The 1st Comic Book Festival in Contern took place in 1994 thanks to the competence and enthusiasm of Mr Daniel Grun. He was not only able to convince the commune’s authorities, but also a large number of voluntary helpers right from the start. Each year, roughly 50 comic book authors welcome visitors and present their newest works. The opportunity to interact with authors and illustrators personally makes it quite special. The comic-book weekend is an ideal platform to shop for numerous accessories, such as figures, posters and illustrations. They have been successful since visitor figures continue to increase each year.
