There are also retrospectives to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Batman and the 40th anniversary of Wolverin. Other exhibitions are devoted to the winners of the 2013 edition of the fair.
Among the list of confirmed foreign guests are renowned authors like North-American journalist Joe Sacco, British Andrew Wildman (Transformers), Mike Carey (The Unwritten), Argentine Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets), French authors Audrey Spiry (En silence), Chloé Cruchaudet (Mauvais genre) and Italians Manuele Fior (L'intervista) and Pasquale Del Vecchio (WW2.2) and Serbian RM Guera (Django Unchained).
