'Fanhunter: Drácula', official comic of Sitges' 50th anniversary

This year is the 25th anniversary of the appearance of Fanhunter: Drácula, by Cels Piñol and Chema Pamundi, a self-published story of humor, horror and science fiction that unfolds at the Sitges – International fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, which the authors attend every year, and that has become one of the saga’s most successful episodes as well as one of the most coveted by collectors. In addition, the figure of Dracula will be the leitmotiv of the 50th Film Festival.

This issue is cause for celebration for two reasons: the premiere of Gigamesh as a comic publishing company, and the fact that it is the first time the Sitges Film Festival is including a comic in the section of official books. The twenty-five years of Fanhunter: Drácula coincide with the Festival’s 50th anniversary, which Piñol and Pamundi pay an endearing tribute to: its emblematic venues, the moviegoers who gather together there and the town of Sitges, which both authors know well after years of obligatory visits as spectators or as accredited professionals.

The Gigamesh publishing company inaugurates the Gigamesh Excelsior collection with the reboot of Fanhunter: Drácula, redrawn and adapted to a new format thanks to which it can be enjoyed to the fullest. It will be available at the Barcelona Comic Fair starting on Thursday March 30th and, in all of Spain, on April 7th. In addition, the Comic Fair will be dedicating an exposition to the Fanhunter universe of Cels Piñol.
