ComicInvasionBerlin organizes comic events and campaigns and, since 2012, the most colorful comic festival in the Hauptstadt, where artists and publishers can present their new work and network. In addition to the exhibitor tables, the festival offers all kinds of events where the comic medium is brought into action in an entertaining way.
There are exhibitions, drawing battles, book signings, mini-concerts, a comic exhibition in the basement, a comic quiz with prizes, a children’s drawing corner, a satellite event program in various Berlin comic locations and a comic competition, whose winning work will be featured in a ComicInvasion zine.
As part of the comic competition, ComicInvasion has been awarding the Berlin Comic Förderpreis since 2015, with which young local comic artists can realize a comic project.
ComicInvasion sees itself as a platform primarily for the local Berlin scene, a festival by those interested in comics for those interested in comics. Everyone who wants to participate or show their work has the opportunity to do so.
ComicInvasion is funded by Haupstadtkulturfonds.
