For the first time since opening Fantastic Collectibles, Richard Simas Sr. and Richard Simas Jr. will be hosting an in-store signing.

Creators of Scattered Comics will be on hand Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. – that’s during the Manteca Pumpkin Fair – to meet the locals at 162 W. Center St.

Included is Ryan Taylor of Manteca. He’ll have prints of his “Anonymouse” comic books – artwork by Alexis Villanueva – for signing and will be available to answer questions about his upcoming comic book with the same title.

Noel Serranto will bring along his special edition sketch cover of “Blinth #1” along with his collection of prints and original art work for sale. He’s also the talent director and is welcoming artists to come by with their portfolios.

Serranto and others are looking to add the next creator to the ‘Scattered’ family.

Jasmine Ellis (Sworn) and Calvin Ellis (Sworn / Shadow Hunter) will be at Fantastic Collectibles to sign copies of “Sworn #1” and “Shadow Hunters,” respectively.

In addition, Warin Johnson will have copies of his already popular “Erabyss Preview,” which is 16-page prequel to his “Erabyss” series.
