Manchester Comics and Reading (MCR) Festival

Manchester Comics FestivalWe are proud to announce the first Manchester Comics and Reading (MCR) Festival at Central Library!

This is a triple event special. That’s right, three in one day. We have a traditional comic event, an anime / manga showcase and a cosplay event all rolled into one day and venue, but in three very distinct zones. Meet creators, join us for seminars, enjoy our comic trade and celebrate your fandom.

More information to come in the upcoming weeks. If any creators or traders would like to join us for the event please message the event page here.

The team that bought you the Oldham Comic Con are also bringing an amazing range of guest illustrators and writers to the Manchester. Guests already announced include Nick Brokenshire, Ian Richardson and Al Ewing.
