MCM Comic Con to launch shows in Germany and Belgium
MCM Comic Con is to bring its world famous pop culture events to Germany and Belgium this summer, with MCM Hannover Comic Con coming to Hannover Messe on 4-5 June and MCM Belgium Comic Con taking place at Brussels Expo on 11-12 June.
Iron Man artist and comics legend Bob Layton will be attending press conferences to officially unveil the two new shows in Brussels on 27 January and Hannover on 28 January. Dubbed the definitive Iron Man artist, co-creator of Marvel’s War Machine and co-founder of Valiant Comics, Bob has proved a fan favourite at recent MCM Comic Cons.
"The new Hannover and Belgium Comic Cons are the first to be launched under our 'MCM Central' brand, announced earlier this month," said MCM managing director Bryan Cooney. "They mark the first stage of our accelerated growth plan for 2016 and beyond, which will see MCM broaden its UK offerings and roll out events across mainland Europe."
The organisers of London Comic Con - the world's third largest comic con with more than 130,000 visitors over three days - MCM already hosts events throughout the United Kingdom, as well as shows in Dublin, Stockholm and Malmö. MCM events feature a wide range of media, from movies, comics and videogames to online video, anime and cosplay.
