Pow! Zap! Comic book lovers rejoice. It's time once more for Barcelona's celebration of anything and everything to do with graphic novels. This year is the 37th edition of this International Comic Fair that's an unmissable event for fans of the likes of Batman, Asterix and Gokū. It has everything you'd expect: guest authors and illustrators, workshops, exhibitions, stands selling memorabilia and books new and old, awards and video games.

A new space is opening this year: Alter ComicBarcelona, a project to give small, independent, alternative or recently created publisher an opportunity to take part as exhibitors, sell their publications etc. There is also an entertaining educational area.
There's also a new 'Comic Kids' section, aimed at 5 to 12 year olds that hopes to encourage them to read and become a new generation of fans – activities include drawing, games, story telling and an exhibition that explains how comics are made. And who knows, maybe some of these youngsters will grow up to join the ranks of the many attendees who come to the fair dressed up. From Princess Leia to the Joker, Super Mario and Klingons, they create a colourful, amiable and lively universe where an addiction to comic books is the uniting force.
