Comics, manga, creators and costumed crowds swarmed into the area of Plaza Espanya in Barcelona, Spain from April 17 to the 20 for the 26th annual International Comics Salon (Salَn Internacional del Cَmic de Barcelona), Spain's largest comic book convention...and Marvel was there!
I'm Alejandro Arbona, Assistant Editor of IMMORTAL IRON FIST, INVINCIBLE IRON MAN, THOR and DAREDEVIL, and I was in Barcelona to represent Marvel at the con, rock my Spanish-speaking skills and meet local creators and editors. Admittedly, I wasn't there as a Marvel.com journalist to dutifully cover con activity, and my picture-taking was strictly personal and purely for the sake of enjoyment.
But if you'll forgive me a few excited photos with renowned artists and a few touristy snapshots, I'll share with you my impressions of an extremely enjoyable four-day event that clocked an estimated 100,000 attendees. ،Buenos dيas, Barcelona!
