This weekend, if you happened to be out and about almost anywhere in the city, you likely saw at least one imaginatively dressed group of people walking to or from the quayside, and as it isn’t quite October yet that can mean only one thing; Liverpool MCM Comic-Con was upon us once again.
The city’s largest annual celebration of everything from films, anime and games to comics, and cosplay, MCM Comic-Con drew crowds of thousands to the Liverpool Exhibition Centre on the 11th and 12th of March to meet the likes of Trina Nishimura and Bryce Papenbrook from Attack on Titan and Chris Barrie an d Danny John-Jules of Red Dwarf fame, as well as browse the hundreds of stalls and take part in cosplay masquerade competitions.
As ever expanding attractions that draw in more and more each year, the MCM Comic-Con events are not to be missed by fans of anything fantasy, sci-fi or pop-culture and this year was no different; with young and old flocking to the escape of a convention hall filled with thousands of like-minded individuals and groups.
With MCM events and conventions in general occurring all year round and across the country there is bound to be something for you; and for everyone in the Merseyside area, Manchester MCM Comic Con will be held on the 29th and 30th of July, hopefully I’ll see you there!
