First Lourinhã Comics Festival between March 11th and 19th – Vida

The festival intends to “promote comics as a social, political and pedagogical tool and associate it with this municipality, where Escorpião Azul is located, one of the national comic book publishers, which is marking 10 years of existence”, he explained to the agency. The organization is Lusa, in charge of the Municipality and the publishing house.

More than two hundred original boards – also known as original sheets – of comics will make up the exhibition “10 years of Stories to the Quadradinhos”, open from March 7th to April 1st at the Municipal Gallery of Lourinhã, in the district of Lisbon.

The exhibition features works by 20 comic book authors, including João Amaral, Luís Louro, Paulo J. Mendes, Pepedelrey and Rita Alfaiate.

“The most varied styles and genres of comics can be observed, in which each author is unique and different both in the way of telling his story and in his line and technique”.

The originals make known the creation process itself, from the study, to the various layers of execution to the finished work of art, the various techniques and materials used, as well as the plot of the story, characters and settings.

The exhibition is part of the 1st Lourinhã Comics Festival, whose program focuses on the 11th to 19th.
