Celebrate Comic Art In A Uniquely Beautiful Setting
Following successful early editions in 2018 and 2019, and a triumphant return after the pandemic last year, Lake Como Comic Art Festival (LCCAF) is back with its fourth edition from 12-14 May 2023…
Founded by many of the same people who created Big Wow Comic Fest in California and Paris Comic Expo, LCCAF showcases the best of US and international comic talent in a relaxed and intimate setting. The festival boasts one of the most impressive line-ups on any continent, and this coming year is no exception.
The first wave of guests, announced over the holiday period, includes:
Stanley ‘Artgerm’ Lau, Ryan Ottley, Peach Momoko, Dan Brereton, Jenny Frison, Alexander Lozano, Eric Powell, Sozomaika, Frank Cho, Emanuala Lupacchino, Simon Bisley, Mark Bodé, Cat Staggs, Art Adams, Gabriele Dell’Otto, Lee Bermejo, Travis Charest, Geof Darrow, Arantza Sestayo, Riccardo Federici, Joyce Chin, Olivier Coipel, Simone Bianchi and Humberto Ramos – and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Joining those previously announced visitors in May will be:
Tanino Liberatore, Liam Sharp, Esad Ribic, Mark Raats, Enrico Marini, Milo Manara and more to be announced over the coming weeks.
“Our goal has always been to place comics front and centre,” say co-founders Arnaud Lapeyre and Steve Morger. “Too many organisers crowd their shows with cosplay and media guests, but we offer a return to those quieter days when fans could access their favourite creators and panels without distraction.”
Tickets are strictly limited and sold on a first-come-first-served basis for this year’s festival. Situated in the idyllic grounds of Villa Erba in Cernobbio, on the banks of Lake Como, Italy, this is a destination event like no other.
For lovers of art collecting, comics, and the people behind it all, it’s a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some of your favourite creators. Whether you’re a returning visitor, or first-time attendee, there’s no better place to celebrate and immerse yourself in the power of the Ninth Art.
You can stay up-to-date with the festival by following them on Facebook or Twitter, and stay tuned for all the latest announcements on their newly launched Instagram channel @LCCAF. Tickets and further information are available now from lccaf.com.
About Lake Como Comic Art Festival.
Launched in 2018, the Lake Como Comic Art Festival is a joint presentation between many of the same people who created Big Wow Comic Fest in California and the Paris Comic Expo.
As with prior editions, LCCAF focuses on the best creators from around the world in the comic book industry. There are no media or cosplay guests, or vendors selling trinkets only marginally related to the comic art world.
Unlike other festivals who seek more and more attendees until their shows are too crowded for anyone to access panels and creators, we actively restrict our audience by limiting the number of tickets available. Our goal is to harken back to the days when a fan could actually interact with their favorite creator!
With its very limited attendance, beautiful location and access to the very best comic artists, this festival is the new optimal environment for both creator and fan alike.
