MCM national event manager Laura McCrum says: “More than 35,000 visitors are expected to join us and our great line-up of special guests, comic creators and exhibitors when MCM Birmingham throws open its doors later this month.

“It’s always a joy to meet so many like-minded fans – many of whom come dressed for the occasion in cool costumes. 2019 is shaping up to be a great year for MCM, and we can’t wait to kick it off in Birmingham.”
