Popverse is filming (and in some cases livestreaming!) over 20 panels from October's MCM Comic Con, and will be publishing them exclusively on our website during (and after) the October 28 - 30 event. These panels will be available for Popverse members at the 'Fan' level (or higher) or those that buy an MCM Digital Ticket. The MCM Digital Ticket will give you access to all of the livestreamed panels from MCM (see below), as well as additional panels filmed from the event and shared later in November.... PLUS access to Popverse's growing video archive of panels from previous shows, as well as our top-in-class entertainment journalism long-reads. The annual Popverse membership includes all of that but also next year's Emerald City Comic Con, C2E2, and New York Comic Con.
Please note: Portions of certain panels (including screenings, trailers, and sneak peek footage) will be blacked out by the companies running the panels.
