The Dark Knight and the Cathedral

CCXP COLOGNE presents the Official Poster for its first edition, created by Ivan Reis and Marcelo Maiolo. In honor of the 80th anniversary of Batman in 2019, the artwork shows the famous Dark Knight in front of Cologne’s world-known cathedral, creating a stunning visual effect.

The tradition of an Official Poster for the show places CCXP Cologne in synch with the biggest comic cons around the world, including CCXP Comic Con Experience in Brazil. The artwork for the first CCXP COLOGNE poster was created by fan-favorite DC artist Ivan Reis, one of the confirmed guests for CCXP Cologne, and colored by Marcelo Maiolo, both represented by Chiaroscuro Studios. It shows the legendary Batman hovering in front of the famous Cologne Cathedral. The coloring is done in reference to the German flag. The poster was produced under license from DC Comics.

The poster is printed in a limited and edition and will not be on sale. Epic and Full ticket experience package holder receive the poster as a gift.
