Opening the convention season of 2018, MCM Birmingham Comic Con will bring an action-packed weekend of pop culture to the NEC, when it returns to the West Midlands on 17-18 March. Featuring everything from comics, movies, games and sci-fi to cosplay, anime and steampunk.
Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy) has been announced as meeting fans over the weekend. Despite his aggressive roles, Rooker is by all accounts a thoroughly nice chap. Also appearing will Brianna Hildebrand, who plays the awesomely-named Negasonic Teenage Warhead in Deadpool. Finally, Mark Sheppard who has starred in Supernatural, Firefly and Battlestar Galactica, will be taking the time to meet his fans.
For videogame fans, MCM is bringing glory and victory to Birmingham with four of Overwatch’s heroes in the form of Anjali Bhimani, Jonny Cruz, Carolina Ravassa and Fred Tatasciore.
During the blockbuster weekend, fans can meet special guests from the world of TV and film, voice actors and more, explore the Comic Village packed with artists, writers and graphic novelists, watch on-stage panels, play the latest games and check out the awesome costumes from the world of Cosplay.
