Press release as follows:

MCM LONDON COMIC CON – EXCEL LONDON – 23-25 OCTOBER 2015
Record crowds join the stars at MCM London Comic Con

Record numbers of visitors flocked to Britain's leading pop culture event MCM London Comic Con this weekend. The three day show saw 130,560 pass through the doors of Excel London, eclipsing the record-breaking 122,600 attendees at May's Comic Con and the 110,200 at last October's event.

Essentially this cements MCM London Comic Con's position as the third largest Comic Con on the planet - just behind illustrious US rivals in New York and San Diego. To add some UK context it's also around 10,000 more people than attended both the Man United v Man City and Sunderland vs Newcastle matches this weekend - two of premier league football's biggest derby matches.

Visitors to MCM London Comic Con enjoyed a whole host of sci-fi, film, television, comic book, videogame, anime, manga and cosplay content. Featured panels and Q&As included Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss on Sherlock and Doctor Who; Alan Tudyk and Nolan North on new comedy Con Man; Noah Wyle on Librarians; Charlie Higson on Jekyll and Hyde; and Gareth Evans on his acclaimed martial arts movie The Raid.

Comic Con also hosted panels by cast and crew from zombie phenomenon The Walking Dead, hit sci-fi series Humans, historical fantasy Da Vinci's Demons, re-imagined classic Thunderbirds Are Go, Dark Age epic Beowulf: Return to the Shieldlands; upcoming horror drama Outcast and CBBC sci-fi show Eve, not to mention screenings of Amazon Original's The Man in the High Castle and Mr. Robot.

Other special guests meeting fans at the show included Arrow's Cynthia Addai-Robinson; The Flash's Candice Patton; Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte; Game of Thrones' Ian McElhinney, Ian Beattie and Eugene Simon; Continuum's Victor Webster; Warehouse 13's Saul Rubinek; Under The Dome's Alexander Koch and Colin Ford; Doctor Who's Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy; Red Dwarf's Robert Llewellyn and Danny John-Jules; Adventure Time's Jessica DiCicco and Anime Guest of Honour Shigeto Koyama (Big Hero 6, Kill la Kill).

Meanwhile, the Comic Village was home to more than 200 talented comic book artists and writers including Bob Layton, John McCrea and Tony Lee; Vidfest's gathering of online video talent featured The Yogscast, Rooster Teeth and The Hillywood Show amongst many others; and the games zone played host to publishers such as Ubisoft, Bandai Namco, Koei Tecmo, NisA Europe and Rising Star Games, as well the MCM eSports Arena.
