Great Britain Guest Country At Munich Comic Festival June 4-7!

Posted: March 7, 2015

Great Britain is the guest country at this year’s Munich Comic Festival, the second largest comic event of its kind in Germany, alternating every other year with the Comic Salon in Erlangen. In 2015 it takes place over the weekend of June 4 to June 7. Among the British guests joining me there will be Mark Buckingham, Rob Davis, Rufus Dayglo, Jock, Dave McKean, Mike Perkins (who illustrated the festival poster, above), Frank Quitely, Declan Shalvey, Posy Simmonds and Mary & Bryan Talbot.

As well as a featured exhibition of original artwork by British creators, there will also be a British theme to from May 7 to June 9 in the exhibition The Beatles in Comics on view in the Valentin-Karlstadt-Musäum. Other exhibitions to be shown deal with Will Eisner at the Jewish Museum, Paco Roca and Jordi Lafebre will present their artwork in person at the Instituto Cervantes, and Tom Bunk, who will be awarded our Peng! Award, will show his artwork in the Amerikahaus. And finally, the quaint Beer and Octoberfest Museum in the oldest private house of Munich will be part of the Festival.

The main location of the Festival from June 4 to 7 is the Alte Kongresshalle (Old Congress Hall) neighbouring the Oktoberfest site. Here, among other things, you’ll find the book fair of all the comic publishers under one roof. Also there will be drawing workshops and prominent comics creators will be available for autographs. There will also be various presentations and lectures as well as exhibits and a cosplay contest. Many prominent German and international artists will be guests at the Festival, including Don Rosa, Paco Roca, Julie Birmant & Clément Oubrerie, Reinhard Kleist, François Walthér, Denis Kitchen and Barbara Yelin. The updated full guest-list is here… Click the poster below to see a larger version…
