Lucca Comics and Games 2021
Lucca Comics and Games is back! Following on from it’s success in 2019, the second largest Comics and Gaming convention in the world returned the world stage having been postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic. Strike were tasked with helping to raise awareness of the festival within British press, many of whom aren’t fully aware of the scale of the event. We were delighted to work with illustrious novelist, illustrator and filmmaker Frank Miller (300, Sin City, Elektra).
To help support the festival and his up and coming documentary, American Genius, Frank spoke to Metro, GamesRadar and SciFiNow.
This year Italy is honouring Dante Alighieri, the poet and philospher, by celebrating the 700th anniversary of his death and Dante’s Divine Comedy sets the tone for the returning festival – a community event that not only produced culture but creates a place where people can share experiences by occupying and interacting with and within a unique and monumental city. Light is the synthesis of this new Lucca Comics & Games, which signals a passage from dark to light, and paves a road to a new kind of normal. Visitors will go back to meeting creators of universes that have been an integral part of the festival – comics, games, storytelling, modern mythologies and big and small industries represented in these worlds.
