The Big News!! Arriving This Week
ARTIST JAM THIS SATURDAY:
Tue Jan 19, 07:48 PM

The Krypton Comics Artist Jam began in September 2005 as a way for local comic book artists Max Riffner & Fredd Gorham to spend time at their favorite comics shop and draw. Originally, the idea was that these two artists would escape the boredom of their homes and spend a Saturday surrounded by what they love best while working on their various art projects. The owner of the store, Dean Phillips, had a similar idea: he had always envisioned having creative events 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 and site down, and make comics. Eventually these three individuals got together, brainstormed and came up with the Krypton Comics Artist Jam.


For the first couple of months, it was just Fredd & Max hanging out, doodling and heckling the employees of the shop. Soon they were followed by their friend Bruce McCorkindale, who fancied getting out of the apartment once in a while.
Soon after that, though, the word had gotten around about the event and artists from all over the local area started joining in on the fun. Now the Artist Jam is a regular event at Krypton Comics, and the rest is history.

The Artist Jam occurs on the third Saturday of every month, starting around noon and ending at 6pm. To join, simply come to the Jam, introduce yourself and find a seat.

The Jam is open to everyone regardless of skill or age.

You don’t have to be working on a comic book project to join in. Feel free to just come and doodle, paint, sculpt… whatever it is your preferred media.

Family members, friends, onlookers and other interested folks are more than welcome to hang out and watch. Grab a seat, we don’t mind.

Average attendance for the Artist Jam is between 15 – 35 artists whose ages range from 5 to 50+.

The Artist Jams are free social events. It is not a structured “how-to-draw comics” class or registered club. The idea behind the jams are to meet other artists, talk, share and enjoy.

Writers often times will come and work on their projects as well. Feel free to bring in your laptop.

Sometimes artists pitch in money to order pizza while at the event. Sometimes we bring in food to share. It all depends on the folks involved and what’s going on at the time.

Pick of the Week
CAPTAIN MARVEL #1, POISON IVY: CIRCLE OF LIFE AND DEATH #1, & MORE!!
Wed Apr 29, 08:38 AM

CAPTAIN MARVEL #1
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas (A/CA) Kris Anka
Face front, true believers! The Captain has made her return and oh, how mighty it is. It’s a bold new frontier for Carol Danvers as she soars to new heights in her greatest mission yet—leader of the all-new Alpha Flight space program. Yup, Alpha Flight. As earth’s first line of defense, Carol and her team aim to protect the planet from extraterrestrial threats. But can Carol be a soldier and a diplomat? Especially when an unknown enemy emerges that Carol can’t quite punch. The superstar team behind Marvel’s Agent Carter television series, Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, make their comics debut alongside the awesomely-talented Kris Anka.


POISON IVY CYCLE OF LIFE AND DEATH #1 (OF 6)
DC COMICS
(W) Amy Chu (A/CA) Clay Mann
Life. Death. Poison Ivy has power over both. But can she keep her friends and hold down a regular job at the same time? As Dr. Pamela Isley, she joins the prestigious plant sciences department at Gotham Botanical Gardens, but things quickly get complicated when a fellow scientist is murdered and it looks like the work of Ivy. Don’t miss the start of this new 6-issue miniseries!


PENCIL HEAD #1 (OF 5) (MR)
IMAGE COMICS
(W/A/CA) Ted McKeever
PENCIL HEAD is Ted McKeever’s semi-autobiographical take on the whacked-out world of the comic book industry. Journey along as we witness protagonist Poodwaddle’s trials and tribulations of working, and sustaining, his place in the absurd world of comics, where what happens behind the scenes is far more twisted, and bizarrely hilarious, than anything on the printed page.


SILVER SURFER #1
MARVEL COMICS
(W) Dan Slott (A/CA) Mike Allred
“Fantastic Planet”
The Surfer has taken Dawn Greenwood to the end of the universe, and now he’s going to show her the most fantastic planet of them all: Earth! It’s your homeworld like you’ve never seen it before: with monsters, magic and…a secret that will change everything! The perfect jumping-on point for the book everyone’s talking about!
