The ATLAS team are live from the NEC, Birmingham for Day 1 of the MCM Comic Con, the last MCM event of 2018. The team are here all day today, so keep an eye here and on our twitter for all the latest updates.
MCM Comic Con is the leading pop culture event organiser in the UK within ReedPOP, dedicated to producing experiential fan events and bringing together a creative scope of popular culture. The MCM portfolio includes MCM London Comic Con, MCM Birmingham Comic Con, MCM Manchester Comic Con and MCM Scotland Comic Con.
Update 14:00 - We've grabbed lunch and had a look in the Coca Cola sensorium which is an interesting experience, if not a bit short given the length of time it takes to queue to get in.
We've spent a lot of time looking around the event and getting to see the various stands, there seems to be a lot less gaming type themed stands and a lot more shop stands compared to MCM London last month.
Update 11:45 - We've arrived here at the NEC and have had a good look around the event. The event feels quite a bit larger than previous birmingham events, and there is a wide mix of stalls ranging from gaming to comics to shops. We're going to head back out and have an explore, so keep an eye here.
