Booking Now Closed for Tables at the Comica Firecat Comiket 16 August 2014 at The British Library!

Posted: July 5, 2014

Comica Festival teams up with The British Library as part of their hugely popular Comics Unmasked exhibition to stage a very special Comiket Independent Comics Fair in the Library’s spectacular, spacious public foyer, mere minutes away from King’s Cross rail, tube and Eurostar stations.

The date is set for Saturday August 16th for our next Comiket, where once again the public will be able to discover the very best in comics and enjoy the live Drawing Parade of superstar artists. And yes it’s still all for free to reach out to as many people as possible! We’ll be announcing the first in our Drawing Parade line-up very soon.

Comiket is a premium event and major attraction of Comica Festival, a not-for-profit social enterprise promoting public appreciation of and involvement with the comics medium in all its forms.
