From May 5th until May 8th, Barcelona’s annual International Comic Fair will celebrate its 34th edition. Taking place at Montjuïc’s Fira Barcelona, the theme for this year’s event is ‘comics on wheels’, and will be dedicated to the appearance of cars, motorbikes and bicycles in comic books. There’s lots to get involved with, including exhibitions, talks, signings, workshops and competitions.
One of the most important authors in the history of comics, Frank Miller, will be attending the event as its Guest of Honour, and he will be giving a talk on Saturday May 7th. Miller created the comic book characters Elektra for Marvel Comics’ Daredevil series, and as well as the future version of the Robin character—Carrie Kelly—for DC Comics. The 59-year-old artist, who is widely credited for redefining superhero comics in the Eighties, also held prominent roles on the production teams for feature films Sin City (2005) and 300 (2006).
