Advance ticket sales have topped a record 15,000 for the MCM Expo London Comic Con.
The comic, movie, manga and games consumer event also expects to draw an all-time high of 60,000 visitors – 10,000 more than the October show. It runs from Friday, May 27th to Sunday, May 29th at London’s Excel.
MCM Expo has partnered with GameSpot UK while movie Green Lantern has become the show’s official sponsor. X-Men: First Class and Thor writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz will attend as special guests.
“We are absolutely delighted to see advance sales so high this year,” said MCM Expo co-organiser Bryan Cooney.
“One reason for this unprecedented public interest is our recent media partnership with GameSpot UK. We were already the UK’s leading show for comics, movies, anime and manga, and this partnership ensures that the Expo delivers the best games content as well.”
Industry and press registration for the MCM Expo opens on Monday, April 11th at the www.londonexpo.com website.
A separate Midlands MCM Expo runs in Manchester on Saturday, July 30th.
