First time, not the last time
As an attendee on the Sunday I was impressed by the combination of established big brands and small independent artists and gamers, as well as the exceptionally enthusiastic attendees. It felt like an otherworldly futuristic market championing all things creative. Arriving on the Sunday I appreciate that the space was "fourth day of a festival" with that a lot of tired people, but still the passion and expertise on show was enthralling. I have a professional interest in VR, so it was a good fact-finding mission for me, I hope to be involved in the future.

Comic Con is always impressive
MCM Comic Con London is a good opportunity for us to show new and upcoming titles or hardware that we may have on the horizon and a great way to interact with many engaged consumers and fans of the brand.

Rough around the edges
I have attended as both exhibitor and attendee from before MCM has changed hands. Prices have shot up. For exhibitor and visitors.l through the years. Which makes sense with needing more halls and more events. As a small company the price of tables has become intimidating especially with trying to make a profit myself. I worry that the volunteer workers don’t have enough knowledge of the areas they are marshalling and causing confusion with attendees. I have seen multiple complaints of the guests and visitors. Where visitors pay premium in advance and don’t feel they have received what they pay for. I would recommend that the treatment of the guest and visitor be revised. Guests are paying for an experience not to be streamlined through. Trading standards I understand their role in the event but I do feel some stands had been unfairly treated. When artists create artwork to sell its of their own work and not infringing companies. I would suggest having a mcm rep with the trading standards so that if the exhibitor can have a neutral character in the discussion and debate fairly whether stock should be removed. Overall I think with time it will get better. I would just be cautious ...    Show more

The same every year.
Sad to say the MCM Comic Con has now become so expensive, that it risks those who love to enjoy a weekend to express themselves, from attending. The floor plan for attendees isn't very good as it doesn't plot who is where. So if you are disabled, poor mobility, those who have walking aids scooters wheelchairs, visually impaired or deaf, you can't navigate to specific venders. There is no Quiet areas if it all gets too much for someone who is autistic and there for the day only. I've heard many Cosplayers say they wouldn't attend in the future as prices are rising for advanced tickets and released far too early, ie 1 week after one event in London for next one. I would suggest that the event organisers talked to groups to find out how they can make it a much more pleasant experience for those in the above categories I've mentioned and change ticket release policy and maybe have a discount for consessions like disabled people and those who buy Priority WEEKEND tickets.

First time at comic con
First time attending this event and I have to be honest and say it was really eye opening. I enjoyed the space, the creatives and the energy. I never though they were many more people who were interested in the same things as I did. Great for networking. Can’t wait for it next year.

A great place to be in London
It's great every year, great special guests, mostly the same the exhibitors. It's a great day of out whether you're cosplaying or not. My only slight negative is the stock on the Funko stall of the exclusives. Basically if you don't have a priority ticket, you're very likely to miss out on those. They should have a set amount of stock for each day, not set amount of stock in total.

Improving but still not there yet in areas
It's our biggest comic convention in the UK and always host to an obscene amount of humans in one place. It's layout, content and organisation had improved dramatically since Reedpop took it over, but they are still failing in obvious, repeatedly complained about areas such as the celebrity photo ops, autograph systems, and communication between event and security staff, both still a huge issue as far as attendees and vendors are concerned. Those issues aside, we personally and a great weekend meeting friends and customers, shopping for merch with our daughter and enjoying the sunshine. I can dissect this event for much longer, but this is the gist of it! It's 100% going to be worth every penny when they nail the last problematic issues so that more can enjoy every aspect of the available entertainment. As it stands, I would never buy autograph or photo pops, nor even attempt to get into a talk. Have done previously once, I'll stick to LFCC for that kind of thing!

It was great!! Definitely Recommend it!!
Everything about MCM was great I would definitely recommend anyone interested in TV, Movies, Games, Cosplay, Art, Comics, Culture, Music, Pop Culture, etc. Only thing I was surprised let down was that they weren't really prepared for Critical Role, as to get seating for the panels you would have to show up hours before their panel starts. I think realistically if they bring back Critical Role again, they should rent out a concert hall that can hold more than 3000+ people because their main stage can sit 1000 people and let 500 or so stand and since so many were turned away that would be my only words of advice for MCM, so that they can get all their fans in.

Gets Better but More Expensive Each year
I have been going to McM Comic Con for as long as i know coming up to 10 years now, its always been about the people for me here I meet the best of people at these shows, but this year was special as i got to meet some of my all time favourite artist and writers from the 80's and 90's From Frank Miller to John Romita Jr which was impressive as they don't really come to the UK. Positives More artist and amazing Comic Village Layout is amazing Negatives Pricing has jumped up massively over 3 years There needs to be ticket system when queuing up for artist and writers, this means instead of me standing in a Que for 3 hours that i can go spend more money else where. Other then that I love this show and will always be going and across the country.

Enjoyable whichever capacity you attend
Highly enjoyable event coming from a visitor and creator. This October we received our creator badges for the first time allowing us free entry to continue filming our cosplay videos having paid for regular weekend tickets before. We received them promptly and well in advance of the event! October con was very cold however people were in still in great spirits showing how fantastic the overall atmosphere is. Overall very friendly staff and guests and we hope to continue attending MCM London Comic Con for years to come!
