Comica Festival

Comica Social Club



| JULY 2014 |

A great big party that gathers every month on the last Wednesday. A delightful social occasion where you can meet, greet and network, with the finest human beings you could ever wish to meet in comicsland, on all things comics, graphic novels or related to events at the Comica Festival.

Find out all the news, the gossip, and the projects, other members are brewing. Find out about all the other social groups in comicsland, as well. A chance to meet readers, cartoonists, comics artists, writers, illustrators, animators, too.

We at Comica believe that the social club has a secondary purpose, too, that may not be immediately obvious. New comics and graphic novels develop, when like-minded people form alliances, share ideas, and get together for the pleasure of co-creating.

Bring along your sketch-book and draw. Discover a graphic novel you would never have thought to read.

For several years now we have been meeting together, we have a Facebook group called Comica Social Club. This is the open group that we created on 6 September 2013. There are some without Facebook, of course, and this is your way to stay in touch.
