Helsinki Comics Festival

This year, Helsinki Comics Festival celebrates Italian comics and strips against an audio backdrop of heavy metal music. The festival is organised for the second time in Kattilahalli at Suvilahti. International guests include Becky Cloonan (USA) and Charlie Adlard (UK). The festival’s visual appearance has been designed by the Tampere-based comics artist JP Ahonen.

Organised by Finnish Comics Society, Helsinki Comics Festival is the largest comics event in Northern Europe that brings together comics artists and publishers from around the world. The festival attracts 20,000 annual visitors. This year, the festival will again host Zine Fest, which focuses on self-publishers.
