The only Greek festival exclusively devoted to comics, Comicdom Con Athens, is organized for the seventh consecutive year at the Hellenic American Union.
Special guests for this year are: the popular Italian artist Milo Manara, the distinguished British screenwriter Mike Carey creator among other of X-MEN Legacy, the rising Turk artist Yildiray Cinar, and the British comics artist Rufus Dayglo, widely known for relaunching Tank Girl. American independent cartoonist Douglas Paszkiewicz (invited by Jemma Press Publications), and British illustrator Zara Slattery (in cooperation with the British Council) are also included in the guests list.
The exhibition "2000 A.D.: The Judge Dredd Revolution", is also organized as part of the festival and in cooperation with the renowned British artist Rufus Dayglo. The exhibition is dedicated to the historic and highly influential British comics anthology 2000 A.D., which is the “home” of Judge Dredd, one of the most popular comic characters worldwide.
The animated film Dr Seuss’ The Lorax’ is being premiered in Greece as part of the festival’s screenings. The program also includes screenings of the films TheIndependents and Despicable Me. Finally, integral part of this year’s festival is a rather interesting program for children based on creativity and fantasy.
