Fumetto International Comix Competition 2016..
Each year, Fumetto – International Comix-Festival Lucerne holds a competition to give comic creators the opportunity to compare their work, present it to a broader public and to exchange views with others.
The competition's theme 2016 is
Temptations – Everyday we are confronted with countless temptations. When do we allow ourselves to be seduced by them – or manipulated even – and which allurements should we best stay away from? And how free are we to even resist them? Do they lead us into sweet happiness or bitter ruin?
