The inner city of Narni, among the Municipal Theatre, the cloister of S. Francesco, the church of San Domenico and the gardens of San Bernardo, is ready to host for the second consecutive year (until 2010 took place at the Rocca Albornoz, ed) the Comic-Con Narnia Fumetto. September 8th and 9th, 2012.
At the 7th Comic Market-Exhibition of Narni will be present approximately 40 authors, some "mangaka", among which Dave Gibbons, illustrator of a graphic novel hit like "Watchmen"; Gabriele Dell'Otto, author of the poster of 2012 Narnia Fumetto and designer of the mini-series "Secret War" (released in Italy as the "Guerra Segreta", with texts by Brian Michael Bendis), Wolverine and Avengers; Pino Rinaldi, first Italian Marvel author.
But there will also be publishers, conferences and presentations of premières. Not to mention the spaces for the Cosplay Contest (impersonation of a character of a cartoon-anime and/or manga-comic or a film), for role-playing games and “live fights”.
After celebrating the first 25 years of life (and the first 300 publications) in the last edition, at Narnia Comics, thanks to the association Dylandogofili, is back the Italian “indagatore dell'incubo” (nightmare investigator) Dylan Dog, thanks to an exhibition dedicated to Bruno Brindisi called: "22 years of Craven Road". The author will be present at Narni (opening exhibition at 11:00 on Saturday, September 8th, 2012 until September 15th at the hall of the Teatro Comunale).
The biggest news this year is the first edition of the “Leone di Narnia Fumetto” prize, a competition dedicated to Italian comics with a mixed formula: the five nominations for each of the six categories that will be awarded (plus 2 special prizes awarded by the organization) on September 9th, 2012 were chosen by the public on the web. The "experts" have voted then, given a choice, of course, only among the Internet nominees.
The exhibition, on both days, will observe the following times: 10:00 to 20:00. Ticket price € 5.00, including, for the first thousand visitors both Saturday and Sunday, the number 22 of the series MYTICO!.
