The Wharf - - Front Page -

Thou­sands of pop cul­ture fans de­scended on Ex­cel at the week­end for MCM Comic Con Lon­don.

And the cos­play­ers were out in force again, bring­ing fan­tasy char­ac­ters to life, tempted by con­tests on all three days.

High­lights of the geek-fest in­cluded a recre­ation of Ae­gon The Con­queror’s Iron Throne from Game Of Thrones and ex­clu­sive footage from Stranger Things

2 in­tro­duced via video by star Mil­lie Bobby Brown. Special guests such as War­wick Davis, Hay­ley Atwell and An­thony Mackie were also on hand to meet fans and sign au­to­graphs.

MCM Comic Con will re­turn to Lon­don in 2018 al­though dates are yet to be con­firmed.
