In the time since it’s inception, the Artist Jam has been featured in the Omaha World-Herald, The Comics Journal and The Comics Beat, and has become a well know event within Omaha.


The Artist Jam occurs every third Saturday of the month from 12noon till 6pm in the gaming area of the store. It is free to all ages, and is a competiton free place for artists to come and draw, paint, craft, etc. .

The History of the Artist Jam

Early on, Dean had an idea: he had always envisioned having a creative event in the shop as a way to promote comics culture to everyone. He had hoped to have an area in his shop where there would be art desks set up so that anyone who wanted to could come, sit down, and make comics.

By September 2005 as a way for local comic book artists Fredd Gorham & Max Riffner to get out of the house and spend time at their favorite comicbook shop, they concocted the idea to hang out on a Saturday afternoon to just draw while being surrounded by all the things they love. They approached Dean, and that was when the Artist Jam was born.
