MCM Comic Con


Unleash your inner nerd at the RDS this weekend at Ireland’s first MCM Comic Con!

The family friendly event will feature guests from the worlds of sci-fi and comic book fandom, including actors Danny John-Jules and Hattie Hayridge (Cat and Holly from the cult classic sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf), Warwick Davis (Willow, the Harry Potter films) and Colin Ferguson (Haven, A Town Called Eureka), comic book artists Simon Bisley (ABC Warriors) and Glenn Fabry (Preacher), and anime voice actors Bryce Papenbrook (Attack on Titan) and Maile Flanagan (Naruto).

The convention will also hold a Robot Wars battle, with robots from the BBC series fighting it out in a purpose-made arena, and for those who prefer to get into the action themselves, there will be a Dance Dance Revolution platform and a retro gaming arcade. Amongst other attractions, plenty of dealer stalls will feature at the event for you to splash out on a vast array of media merchandise.

MCM Comic Con Ireland will be happening on Saturday April 12th from 9.30am to 6pm, and Sunday April 13th from 10am until 5pm. Entry for adults (15 years and over) costs €12.00, children (11 to 14 years) €8.00, and under 10s go free. Further details, including information about priority tickets, can be found at
