Gaijin Studios was a group of American comic book artists formed in Atlanta, Georgia. It was one of the longest-running collectives of freelance comic book artists in the United States, in continuous operation for nineteen years, from 1991 to 2010. It has long been considered by many in the comics industry to be an influential training ground for some of the more prominent creators of the 1990s and 2000s, including Brian Stelfreeze, Adam Hughes, Cully Hamner, Jason Pearson, Dave Johnson,[1] Tony Harris, Karl Story, Georges Jeanty, Laura Martin.[2] Its core roster consisted of Stelfreeze, Hamner, and Story during most of that time.

On April 1, 2010, Gaijin Studios announced that after almost nineteen years, they would be closing the studio for the foreseeable future, calling it an "indefinite hiatus".[3]
