Comic Action Essen

24. - 27. October 2019 | Trade and consumer fair for national and international comics

At the annual "Comic Action" in Essen national and international publishers and distributors present the whole comic bandwidth from A to Z, as well as an abundance of merchandises, thus giving a detailed overview of the domestic and foreign comic market. The trade fair is organised since 1999 and takes place simultaneously with the world's largest game consumer fair "SPIEL". Exhibitors use the event to present their products to a wide public having realized that this fair also is an ideal forum for their press and public relations. Collectors of curiosities also get their money’s worth at the "Comic Action", as numerous antique shops offer their products at the fair. The fair also offers a graphic artist corner which is a must attend on the "Comic Action", because it provides a space for young and unknown artists to present themselves and make drawings for the visitors. The exhibition grounds are easily to reach, both with the car as well as public means of transport. Around the fair grounds there are about 7,000 parking spaces for the visitors. Another 10,000 parking spaces are connected by P + R shuttle.

The 21st edition of the Comic Action takes place on 4 days from Thur., 24.10.2019 to Sun., 27.10.2019 in Essen.
