The 3 main themes will be as follows:
1) The 35th Barcelona International Comic Fair dedicates its great thematic exhibition to the presence of aviation in the comics, which has authentic masterpieces. The exhibition titled "Comics in flight", will have a scenography where you will be able to see real planes of real sizes and from different epochs that will be contextualized with large reproductions of aeronautical themed comics, very linked to the adventure genre.This exhibition will be located at the Plaza Univers de Fira Barcelona Montjuïc under a large covered structure that evokes a hangar.
2) The exhibition "Gaudí between vignettes" will allow the visitors of the 35th International Barcelona Comic Show to see the work of the brilliant architect through the comic strip. The show will be a tour of the comic "The ghost of Gaudí" by the writer El Torres and the cartoonist Jesus Alonso Iglesias, published in Catalan and Spanish. The exhibition will make you discover the creative process of these comics and at the same time will give rise to know different aspects of the universe of Antoni Gaudí, a visionary of architecture, design, recycling, energy efficiency, co-working or job security. The show will feature models, tools and various original objects that will complement the story of the comic.
3) Superheroes will also be present at the Barcelona Comic Fair, with the "Superheroes out of control" display, as well as an exhibition entitled "They called him Lucky Luke", paying homage to one of the most popular characters in the history of illustrated stories. We all have in mind how a superhero should be. The one who, above all, dedicates himself to protect the weak and fight crime. The one who always protects the law and respects people. However, this Comic Fair brings an exhibition about these individuals who have brought the archetypical superheroes to the forefront and who have given so many hours of fun to readers. There will be 25 key characters at an exhibition.
