Kendal's first ever Comic Art Festival is due to start in the town this weekend.
Organisers believe that it is the first time a comic art event has taken over a whole town in the UK rather than just one venue.
Over 30 shop fronts have been transformed - many by local schools and colleges.
There are exhibitions, talks and drawing lessons all weekend in Kendal.
