Panini this year will not be at the autumn fairs of the world of comics, including the Lucca Comics, which will be held in the Tuscan city between October 29 and November 1. This was announced by the publishing house in a note. «Despite the remarkable and praiseworthy efforts made by the various organizations, the current health situation prevents the Modenese publisher from participating in trade fairs in the usual ways well known by the public. The company has therefore decided to maintain a prudential line, in compliance with the contagion prevention measures that it has implemented since the beginning of the state of emergency ”, reads the note.
«For this reason Panini has preferred to postpone the exhibitions in presence with readers and collectors to the next year. The decision was painful and considered for a long time, with the awareness that displeasure will be a common feeling between the company and the public “, continues Panini, who assures that” during the days of the events, it will always be active and present in the exhibition schedules with its own proposal of digital activities and invites everyone to follow its official social channels for updates on the program ». “Furthermore, all the titles and news that would have been previewed at the fairs will still be regularly published and available for purchase starting from the week before the start of the events”, he concludes.
With Panini, therefore, all its sub-labels such as Planet Manga and the Marvel, DC Comics and Mickey Mouse series will be missing. The titles that would have been previewed at the events, explains the publisher, will still be available for purchase as early as the week before the fairs. Little consolation for fans all over the world.
