"It's great to be bringing the MCM Ireland Comic Con to my hometown," said event co-organiser Bryan Cooney. "A lot of fans have been asking us when we were going to do a Dublin show, so we decided it was high time to take the MCM brand across the Irish Sea."
It all takes place on April 12th and 13th so mark in your calendars now. To get your mitts on some tickets just head to their website,mcmcomiccon.com
