GETXO COMIC FAIR

The Salón organises myriad comic-related activities (workshops, talks, exhibitions, masterclasses…).
In addition, it has a retail area for fanzines, magazines, specialist bookshops, and publishing houses.
One of the Salón’s many attractions is that besides acquiring the latest publications or finding legendary issues, visitors may attend signing sessions held by famous authors within the field.

Entrance to the venues is free, although access is limited.
