This weekend we are heading off to Birmingham to attend the MCM Comic Con at the NEC. We are so excited as the show is set to be absolutely incredible.
What is MCM Comic Con?
Comic Con is the biggest Pop Culture event known to man. It takes everything we know and love, wraps it up into an event buritto and then awaits for us to devour it, savouring every mouthful.
From superheroes to gaming, cos-play to meeting the stars, there is something in the pup culture universe to tickle everyone’s taste buds.
When is MCM Comic Con Birmingham?
The Birmingham Comic is held at the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) in March and November. The next event is 21st March – 22nd March 2015.
What’s going on this year at Comic Con?
There is so much to see and do this year, we aren’t sure where we will start!
Dealer Stalls & Comic Village
Whatever you love to collect, play, read and do, if it is Comic Con related there is sure to be a stall that sells what you are looking for.
