“Action Land” Manga Joins Scattered Comics

actionlandfran

“Action Land” Created, Written and Artwork by Eli Beaird

Scattered Comics is expanding its line of titles to include a Manga line and in so doing so, it is a great pleasure to announce the first creator-owned manga to join its growing library. “Action Land” brings the light-hearted and fun manga title that both the younger readers and grown-ups alike will come to enjoy and adore. Scattered’s Publisher, Jason Dube, had been considering expanding the company into manga titles and when Eli Beaird, the creator of “Action Land” sent in his manga as a submission last year, it just made sense to have his manga be the flagship for the entire new line.

Creator Eli Bearid explains the premise of “ACTION LAND”…

“Action Land is a theme park where the customers are monsters and the workers are superheroes. Will the new caricature artist Franchesca Sky find the power within to become a real artist?”

Scattered Comics Celebrates 25 years of Publishing

SCATTERED-LOGO(25th)Scattered Comics officially kicks off its 25th anniversary celebration with its Free Comic Book Day release of “Scattered Sampler #5”, and revealing its new cover format and special logo to follow throughout the rest of the year to all its new release titles. Not only will these covers mark the anniversary but be very temporary and limited. After the year is up, these books will go back to the regular logo. Some books will even take this opportunity to have a completely different cover altogether. So, be sure to collect all these special edition covers as they are released.

Along with limited edition books, there will also be special collection books to be made available during this celebration period not to mention brand new tradebacks, merchandise, poster prints, and a very exciting Scattered Expo at the end of the year.

Fans are also encouraged to be a part of the celebration by sharing their favorite stories, memories, experiences and photos from the last 25 years that will be shared and possibly put into a video presentation. (Fans can send video, audio or photos to: Jason Dube at scattered_cat@yahoo.com)

And even as Scattered spotlights the last 25 years, it is busy working on and looking forward to the next 25 years ahead.
