Comic Con Liverpool welcomed 25,000 guests during their third and biggest annual event yet.

Numerous types of tickets were sold out, attendees hoping to catch a glimpse of the star-spangled line-up that included Lord of The Rings’ Elijah Wood, Stranger Things’ David Harbour, and Flash Gordon’s Brian Blessed.

Fans were able to get items signed by and take selfies with their favourite stars, and professional photo opportunities were also available.

Iconic sets from film and TV were made especially for the convention, including Bilbo’s Hobbit Hole and retro Del Boy’s living room from Only Fools and Horses.

Over the weekend, guests were dressed up in magnificent costumes of characters, many taking hours to perfect theirs. My personal favourite being Leshen from the Witcher game series.

The number of stalls was astounding, as someone who has attended the con since its first in 2018, it was easy to see how much it had exploded into a major event. With more artists, merchandise, comics and games; it really ticked all the boxes.

Panels with a number of celeb guests gave fans a chance to ask any must-know questions to their favourite star, unless you’re a Brian Blessed fan, he spoke for so long he only had a chance to answer one fan question!

David Harbour commented on the friendliness of Liverpudlians during his Q&A, and said that he was enjoying his time in the city, and at the convention.

Monopoly Events, who run Comic Con Liverpool have signed a contract with the Exhibition Centre to hold the convention there for the next ten years, anticipating that next years will be even larger.

Dates for next years Comic Con have been confirmed to be 6-7 March, with tickets on sale at comicconventionliverpool.co.uk

Stay tuned for a more in depth look at David Harbour’s panel and interviews with artists!
