Comics and graphic novels are one of publishing’s fastest growing markets, and BCBF has dedicated a special Comics Corner to this thriving sector: a dedicated exhibition area with showcases and meeting tables available to publishers.
The Corner is designed to offer both BCBF Exhibitors – who will be offered special prices – and publishers not exhibiting at the trade show, their own space in this area exclusively dedicated to comic books. BCBF’s spotlight on comics will also include a broad raft of events, one of which is the BolognaRagazzi Comics Award, and there will be meetings looking at the comic-book publishing internationally. Among the partners Lucca Comics & Games.
Comic books also have a special section on the Global Rights Exchange, BCBF’s digital copyright trading platform.
Among the events at the BCBF last edition (2022) edition, dedicated to comics:
- Twenty Years of Kids Comics in Italy: taking stock and looking forward
- Twenty years of Global Kids Comics
- The Winners of the BolognaRagazzi Award 2022 - Comics category
- Kids Comics: comic books for early readers
- Translating comics and graphic novels
