MCM Comic Con, the umbrella covering a number of regional pop culture conventions across the United Kingdom, has today shared the unfortunate “exciting new developments” that their events in Liverpool, Northern Ireland and Telford have been discontinued. In response, MCM has committed themselves to an increased focus on expanding their continuing events in Birmingham, Glasgow, London and Manchester.

Oh well. I had a great time at Liverpool this year (and gave AL a lot of my money), but I'm not interested enough to spend the extra money and effort going to Manchester.

It was nice to have something like this in Liverpool at least.

There was an MCM in Telford?

Can we have one on Teesside? We've got like four times the population of Telford.
Telford has excellent transport links for the Midlands, it's not as weird as you'd think. (Or at least it wouldn't be if not for the other nearby MCMs)

This is bad news.I see can people haveing to pay separately to meet guests and Q&a sessions which does happen at comic con in the usa.so it's going to end up being for people have a lot money and not for the real fans.
