Comicfestival Hamburg brings exceptional culture into everyday spaces. Its annual mission is to introduce comic art, often seen as a niche interest, to a broader audience. Since 2006, the festival has been bringing comics to cafés, shops, and walls in St. Pauli.
Meanwhile, the festival has become one of the most important gatherings in the German comic scene. With a free program that includes exhibitions, workshops, readings, and a fair, the festival brings comic art to both industry experts and local residents in St. Pauli and Neustadt. In close collaboration with the Illustration Department at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, the program focuses on supporting promising local artists.
