The first Comic Biennial will be opened  16. Aprill 2010,  18.00 in the gallery  Kunstikonteiner/ Art Conteiner in the Culture Factory of Polymer. Curators: Elisabeth Salmin and Sandra Jõgeva. The main goal is to map the landscape of Estonian comic: exhibit the artwork of artists, who currently actively are working on this field. Aditionally add overview of artists, working in other genres but are also using comic genre in their works. In ideal, the main amount of comic artwork of the last decade will be exposed. Also suprise works from old famous classics and works of older generation comicmakers. http://koomiks.edicypages.com/en

The key figures in comic field are invited to talk on the meeting of literature "One is more crazy than other" comic-edition. Under discussion will come the future and the past of the genre.
