For the second time, Comic Con Paris joins forces with Free Comic Book Day (FCBD). This initiative, driven in France by the association BDCineGoodies, aims to introduce Comic Books culture to both aficionados and newcomers, and to foster accessibility. This association, founded in 2010 by a group of connoisseurs, promotes pop culture. This inventive campaign began in the United States at the beginning of the 2000’s, and then exported abroad, crossing the Atlantic and arriving in France in 2014.
Thus, bookshop owners celebrate the FCBD by giving freely special and unique comic books – published only for this occasion – on everyday first weekends of May. Furthermore, events like dedication sessions, contests or even lotteries are held simultaneously in the bookstores.
Bliss Editions, Casterman, Delcourt, Urban Comics, Panini Comics, Glenat Comics, among many others, provide comics from famous series such as Batman Damned, Fantastic Four, Le Pouvoir du Dark Crystal, Umbrella Academy and Star Wars Adventures.

On Saturday 4th May, we are waiting for you at Central Comics to celebrate this unique event !
From May 24th to June 17th at Galerie Sakura, in the exhibition Super-Normals II took place the mini-exhibition Comic Con Paris The Superheroes in Paris. Designed by the big names of comics such as Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson or Michael Lark, you could find the heroes of DC and Marvel on the Champ de Mars, at the top of the Eiffel Tower or in the Paris metro. The cosplayers were part of it, between ads, meetings between fans and shooting photos with the photocall ! It was such a good moment !
At Meltdown Paris, the Comic Con Paris, in partnership with BetaSeries, was able to organize a special evening: blind test, quiz and cosplay were part of it. By team, the winners were able to win places for the festival which will take place from the 26 to the 28 of October. Between gifts, new cocktails, revelations and tickets to win ... the evening was more than festive!
