MCM Comic Con, the UK’s largest organiser of pop culture events returns to Manchester between 27th-28th July. The two-day spectacular will see thousands of sci-fi fans, gamers, comic collectors, movie buffs and anime enthusiasts visit Manchester Central to immerse themselves in a world of fun and fantasy. The show welcomes all ages and there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Some of the biggest stars from the world of movies, games and television will be taking part in various panels, Q&As and meet and greets across both days. This year’s stellar line-up includes Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Walking Dead); Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Gilmore Girls); David Mazouz (Gotham) Bryan Dechart (Detroit Become Human); Amelia Rose Blaire (Detroit Become Human, True Blood); and stars of RWBY, Camp Camp and Red Vs Blue, Samantha Ireland, Jen Brown and Shannon McCormick.
Coming in costume is the norm at the show, with amazing outfits roaming the floors of the hall, and the stage, as part of the Cosplay Masquerades. The Cosplay Central area also includes tutorials and Q&As to help visitors learn expert tips and advice.
Comic Village is also back, and packed full of graphic novels and comics to explore, along with a chance to meet some of the talent behind the work.
Also this year, MCM Comic Con introduces a series of new workshops, designed to help create, learn and inspire! From starting your own comic book; diving into game development; creating the perfect on screen superhero, world building in your first fantasy novel, to perfecting that cosplay prop – MCM is now offering fans the chance to be inspired with these hands-on workshops. Booking is essential and will be available on the website.
For parents and younger guests, The Treehouse is a place where families can relax and recharge, with free face painting and more to entertain even the smallest superheroes.
