my goal is to keep chugging along the path to doing great and honest comic book work, whether that's outside the field or inside making money. I love comic books all the way down to the marrow in my bones, and have dedicated my life to the pursuit of continuing it's greatness. So as far as 2011? I'd like to have some of my stories floating about in the world, getting my art into a many people's hands as I can. My biggest inspiration is making people feel great about reading comics, whether it's a cool story or just providing amazing artwork to the best of my ability.

6. What super power would you most like to have?

If I could have any super power, I'd probably just go with mutant healing ability. Anything to make me MORE like wolverine, is a step in the right direction.
