Barcelona to host comic fair

Barcelona to host comic fair
This is one for all you comic book aficionados out there. If you're filling up your comic book convention calendar right now and are wondering which events should make it in, consider booking a hostel in Barcelona as the city is holding its 27th International Comic Fair towards the end of May and it promises to be exciting.

First of all, you get a free comic with every ticket bought and if that's not an incentive, then I don't know what is. Secondly, the tickets are very affordable, ranging from €4 (£3.63) to €6 so there's really no excuse. You'll have loads of money left to book that room in a Barcelona hostel, get lots of yummy Italian food and still have enough remaining to make plenty of purchases while at the event.

Taking place from May 29th to June 1st, between the times of 10:00 local time and 21:00 local time, depending on what day you choose to go (on the Friday and Monday the show stops at 20:00 local time), the comic fair can be found at the Barcelona Fair Centre in pavilion eight.

And, for Batman lovers, an exhibition - Batman in Barcelona - is being put on, featuring original pages from this particular comic. Even more excitingly, it's something of a tour guide as well, with the adventures of the iconic hero mapping out a route along the city streets.

Last year's event featured works by cartoonist Tim Sale, who did the pictures drawn by character Isaac Mendez in the TV show Heroes and I for one am sorry that I didn't make it there to see them. I remember watching the series thinking how amazing it would be to be able to draw like that but, unfortunately, I have all the creativity of a spoon.
