Welcome to the Official Website of Scott McCullar

Ryan Scott McCullar (マカラ スコット) is a Professional Graphic Designer, Writer, and Visual Artist employed by the Illinois State Board of Education as a Principal Consultant. He is also the creator-owner of THRILL SEEKER COMICS™ Pulp Action & Adventure Anthology independent series featuring The Yellow Jacket: Man of Mystery™ that he writes and illustrates under his independent publishing banner named Bandito Entertainment™. Previously, he has worked for various publishers that included DC Comics, Campfire, IDW, Shooting Star Comics, and West End Games.


For nearly two decades, he worked in Higher Education as an Adjunct Faculty Professor in the Fine Arts and Communication Arts curriculum programs and served as a Marketing Communications Manager and Creative Director at a private university.


McCullar earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in Drawing and Printmaking from Illinois State University in 1993 and Master of Science (M.S.) in Management and Organizational Behavior from Benedictine University in 2012.


His interests are multi-faceted that include playing bass guitar, drawing, reading, watching films, and listening to music. McCullar is a black belt karate practitioner primarily studying Yoshukai hard style karate. In recent years, he briefly studied Shotokan abroad in Chichibu, Japan. Previously in his youth, he was a student of Shudo-Kan and Shito-Ryu styles of karate. He also studies other Japanese and/or Okinawan martial art forms that include Iaido, Kobudo, and Jiu-jitsu. On his own time, he assists in teaching self-defense classes with the Yoshukai Karate-do Kenkyukai dojo.


Born in Memphis, Tennessee, he has previously lived in California, Georgia, and a brief stint in Japan, – but for the most part – he has lived in the prairie lands of Central Illinois. Divorced, he enjoys spending quality time with his young adult children, Rachel and Mitch, and loves to travel.


Scott McCullar currently resides in Springfield, Illinois where he purchased a prairie-style design influenced home built in 1948 that he is restoring named The Lyndon House.



The Independent Pulp Action and Adventure Anthology series returns with a 128-page graphic novel re-mastered collection of the original short stories and webstrips published by Shooting Star Comics. Right now, you can be a crowdfunded supporter and order the book through KICKSTARTER through your pledge.
