Two-day or three-day attendees to the Lake Como Comic Arts Festival this coming weekend (have I mentioned I am heading out there as the influencer I am?) get, along with their entrance tickets, an exclusive 21-plates 2022 portfolio, free with 2-days and 3-days tickets, featuring artists attending or associated with the show. Other copies will also be available at the show for 75 Euros. That’s about $80 or £65. Given that individual prints from previous years sell from $20 to $50 each on eBay easily, that would seem a wise investment, especially if you can get them signed at the show.
Tickets to the show are available here, €125 for Saturday or Sunday, €200 for both and €450 for all three days including the Friday Night Opening. As you can gather from that price jump, the Friday Night event at Villa Erba is expected to be quite the thing. Anyone have a spare tiara?
Guests include Arthur Adams, Mirka Andolfo, Ryan Benjamin, Bode, Federico Bertolucci, Simone Bianchi, Mark Buckingham, Bodē, Pierangelo Boog, Dan Brereton, Giorgio Cavazzano, Mark Brooks, Giorgio Cavazzano, Joyce Chin, Frank Cho, Daniel Clowes, Iban Coello, Olivier Coipel, Giorgio Comolo, Andrea Cucchi.
