THE BIRMINGHAM COMICS Festival is proud to announce that on Saturday 24th June Birmingham City University plays host to the Birmingham Comic Art Show.

The Birmingham Comic Art Show will feature an exhibition of original and rare comic book art; exhibitors offering a diverse range of publications, with rare books, original art, plus the latest titles available; demonstrations & practical workshops; a full range of panel discussions, interviews with star guests and creators, professional critiques from publishers and editors, through to competitions and activities for all – with cosplayers in their full regalia and an all-important inclusivity guaranteed to make sure kids aren’t left out on having any of the fun!

While the Birmingham Comic Art Show is the newly branded name for the festival’s convention, it in fact finds the festival honouring the city’s historical heritage by restoring the city’s historically renowned name for such events, and comes under the full patronage of Phil Clarke who established the very first comic book convention in the UK in the city of Birmingham back in 1968.

The Birmingham Comic Art Show is the city’s personal invite into the world of comics, be they young or think they have seen it all before.  A chance to experience the cutting edge of comics today and rejoice in the great and good that’s gone before – From fans of The Beano to The Batman and all points in between.

What’s more, entrance to the Birmingham Comic Art Show  for 2017 is free! Yes, that’s right, free… All you have to do is claim your ticket at Eventbrite!
