Comic Village

The Comic Village is definitely worth a lengthy gander. Here you will find independent artists from the UK and from around the world. You can track down existing legends in the field and discover upcoming comicking marvels. Check out the artist line-up here.


Now that we’ve all got our awesome Halloween costumes up to standard, it would be a waste not to come and try them out at one of the Expo’s cosplay events.

These include the Euro Cosplay Championships contest and the competitive Cosplay Masquerade.

At £10-£16 a ticket, the London Comic Con MCM Expo should be well worth a visit. For those of you who can’t make it, however, we will be posting a review of the event at the end of October!
