International Comic Fair
This annual fair is a benchmark event for the sector in Spain, to the point where many of the genre's new publications are released to coincide with it.
For four days, thousands of comic fans –many of whom dress up as their favourite characters– go to the Fira de Barcelona to see the latest publications, attend exhibitions and get the autographs of some of their favourite artists.
In 2013, the fair's 31st edition received a total of 106,000 visitors. In 2014, the fair considerably extended its exhibition area from 19,000 to 32,000 square metres and dedicated exhibitions to the 75th anniversary of Batman and the 40th anniversary of Wolverine.
