09 Aug MCM Manchester Comic Con 2019
Soo last week Dan and few of The Big Live Drive team were kindly invited down to Manchester Comic Con by event runners MCM for a JAM PACKED event with literally everything your nerdy needs desire. There were too many stalls to count or even get round… trust me the team tried! To say we had big expectations going into this event is an understatement especially after Dan spoke to MCM team member Kahlil on The Big Live Drive prior to the event.
There was a Playstation VR area with a special look at Borderlands 3 but it’s not really a full comic con experience without seeing the amazing cosplayers! Some at this event were literally jaw droppingly awesome from Ironman, Deadpool, Harry Potter, Rick and Morty, Batman, The Joker & Harley Quinn to the entire Game Of Thrones cast (hands down one of, if not THE BEST Davros cosplay we all have ever seen). Even Dan and co (Kevin Bennett, Emma Nolan and Shaun Hughes) joined in as Leon Kennedy, Black Cat and The 7th Doctor respectively. Dan, meanwhile, was Spider Man (or Spider-Dan) for the day.
If you’d never been to a Comic Con in cosplay, we recommend you give it a go at least once as it’s so much fun! It puts a whole different element on the event and there are always cosplay stage’s and cosplay speakers which give the event a truly awesome feel. Example, the Superhero’s vs Villains’ photo shoot organised by the fans attending Comic Con. Now on to the guest’s at this event and who didn’t they have should be the question! There was such a cool panel of guest including Michael Rooker (Known for: Guardians of the Galaxy, The Walking Dead IMDB), Ian McElhinney (Known for: Game of Thrones, Derry Girls, Rogue One IMDB), Samantha Ireland (Known for: RWBY (Nora Valkyrie), CAMP CAMP (The Flower Scouts) and Red Vs Blue) (C.T.), Amelia Rose Blaire (Known for: Detroit Become Human, True Blood IMDB), Troy Baker (Known for: The Last Of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Batman: Arkham Origins IMDB), Nolan North (Known for: Uncharted, Assassins Creed, TMNT IMDB), Bryan Dechart (Known for: Detroit Become Human IMDB) and David Mazouz (Known for: Gotham, Touch IMDB) plus more!
Speaking of the awesome David Mazouz… Dan, Emma Kev and Shaun were a part of the lucky few people that got to ask him few questions after he spent the afternoon getting pictures with his hundreds of fans. Check out the interview above on the KCC Live YouTube Channel!
Overall this was an amazing Comic Con and WE CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT MCM EVENT!
