Comic Con Manchester TV and film fans are in for an absolute treat! 

The next Comic Con Manchester in the summer of 2022 is gearing itself up to be an absolute belter! Geeks and Film nuts have got a Parklife sized fest just them coming to Bowlers Exhibition Centre by Old Trafford Manchester. Trekkies will be happy as Zachary Quinto aka Spoc will be chatting on panels and signing autographs. Teen Wolf os also represented with Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Shelley Hennig, Dylan Sprayberry, and Linden Ashby and The new Netflix Cobra Kai has brought the whole Dojo with stars Martin Kove, Jesse Kove, Ron Thomas, and Tony O’Dell.

I’m a huge comic con fan, always have been but just like people don’t go to festivals for the music line, Cons are pretty similar. For me its all about the absolutely bonkers cosplay that people are kitted out in. Like full blown geek Halloween! What’s not to love! My aim is always get as many selfies with Stormtrooper as possible. And speaking of Star Wars, there is an after party that’s take place in a replica of the Cantina the ‘hive of scum and villainy’ complete with alcoholic blue milk.   

Previous Comic con have featured guest Steve Guttenberg heading up a Police Academy reunion with Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook, and Marion Ramsey. Plus ‘Baywatch babes’ in the form of Erika Eleniak, Angelica Bridges, and Brande Roderick. My personal favourite was Gremlins Zach Galligan with the animatronic Gizmo!

If props are you thing you can check out Knight rider’s K.I.T.T, Dr’s Who’s blue box and Star Wars replicas too. And let us not forget the place to burn your bank card the epic Traders Hall as well! Its like Affleck Palace but ten times the size, my previous purchases have included a mini Little Shop of Horror Audrey 2 and Ewock handbag. This year I think I’ll be needing a Stranger Things Hellfire club Tee…… 

Whatever your franchise I’d bet there’s something there for you it’s a genuinely unique day out in Manchester with some of the nicest and craziest bunch you are ever likely to meet.
