FANS of the world of comic book heroes met at the 2017 Festicomic in El Ejido.

The event hosted script presentations, film projects, workshops, video game tournaments, talks and exhibitions all from the world of comics and graphic novels.

The event is one of the most important comic conventions which are held in the province, organised by the Diablo Cultural Association in collaboration with the City of El Ejido and the Diputación de Almería.

The Councillor for Culture, Julia Ibáñez, visited the festival where she toured the different exhibitors and chatted with the attendees and film and comic fans.

The councillor encouraged all readers to attend the event because “it is a great opportunity to become familiar with this type of narrative and enjoy all the proposals offered, where comics coexist with universal superhero and villains of films and video games. In short, an appointment where entertainment for all audiences is guaranteed.”

Ibanez highlighted “the great work that the association has done in organising this comic room as a leisure alternative for our youth and as an event in which the whole family can participate.

The festival was born years ago as ‘Manta Marathon and Otaku culture’ and has been growing and gaining in prestige and recognition in recent years. Hundreds of fans and budding writers, authors and actors attended over the weekend in what was a fun-filled family activity.
