In the COMIC WORLD area, diverse publishers present themselves with their latest products and services.
Matching the naming of the area, you will be able to find artists, comic professionals and authors here.
But also for collectors there is enough to be looking forward to: merchandise and comic book vendors will have plenty of new and classic stuff for you to buy.
In addition to the publishing companies, there will be a large ARTISTS ALLEY section in COMIC WORLD area, where you will meet international and national artists & craftsmen who are ready for you to draw you some nice artwork or answer your questions on stage and in workshops and panels.
After his debut at the German Comic Con Frankfurt 2017 where he designed the German Comic Con Frankfurt and German ComicCon Berlin 2017 Artwork for our Crew-Shirts, we are very excited to have him again at our German Comic Con Dortmund! Get ready for the great Michael Holtschulte!
Michael Holtschulte lives and works as a Cartoonist in Herten. He is a published artist in many newspapers and magazines (u.a. Süddeutsche Zeitung, Titanic, Stern, YPS, taz, Eulenspiegel, Deadline). In 2012 Michael Holtschulte was rewarded with the audience award of the german award for political cartoons and in 2014 awarded the "Deutscher Karikaturenpreis".
Holtschulte became particularly famous through his series of cartoons "Tot aber lustig" (dead but funny), which are often characterised through cynical and black humour..
In 2004 he published his first book and in 2005 followed his cartoon website www.totaberlustig.de. This is where he keeps publishing new cartoons at least once per week. In 2015 the Lappan Verlag published the book TOT, ABER LUSTIG in honour of his 10 year anniversary. The demand by the public as astonishing and the book was sold out after just three weeks, the 2nd edition was released shortly after and a live tv appearance on the show TV Total followed.
Currently on the market is his colouring book of death.
Meet Michael at the GERMAN COMIC CON DORTMUND at the LAPPAN booth and let him draw a cool and individual something for you!
And of course he is also again responsible for our current artwork for the GERMAN COMIC CON DORTMUND CON!
Because of his "MALBUCH DES TODES" with its incredible multifaceted cover, we chose the GERMAN COMIC CON DORTMUND 2017 ARTWORK accordingly. Holtschulte varied the cover to include different sights in Dortmund and of course with some fandom stuff! Gotta find them all!
We are very proud of the result and are looking forward to the posters an all the merchandise and VIP Items like the German Comic Con bags, lanyards, Art-Print and T-Shirts .

"After I had already designed the crew shirts twice and now had to design the official artwork for my quasi-home game of the German Comic Con in the Ruhr area, of course, the ambition had grabbed me. I wanted to draw a picture to suit the event. Anyway, I pondered a long time until I looked at the cover of my painting book of death. That's it! The background, created like a wimmelpicture, it urged me. So I was able to appreciate everything from series, films, cartoon to comic artists and the location. In a high double-digit range, I drew elements to consider them all and exchanged them in the motif. I had a little underestimated the effort, but I am incredibly happy with the motive and hope that the guests and the audience like it as well." - Michael Holtschulte
