Warren Ellis To Attend MCM London Expo

He doesn't do that many comic book convention appearances. His visits to San Diego Comic Con have been fleeting, flying in, a panel, a signing, then flying out again. He's a busy man.

Even in the British Isles, he's not seen at Bristol, not at Birmigham, not at Thought Bubble in Leeds or in Dublin. He didn't even appear at the more local Kapow a few weeks ago. But he will be at MCM London Expo, held in the London Docklands at the end of the month. We hope.

The Comic Village section of MCM London Expo, run by acclaimed comics creator in her own right, Emma Vieceli, will also star Jamie McKelvie, Kieron Gillen, John McCrea, Gary Erskine, Becky Cloonan and more. The largest comic convention in the UK by far, it's held on the 27th, 28th and 29th of May, with around 60,000 visitors expected over the weekend. The show also features on anime, movies, gaming,toys and TV but its comics section has been growing and growing year on year. It also has a much younger and much more female contingent than the tradfirtional comic convention. And it's also hosting the Eagle Awards.

I don't have a table this year, but I'll be popping along as usual. Hope to see you there.
