Time Out says

Spain punches above its weight in the comic world, producing more than its fair share of world-class illustrators, and this, the country's biggest annual comic festival, reflects the strength of the tradition. Last year’s attendees included veteran DC draughtsman José Luís García López, Enrique Sanchez Abulí, who scooped the Gran Premio for Torpedo 1936, his ultra-hard-boiled crime series, and American comic book theorist Scott. The festival is huge, occupying two floors  with displays from big publishers, independents, shops, underground comics and fanzines. There’s also world-class cosplay, author signings all weekend, and comic workshops for adults and kids.
