MyM Issue 27 featuring Blue Exorcist: The Movie is out now!

Issue 27 of MyM, the official magazine of MCM Expo Group, is out now! 

So, you wanna be famous? You never know, maybe you already are. If you were among the 101,600 people who marched through the doors of the London Comic Con in May, we may have already raised your profile a little. Find out if we snapped you and your awesome cosplay and gave you the exposure you deserve on pages 16 and 17.

Didn’t make it in there? Don’t be outraged, just grab this copy of MyM, extend your arm, click the shutter button on your camera phone and send us a selfie to impress. If we print your image in an upcoming issue, you’ll be walking away with a cute collection of plushies courtesy of CutesyKink. Find out more about our fashionista Twitter competition on page 39.

If you fancy stepping the fame thing up even further, we’ve got some great news for you on page eight. The BBC is looking for cosplayers with original character designs to be in an episode of a sitcom. Meanwhile, a donation of $10 to a very worthy charity could see you visiting the set, meeting the cast and even getting a walk-on part in Star Wars VII!

Just remember your friends at MyM when it all goes VIP. We’re used to chinwagging with the stars, as our exclusive interviews with the biggest names in the business prove every month. See you on the red carpet…

MyM 27 cover Blue Exorcist The Movie


Blue Exorcist: The Movie’s director Atsushi Takahashi was at MCM London Comic Con last month; we talked with him about the film, the anime industry and being Hayao Miyazaki’s disciple.

MCM London Comic Con broke records when more than 101,000 people came to play in May. We speak to the best of the talent and also capture our favourite cosplayers at London’s ExCel. Did you make our selection?

Titan Comics is taking the Time Lord’s printed adventures in a whole new direction. MyM talks exclusively to Doctor Who comic editor Andrew James and head of Titan Comics Steve White to find out what the Tenth (David Tennant), Eleventh (Matt Smith) and Twelfth (Peter Capaldi) Doctors have in store.

With Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero maestro Gen Urobuchi in charge, the latest Kamen Rider show promises nihilistic themes, tragic plot twists… and fruit?

The South Korean group have conquered Asia and were named alongside David Bowie in Time Magazine’s 2013 list of top music. MyM looks at the best band you’ve never heard of…

Tiger And Bunny: The Rising helmer Yoshitomo Yonetani was in London last month for the movie’s European premiere. MyM chatted exclusively to him about his life in anime.

Hiccup and Toothless are back for another high-flying adventure, as the Viking villagers of Berk face a new wave of dragons. Director Dean DeBlois explains how he’s come a long way from animating racoons.

Edgar Wright leaves Ant-Man, the Attack On Titan anime finally gets release details, Marvel and DC characters play happily together and the Thai Ministry of Culture brings Khon: The Masked Play to London.

Our man on Planet Japan discusses interstellar Pocari Sweat, picks out a frontrunner in the AKB48 elections and reveals the best sights and tastes to be found on a trip to the port city of Chiba.

We trawl the MCM London Comic Con to find the best merchandise available to mankind, including transport worthy of a Thundercat and a piece of Dragon Ball Z history. Plus, the best of the rest this month includes an immersive Godzilla art book and an action figure that looks an awful lot like you.

Granny Gertrude checks out the winners of MCM London Comic Con’s Saturday Masquerade, while Katharine Byrne chats to Canada’s Roxane Daneault about creating one of gaming’s long lost heroines.

One of MyM fashion correspondent Saoirse Clohessy’s recent photo shoots took her to the new CutesyKink J-fashion store, where she fell in love with the kawaii clothes (and kittens) on display.

It’s been an interesting few weeks for gaming, and we’ve been extra busy keeping all our little friends happy in the quirky Tomodachi Life, hacking the city in Watch Dogs, perfecting our drifts in Mario Kart 8 and freaking ourselves out with an early demo of Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within. Oh, and we made some magical battle babies in Conception II, bent time in Super Time Force, did some truly evil hacking and slashing in Drakengard 3 and even played some sports with our Sportsfriends.

Tiger And Bunny: The Rising, Accel World, Aesthetica Of A Rogue Hero, Outlaw Star and the Girls Und Panzer OVAs are among the titles that fall under our critical gaze this month, as does a compact new book by Helen McCarthy. We also introduce a new regular series covering streaming anime.

We’re all about the extras this month, as we pair our review of Maleficent with a chat with Angelina Jolie, our T.S. Spivet rating with some words from its director and compare Edge Of Tomorrow with its source novel All You Need Is Kill. That still leaves plenty of action (X-Men: Days Of Future Past, Non-Stop), thrills (Cold In July) and scares (The Beast Within, Grace Of Monaco – trust us, that second one is horrific).
