Over the past two decades, there’s been a strong growth in longer-form comics for children and teens... Comics’ influence in other fields has grown, as well. In the movie industry, comic-book films have become regular blockbusters. In 2001, comic-book movies weren't seen as sure hits; in fact, 1997’s “Batman and Robin” had seemed to sink the entire idea of big-budget comic films.

If not, they will refuse to participate in the 3-day festival that was moved from its traditional January dates to late June.
