All you need to know before MCM Comic Con London 2015

There has never been a better time to be a geek.

MCM London Comic Con is a celebration for everybody from movie and video buffs, anime aficionados, connoisseurs of the many types of kryptonite to newbies ready to take it all in.

Over the past 13 years, the popularity of MCM (Movie Comic Media) Comic Con has seen it grow from a one- day event to a three- day, pop-culture extravaganza.

Last year, 110,197 fans ‘flew’, danced, jumped and sashayed through the doors of the London exhibition, the highest attendance to date.

This year’s event is set to smash that record too because for the first time ever, the exhibition will be spread across BOTH sides of the ExCeL. Want a statistic? MCM London Comic Con 2015 has expanded from 25,000 m2 to 34,000 m2!
