MCM London Comic Con




This weekend is the MCM London ComicCon and I’ve (once again) managed to score myself an invitation… which I’ll be putting to good use on both days.

With no Kapow! this year, this really is the best opportunity to experience a comic-culture show in London… if (of course) you didn’t make it to the London Super Con  earlier this year.

Check out the site and shout below if you’re planning on going.

Here are some teasers from the press team…

There’ll be panels and performances, costume displays and a photography area. The Cosplay Desk is also the place to go for the famous Masquerade entrants.

The MCM Stage will be full of performances, industry panels, competitions and giveaways as well as opportunities to see promos and trailers for some of the hottest up-and-coming movies and video games in the biz.
