MCM London Comic Con at ExCel - heaven for comic book, games and sci-fi fans
If you have even a passing interest in sci-fi October 25 to 27 are essential dates to have in your diary.
This is when the latest MCM London Comic Con event will be taking place at ExCel London in Royal Victoria Dock.
Billed as Britain's biggest pop culture event and Europe's equivalent to San Diego Comic Con, it has gone from strength to strength over recent years and regularly attracts tens of thousands of fans.
Twice a year MCM Comic Con brings together a selection of special guests from the world of entertainment, TV, movies, video games and more.
This October’s special guests will include actors Lucas Bryant and Emily Rose who are two of the stars from cult sci-fi show Haven which is based on Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid.
For games fans, Rose is also well known for her role in the critically-acclaimed Uncharted series.
Cast and crew from supernatural crime series Lost Girl will also be at London Comic Con as well as stars from mystery drama Under the Dome and ‘X Files meets Indiana Jones’ show Warehouse 13.
If you prefer your entertainment from the East rather than the West then the JapanEX area is for you. This offers a fusion of Japanese and Asian culture including music, food, fashion, anime and manga.
Comic Village provides an opportunity for fans to meet creators, artists and writers, and includes panels from some of the top names in the business.
Meanwhile Games Expo is the place to see and play current and upcoming games from some of the world’s top publishers such as Nintendo, Koch Media, Namco Bandai, Square Enix, Konami and WB Games.
If any of this floats your boat at all, get your best cosplay outfit ready and go to www.mcmcomiccon.com/london/tickets for tickets.
