Scattered Comics is going all out this year for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. Several of the Scattered Comics creators were invited to attend the event being held at Sacramento’s River City Comics comic shop on May 3rd, 2014. This was a huge honor to the Scattered creators of whom will be the first time coming to this location. The owner of the store, Joe, was kind enough to invite a whole group of some of our top talents to be a part of this free comic book celebration. Not only will Scattered creators be on hand but they will have free “Scattered Sampler #3″ and “Nighxa #1″ comics to give out to the fans. (As long as supplies last of course). Also, Jay Wheeler of the podcast show “COMICS AND COFFEE“ will be attending the event as well. Here is the run down of which Scattered creators will be attending…

Frederick Allison Jr. (Hybrid Earth): Signing copies of “Hybrid Earth” as well as doing live commissions.

Jasmine Ellis & Calvin Ellis Jr. (Sworn): This will be a landmark celebration for this creative sibling team as they premiere the re-launch issue of “SWORN #1″ under the new Scattered Comics banner. Be the first to get this first issue and have signed by both writer and artist of the book!

So if you are ready to get your hands on some free comic books, meet the creators, and just have a great time celebrating this cool holiday, come on down to River City Comics!
