This is the first time the National Museum in Krakow has organised an exhibition showing original works, publications and objects from 1871–2017 connected with comics in Poland. All the objects are part of the private collection amassed by Wojciech Jama – one of the exhibition curators. On display are over 600 items including: sketches, pages, blueprints, albums with drawings and autographs, as well as books,
catalogues, magazines, occasional prints, unique figurines, toys, coins, stamps and everyday articles.
Tampere Kuplii is a feel-good comics festival for everybody interested in comics and graphic novels. The festival is free of charge for the attendees, and everyone is welcome. The weekend programming consists of lectures, panels, signatures, competitions and various free-form activities. While most of the programming will be in Finnish, there will also be items to enjoy even if you don’t speak Finnish, for example our cosplay competition and several comics-related exhibitions. Comic vendors will be selling comic books also in English (and a lot other interesting stuff, too!) during the weekend. Our staff as well as our many vendors will also be happy to assist you in English.
