The Ottawa Comic Jam is a group of comic artists, writers and enthusiasts that meets at the Shanghai Restaurant on the last Wednesday of the month (except December). The Jam is a great way to meet new people, talk comics, draw together and encourage creativity. Themes are determined on a monthly basis and artwork can be of an adult nature. Artwork is collected at the end of the evg and posted regularly.
Please note bc of the ongoing pandemic, the physical Jam will not take place.

Please note: This is a friendly, open group of comic enthusiasts. Hurtful or disrespectful comments during a jam, or purposefully creating insensitive or hateful artwork will not be tolerated. You will be asked to leave if you are disruptive or disrespectful to fellow jammers.
It's that time of the year again, when kids go back to school, the OIAF takes over the city and Nuit Blanche #2 is merely a week away. Also, it is the time when the Ottawa Comic Jam
presents its signature jam of the year: The September BACKWARDS jam. Come to
the Shanghai Restaurant and join other comic artists, animators, writers and
enthusiasts as we tell stories backwards.
You begin with a six panel
page and start your story at Panel 6, describing the ending of the story. You
pass the page to another artist and they draw Panel 5 (and so on). Finally, the
last artist draws Panel 1 describing the ‘beginning’ of the comic. It’s loopy
and fun: give it a try!
