Hold on to your seats – the MCM Expo Manchester Comic Con is ready for lift off!
Next month sees the UK's perhaps most famous comic con arrive in Manchester, bringing the best in pop culture entertainment to the city for the first time.
Held at Manchester Central – formerly G-MEX – on Saturday 30th July, the very first Manchester Comic Con will bring all the magic of London's MCM Expo to the North West. Whether it's major games publishers such as Nintendo or leading film studios like Universal; top comic artists or sports star special guests; science fiction collectables or cosplay competitions, the organisers promise there'll be something there for everyone.
Already hosting hit shows in London and Birmingham, the MCM Expo Group thought it was high time that Manchester got to experience the fun of a comic con.
For the inaugural Manchester Comic Con, kids aged 10 and under will get free admission if accompanied by a full paying adult, up to a maximum of two children per paying adult.
