Batman, Superman, Flash, Green Arrow, Deadpool, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America are coming to Paris for the first comic convention the city has ever seen.

And the fans of these super heros can’t wait in anticipation. The famous Comic-Con of San Diego, California, is making its debut in Paris in October of 2015 for three whole days. 

Comic-Con is an annual convention dedicated to comics and the universe around them: from super héros to films, animated drawings, television series, games, and even card games.

More than just a simple convention, its truly a festival of experts: thousands of fans come dressed in costumes of their favorite characters, production companies present their latest projects, and new comics and advertisements are highly publicized (like Batman V Superman or Star Wars this year), and even real-life stars who play these characters come to this event.

Created in 1970 by fans of comics, Comic-Con has become in its short 40 years an obligatory rite of passage for big films to test out the audiences (who are savvy and difficult to convince). Each year, the bar seems to get raised more and more.

Comic Con Paris, by the tourist in paris

We have no doubt that the Parisian event will live up to the highest expectations and not just copy the American version. Louis Leterrier, the French director of the “Incredible Hulk”, acts as the godfather of this convention – Comic Con Paris will be the occasion for fans to meet their favorite artists, actors, and creators and discover exclusive content and news all the while.

Some of the stars attending: Franck Miller (notably the author of the animated drawings of The Dark Knight Returns who inspired the Batman trilogy of Christopher Nolan and the anticipated Batman V Superman), Shawn Ashmore (X-Men), Joann Sfar (Le chat du Rabbin, Gainsbourg Vie Héroïque). See the complete list here.

For complete information on Comic-Con Paris, check out the official site of the event. And reserve your tickets here.

When? October 23rd, 24th, and 25th, 2015.

Where? La Grande Halle de La Villette
211 Avenue Jean Jaurès, 75019 Paris
Metro: Porte de Pantin (Ligne 5)
