Lucca Comics and Games 2010

Our annual report on Lucca's biggest event of the year: this year was longer and more crowded than ever, but also more rainy than last year. Despite 2 solid days of rain, 135 000 visitors showed up over the 4 days of the event.
One welcome change was more free areas, a game area just outside the Walls, The Citadel on the Walls... which mean that if you are not really into comics, especially ones in Italian or Japanese, there is very little reason to spend money (and a lot of time queueing!) on the tickets. even access to the Dragon hidden in one of the hidden passages within the Walls was free.

The main trends for this year: quite a few characters from Avatar, less Naruto than in previous years, and above all lot of red: red hair, red hats, red faces, and quite a bit of blood. Of course there were also, as usual, hundreds of anime characters I had never heard of. I did recognize Blastoize (a Pokemon) though but then it was one of the stars of the day.

The next edition will last 5 days, from October 28th to November 1st, 2011.
