The Big News


THE BIG KANSAS CITY COMICON NEWS:

No, not THAT one. But store manager Kyle is heading down to Kansas City this weekend for the SuperWorld Comic Expo!

If you’re in the area, stop by the booth and say hi to him! The show takes place in Lenexa, KS on Sunday, June 13th.

For further details, please visit: https://www.superworldexpos.com/

THE BIG JJ COHEN NEWS:

Actor JJ Cohen from Back to the Future is coming to Krypton!

A versatile actor with a long list of credits, Mr. Cohen will be appearing from 3-5 PM at
Krypton on Monday, August 2nd! We’ll have more information as the date draws closer.

Please check out Mr. Cohen’s list of appearances right here: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0169454/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

THE BIG MANDALORIAN WEEKEND NEWS:

Mark it on your calendars, Kryptonians – this 4th of July weekend, it’s Mandalorian weekend at Krypton! As we all get back out into the world, we’re presenting a weekend devoted to the best thing to happen to Star Wars in years, The Mandalorian!

We’ll have specials all weekend AND the return of Dominic Pace to Krypton! Mr. Pace will be here on Sunday, July 4th, and he’ll be here all day, from 12 PM to 5 PM!

It’s our big warmup for Free Comic Book Day this year (see the news item below), so let’s knock it out of the park!

THE BIG FREE COMIC BOOK DAY NEWS:

Some news organization in town advertised that FREE COMIC BOOK DAY was earlier this spring. The industry moved the date to August 14th. We are going with that date to allow for more people to be vaccinated and prepared. Cool Comics are on order and so on!

THE BIG STORE OPERATION NEWS:

We understand that this is a very strange time right now. It seems like things are changing by the day all over the country. We’ve got a few things we wanted to say here:

As of today, Krypton’s temporary hours are:
Sunday: 12 PM – 5 PM
Monday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Tuesday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Wednesday: 10 AM – 8 PM
Thursday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Friday: 10 AM – 6 PM
Saturday: 10 AM – 6 PM

We will be offering curbside pickup for your comics, if you just want to drive by and pick them up. We’ll pack them up and you can call in with payment, or other methods will be available based on whatever you’re comfortable with. All of our gaming events have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.

Our primary concern at this time is the health and well-being of our customers and staff. We know that this is a tough time for many of you and we want to be at our best in serving your needs.

We understand that everyone needs a distraction from the world and we think that comics are the perfect fit for that, so please let us do that for all of you if we can.

And most importantly, stay safe and healthy, all of you!

The Artist Jam

For the past 16 years, Krypton Comics has hosted The Artist Jam in order to gather artists and like-minded creative types together into an inclusive, creative community to draw, create, socialize and network. 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. .

  • Non-vetted Solicitors are NOT welcomed.

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.
