Europe Comics Back to New York Comic Con


September 6, 2017

For the third year running, the Europe Comics team is headed across the Atlantic this fall for the can’t-miss New York Comic Con. Running October 5th – 8th, this year’s edition is set to be bigger and better than ever, and so is our booth! For NYCC 2017, we will be coming with two of today’s hottest European comics creators: the French artist Brüno, adored across Europe for such series as Tyler Cross and Atar Gull, and the Spanish artist El Torres, who has left his mark on both sides of the Atlantic with his hard-hitting series The Suicide Forest and The Veil, as well as the breathtaking graphic novel The Ghost of Gaudí, to be released in print on time for the comic con by Magnetic Press/Lion Forge.

We are also thrilled to announce the presence of two other Europe Comics authors, thanks to our friends at the French Comics Association: Mathieu Lauffray, author of Long John Silver and the upcoming Shingouzlooz, Inc., an extension of the Valerian universe; and Fabien Nury, Brüno’s partner in crime for both Tyler Cross and Atar Gull. Nury has also been celebrated for his work as scriptwriter on the historical fiction series Death to the Tsar and The Death of Stalin — soon to be a feature film — and the upcoming A Son of the Sun, based on a novel by Jack London.
