MCM Manchester Comic Con


It is that time again, Comic Con has come this time to Manchester and the Erisea team are headed over there at the weekend!

Comic Con is an event that celebrates everything and anything to do with comics and the world around them.  This includes film, TV, books, cartoons, comics, writers, stars, creators, Cos Play, gaming and much, much more.  It is an event that will overload your senses and have you weak at the knees, you know, if that’s your thing and it is definitely ours.

So what’s on this year in Manchester?

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.  From collectors cards to comic books, action figures to memorabilia from your favourite TV shows and movies, the hall will be packed with goodies to puruse and buy.

Cos Play

There is also Cos-Play of course and a Masquerade on the main stage! You can pay on the door, so don’t fret if you haven’t got one yet!

Games Expo

At Manchester Comic Con there is going to be a special area of the arena dedicated to gaming.  You will be able to get your hands on some of the new games that have just launched onto the market and even a few that are yet to be released.
