From the very beginning OmahaBound has been the brainchild of Tim Benson. He had the idea to create something that would showcase and produce distinct art with a heavy focus on the Omaha comic book community. When he pitched the idea to me (David Banks) I saw his idea as something that would enhance my efforts to evangelize all things comic book bookbinding. Early efforts included instructional/informational videos.

After a year or so, Tim decided we need to stage a booth at a convention.

It was at Planet Comicon (March 2015) that Tim made his pitch to Stan Sakai for PANEL EXPLORATION. Much to our delight Stan accepted and that gave us 15 months to pull all the details of the event together.
