Batman came to Benidorm thanks to the Spanish comic cartoonist Paco Roca who brings Bruce Wayne to the coastal town on Costa Blanca for a mission where the superhero has to fight some evil entity that takes more of a human side, according to the artist. Spanish comic cartoonist Paco Roca was born in Valencia.
In the comic "Batman: The World", the American superhero visits 14 countries in a 184-page comic book. DC Comics, the owner of Batman, has asked 14 comic cartoonists to come up with and draw an adventure in different countries. The prize-winning Paco Roca was chosen for Spain. Batman will also visit North America, France, Italy, Germany, the Czech Republic, Russia, Poland, Turkey, Mexico, Brazil, China, Korea, and Japan.
