Part one of the biannual London edition of the UK’s biggest pop culture event—the second takes place at the end of October. Cosplayers, film geeks, and graphic novel fans gather under one colourful roof in to pledge their pop cultural allegiance. This year’s special guests, from big and small screen, include Sebastian Stan from Captain America, David Harbour of Stranger Things, Jason Mewes (Jay from Jay & Silent Bob) and Elizabeth Maxwell of RWBY.
In addition to meeting persons of interest, you’ll also get to try out the newest (or upcoming-est) games on the market. And to go the extra geek-out mile, stop by the PopAsia area within MCM London Comic Con. It offers a fusion of Japanese and Asian culture. You can take part in and experience many cultural powerhouses including music, food, fashion, anime and manga.
If you’d like to cosplay, you can show up in your attire or get changed there. Just head to the cosplay desk for further directions.
Going for the first time? Check out previous year’s offerings for inspiration, and transform yourself into a DIY superhero or graphic novel character. Get close to the backstage action and nab free entry to MCM Comic Con London by doing two volunteer shifts as a steward.
Tickets range from £17.50 to £69.50.
