MCM Comic Con is coming for you, wherever you live, it seems.
The British Comic Con organiser, responsible for the MCM London Comic Con, and then spinning off around the country, went abroad this year, with shows in Ireland and Sweden. And that’s just the start.
This year saw two MCM London Comic Cons, as well as MCM Birmingham, MCM Telford, MCM Manchester, MCM Glasgow, MCM Ireland, MCM Belfast and the Stockholm Comic Con in partnership with Swedish event organiser Artexis.
That is probably more comic cons in different cities than any other comic con organiser, apart from Wizard World isn’t it? But that’s nine against twenty-five…
But MCM have the numbers. 401,000 visitors came to MCM events throughout 2014, compared to 258,000 in 2013. And the London show in May, the 25th MCM London topped 110,000 visitors putting it in the New York and San Diego leagues.
And for 2015, MCM is expanding London Comic COn to three full dys and adding a tenth show, again in Sweden, Comic Con Malmö, on 11-13 September 2015.
Fifteen to go, folks…
