I remember once thinking that European shows like Angloeme, Lucca and Barcelona could teach British comic book conventions a thing or two. But it seems the traffic is travelling in the opposite direction.
MCM, Britain's largest and most popular comic book convention organisers by far, are spreading their wings to mainland Europe with MCM-branded shows in Germany and Belgium this summer, with MCM Hannover Comic Con coming to Hannover Messe on 4-5th June and MCM Belgium Comic Con taking place at Brussels Expo on 11-12th June.
Bob Layton of Iron Man and X-O Manowar fame will be attending press conferences to unveil both new show in Brussels in two days time and in Hannover the day after.
