UKers, there's a comic con returning this summer
MCM Comic Con

The dates for London's summer 2023 MCM Comic Con are here: May 26 - 28, 2023.

(And to make things even better, the Monday following May 29 is a UK bank holiday!)

Announced just days ahead of the fall 2022 MCM Comic Con (which we will be attending!), the summer 2023 MCM Comic Con will once again be in East London's ExCel Centre just off the Thames. We've already added to our growing comic conventions schedule.

Popverse Superfans will receive a special MCM Comic Con May 2023 presale link today (October 24). MCM Comic Con May 2023 tickets will then be available for on-site purchase at this weekend's MCM Comic Con October 28 - 30. Following that, online sales for the general public will begin on October 31. (Yes, Popverse is owned by ReedPop - which also runs MCM Comic Con.)

Launched in 2002 as the London Movies, Comics, and Media Expo, what is now known as MCM Comic Con occurs twice annually in London - with spin-off events in other parts of England. ReedPop acquired the MCM family of conventions in 2017, and at its height has welcomed over 150,000 guests in one ginormous weekend.

Stay tuned for more details about next year's MCM Comic Con - and get ready for this fall's MCM Comic Con with our coverage, which you can find here.
