Iron Man artist and comics legend Bob Layton will be attending a press conference in Hannover on 28 January to officially unveil the new show. Dubbed the definitive Iron Man artist, co-creator of Marvel’s War Machine and co-founder of Valiant Comics, Bob has proved a fan favourite at recent MCM Comic Cons.
“The new Hannover show and MCM Belgium Comic Con are the first to be launched under our ‘MCM Central’ brand, announced earlier this month,” said MCM managing director Bryan Cooney. “It marks the first stage of our accelerated growth plan for 2016 and beyond, which will see MCM broaden its UK offerings and roll out events across mainland Europe.”
The organisers of London Comic Con – the world’s third largest comic con with more than 130,000 visitors over three days – MCM already hosts events throughout the United Kingdom, as well as shows in Dublin, Belfast & Brussels . MCM events feature a wide range of media, from movies, comics and videogames to online video, anime and cosplay.
