Adventure 10 (and 11): MCM London Comic Con

#JOESLONDONBUCKETLIST: 30 Adventures Before 30

I’m Joe – and I’ve challenged myself to complete 30 of the 50 activities in my book The London Bucket List before my 30th birthday. The challenge was set exactly 30 weeks before my birthday on 1 October. You can read about all of the activities I’ve completed so far here. You can download an electronic version of The London Bucket List at the bottom of this post – or buy the paperback here.


MCM Comic Con is a convention celebrating the best of anime, manga, sci-fi, video games and cosplay. Taking place at the ExCel Centre, it’s the ultimate celebration of pop culture in the UK.

There’s a ton of presentations to see, merchandise to buy, and celebrities to meet.

The pick of this year’s bunch were Verne Troyer (who played Mini-Me in Austin Powers) and the original cast of the Power Rangers.

How was it?

It’s an awesome experience just to see all the effort everyone puts into their cosplay.

My buddy Radoslav put together this awesome montage of the best costumes we saw.

Is it a good date idea?

I don’t see why not…If you both love anime, comic books, video games etc, you’ll be in your element.

Even if you have more mainstream hobbies, there’s still plenty to keep you entertained.

Just don’t get caught leering Sailor Moons or Harley Quinns….
