All you need to know for the big weekend!
MCM Comic Con London is a huge convention, and we understand that questions like “what do I see first”, “what can I expect to be going on?” are on most people’s minds! There is a ton of stuff to see and do, and pretty much something for everyone. We’ll be there too! Here is a break-down of what the convention has to offer…
