La Massana Còmic - Joan Pieras Museum
Location and contact
Plaça de les Fontetes, s/n
This original museum in the Plaça de les Fontetes in la Massana is a place of cult for comic lovers.
It regularly hosts thematic exhibitions by internationally renowned authors such as Antonio Bernal, who opened the museum with the exhibition Joies Literaries (Literary Gems), Alfonso Font, Philippe Xavier, Ana Miralles, Joan Mundet and Carlos Ezquerra, among many others.
Since 1 March 2019, the museum has also had a reference area divided across two floors, where you can consult more than 1000 copies. The bibliographical collection is made up of pieces dating from the year 1904, such as Little Nemo in Slumberland, then passing through the '40s to the '70s, with Spanish works such as Capitán Trueno (Captain Thunder), Esther y su mundo (Esther and her World) and Hazañas bélicas (Deep War), until the present day. You'll also find European comics, such as the famous Tintin, Lucky Luke or the endearing Asterix and Obelix, as well as American comics, such as Prince Valiant or Flash Gordon, and other specimens, including Marvel, Manga and the traditional Cimoc and Creepy comics magazines of the '80s.
You can also find VHS or DVD films in the archive, as well as various art books.
