From the 4th to the 11th of March 2011 you can see graphic novels, caricatures, cartoons and much more in 14 different locations in Linz. Several important exhibition halls in Linz, such as the Ars Electronica Center, the Lentos Arts Museum, the OK- Offenes Kulturhaus OÖ are working closely together in trying to show how media and comics interrelate and connect.
The presentation of Achdé’s latest Lucky Luke publication will definitely be one of the highlights of the festival. But you can also become a creator of your own comic if you visit the OK- Offenes Kulturhaus OÖ, or become a comic hero, if you dress up like one and participate in “Evatronic’s” photo-shoot.
The NEXTCOMIC Festival is one of the most important Comic Festivals in the German-speaking world.
