With September now almost over, it is truly shocking how fast the year is coming to a close. Before the year is out, however, there’s still plenty to look forward to, with the coming month heralding one particularly big event: MCM London Comic Con October 2014!

As we all know, with big events come big guests, and to whet the appetites of potential attendees, several of these have already been announced. Below is a selection of those revealed so far, but remember: there are still plenty more to be confirmed, so don’t forget to check back for further updates!

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Four characters from the famed, original Power Rangers series will be making an appearance at MCM London Comic Con this October. Austin St. John, Walter Jones, Karan Ashley and David Yost will all be at the convention on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday and are expected to participate in a discussion panel.

Shinichiro Watanabe

One of the key parts of any MCM Comic Con is the Japanese culture section. Shinichiro Watanabe is an anime legend and director who has brought us such gems as Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. He has also directed episodes of various TV shows including Space Dandy, Kids on the Slope and The Animatrix. While this won’t be Watanabe’s first appearance at an MCM Comic Convention, this is nevertheless an amazing guest announcement, offering regular con-goers a chance to see him again, as well as giving those who missed him the first time round an opportunity to hear what he has to say. Shinichiro Watanabe will be at the London convention on both Saturday and Sunday.

Vic will be in attendance on the Saturday and Sunday.

Laura Bailey

With a whopping 268 credits to her name, it seems safe enough to say that Laura Bailey is pretty darn good at her job.
