Comic Con set to draw big crowd

Cosplay fans attend a convention

This weekend sees thousands of comic book aficionados descend on the RDS for the increasingly popular, annual MCM Ireland Comic Con event.

Among the guests on hand to meet and greet attendees, will be Sam J. Jones who played “Flash Gordon” in the 1980’s TV show, the cast of the 1990’s hit series, “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”, and Nell Tiger Free who played Myrcella Baratheon in “Game of Thrones”.

A number of top voice actors from the anime world will be present, as will those famous for their work on video games like “Assassin’s Creed” and “Bioshock”.

Other features include a comic village, cosplay masquerade for those who like dressing up, and even some live wrestling.

So if you live in Ballsbridge and spot Spiderman whizzing past in a Ford Fiesta, don’t be alarmed, he’s probably just late for Comic Con.
