From Arrow’s Manu Bennett teaching members of the audience the traditional war cry Haka on stage, to Stormtroopers breakdancing on the show floor, this year’s MCM Northern Ireland Comic Con proved to be a weekend full of surprises.
Over 13,700 sci-fi fans, gamers, comic collectors, movie buffs and anime enthusiasts blasted through the doors of the Eikon Exhibition Centre, Lisburn on 24-25 June for the pop culture fest.
“What a fantastic weekend of superheroes, celebrities, comics, families and all manners of pop culture fandom,” said Danny Aindow, national event manager of MCM Expo Group.
“The crowd over the weekend really embraced the show; fans fulfilled their dreams of meeting their favourite actors, cosplayers displayed incredible costumes and wore their passions proudly. We look forward to returning next year in an even bigger way, thanks for having us Northern Ireland!”
The Northern Ireland Comic Con returned for a pop-culture weekend with an exciting line-up of guests who took the show by storm with their gripping stories and anecdotes, which had the theatre aisles bursting with fans.
