International Barcelona Comic Fair
The Barcelona International Comic Fair is one of the most important events of the sector along with the one at Angouleme. Opening today until Sunday 9th, this year's edition (28th) is focused on movies and videogames based on comic books or graphic novels.

You'll find stands for upcoming movies like Iron Man 2, The A-Team (yes! someone thought it was a good idea to take this crew to the screens!), Kick Ass, etc. and your chance to get your comic autographed by your favourite author as Jacques Tardi, Moebius, Gilbert Shelton (ah.. those Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers...) and others will be in the event.

The director of the fair, Carles Santamaría, said that the Barcelona Comic Fair (which occupies about 19,000 square meters) is a mix between the best of the Angouleme comic fair and the north amercian comic conventions (such as San Diego's Comic Con). The 28th edition has a budget of 700,000 euros, including the highest amount ever of public subsidy (22%).
