MCM London, May 2016

Team Footloose has been going to MCM London for many years now, but this May’s convention was, no lie, our best ever. Exhausting, busy, disorientating, but so much fun. We talked to loads of interesting people, quite a few of whom had already heard of the comic – and, after a very dodgy-sales 2015, we sold a heck of a lot of books, which is always a brilliant feeling.

I didn’t get much of a chance to take photos, but here’s a selection:

There were some amazing costumes this year, including my fave Kamala Khan/Ms Marvel…

MCM London seems to get bigger and busier every year. This is actually one of the much, much quieter portions:

Of course, no matter how well a con is going, there’s always that point towards the end of it where your brain decides that everything is too much and it’s going to take a brief holiday, and during this time, I discovered the creepiest goddamn jelly baby I’ve ever seen:

The photo isn’t clear, but it had the face of a golem…

…AND IT WAS HOLLOW

Despite horrifying jelly babies, MCM London May was great, and I can’t wait to go back again in October!
