Fans of comics, games, sci-fi, manga, anime, movies and cosplay listen up. The MCM Comic Con is coming to Manchester on Saturday July 30th. The venue will be the spacious Manchester Central, which, used to be known as the G-MEX arena.
Our very own Tom Silkstone attended the London MCM Comic Con in May and had an awesome time. There were plenty of games there to play, panel discussions and Q&A meets. Take a look at his coverage to whet your appetite. See, worth a look for any gamer, even if you’re not particularly interested in comics.
Nintendo have already confirmed they’ll be there and we’ll keep you updated on who else signs-up. If the advertising on the MCM site is anything to go by, we’d say THQ will be there too. Saint’s Row The Third? Yes please! Warner Brothers are listed as one of the sponsors so we’re currently crossing everything in the hope that Batman: Arkham City will turn up.
Tickets are priced at very reasonable rates. £8 will net you an early entry ticket for an adult (ages 15+) or child (11-14) and allow you entrance from 9:30am. Or if you’d prefer to risk buying on the door on the day it’ll cost £5 for an adult, £3 a child and kids under 11 go free, with the doors opening to you from 11am. The event will finish at 5pm.
