Thanks to everyone who came along to MCM Midlands Comic Con on Saturday – especially those of you who came in cosplay! As always, it was excellent to spend time with fellow geek culture fans, and we hope that you all had a great day out.
Big thanks also to the special guests who joined us in Telford at the weekend – Doctor Who stars old and new in the shape of Greg Austin and Fady Elsayed from Class and Fifth Doctor Peter Davison; buccaneering Black Sails cast member Tom Hopper; Red Dwarf legend Chris Barrie; Game of Thrones and Rogue One actor Ian McElhinney and Sean Kelly, the fast-talking host of TV’s Storage Hunters.
Comic Con visitors also got to meet a talented array of comic book artists and writers in our Comic Village, which this year played host to the likes Marc Ellerby, Chris Askham, Kate-Mia White, Jenika Ioffreda and Jess Taylor, as well as check out exhibitors such as Universal Pictures; Manga Entertainment; Forbidden Planet International; Zavvi; Funky Collectables; Tokyo Toys; Go Virtual UK and drone and tech retailer The Fly Zone.
Having got MCM’s 2017 off to a rocking start with our Telford show, we’ll be playing a return visit to the Midlands next month with an even bigger celebration of all things good ‘n’ geeky – we hope you’ll be able to join us at the NEC on 18-19 March for MCM Birmingham Comic Con!
