My 1st comic con and it was a very good experience definitely would be going to the next one - Lewis Mundle

I had an AMAZING time at Comic Con #LoveForever - Jay Wheeler

 

 Considering that this was the first time this event had run, and that the organisers had such a short space of time to organise it, I was really impressed! As with all new events there were a few kinks, but no doubt these will be addressed so that the event can be even better next time c: Monopoly had really big shoes to fill, but they did a great job. - Louise Bee

Never been before but loved it! So did my little boy who loved getting gis pics taken with everything from star wars to Deadpool ace. - Ritchie Claxton

My whole family went along. Every single one of us had the most ridiculous smiles on our faces all day long. Met Dirk Benedict (what an entertainer, and what a pro!).
Can’t wait for next year!  - Stacey Collister

Had 2 great days enjoyed every minute of my weekend. I will be back again next year. - Shaun Doyle

Superb day with my children (aged 8 and 9) our first ever Comicon and will definitely come back...loved it! - Bull Chadwick

Loved it, 5⭐️. The retro gaming area was brilliant, great stalls (just needed a bit more room down that end) and great live interviews - definitely better than last year - Karen Shortail

To put something like this together with limited time after the cancellation by MCM. I'm very impressed. There was a good mix of things to do and as far as indie conventions go in the UK, this is one of the bigger and better ones - Rhys Jones

What can I say? It was brilliant start to finish I know a lot of people will compare it to mcm but I don't think that's fair as this was on a different level all together (monopoly is premier league, mcm maybe middle of the table championship league?), by the fans for the fans! The layout was brilliant. as a Cosplayer it was great to have the space around all the bigger props to have photos with people. At one point me and the other power ranger cosplayers were posing for a good 20 minutes for loads of people by the tie fighter it was great. The location of the stage was great as it was central so that everyone could see what was going on, and the announcements were brilliant, always knowing what was going on! Finally the guests, what a brilliant selection of people, if only I had more money but thank you for choosing a power ranger outside of mmpr its something you don't see enough in the UK and from the ranger cosplayers there, my self included, you can see there are loads of season to choose from so I look forward to next year and hopefully getting some more to Liverpool! - Colin Richards

Superbly organised event given the time you had to organise it. Some very good sellers with some great things to buy although some were overpriced. Arcade area was a fantastic idea and great for filling in time between activities/talks etc. Guests were amazing as were the many professional cosplayers. The q&a sessions were brilliantly organised & fun. The enthusiasm & energy of the person on the stage (Laura I think!) was fantastic & kept the audience interested. - Paul Smith

I've been going to the Liverpool comicon for the last three years. For the first two years MCM handled it. and while I thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 and 17 cons, and the stalls and cosplay where amazing, they were at times uncomfortably tightly packed and rather repetitive. This year, with MCM backing out I believe the event runners have genuinely put the heart back into the event. Guests where one big surprise after another and a pleasure to meet and listen too, the layout and inclusion of more models and a games section was fantastic and this year's 2018 con has been my favourite one thus far, by far. - Alex Monkhouse 

My first Comic Con experience and I must say I'm hooked. I'll be coming again for sure - Matthew Blundell

We brought a group of twelve adults with severe learning difficulties to the event; I'd been to many before but for all of them this was their first experience of a comicon; they all loved it; the displays were great, it was accessible, a wonderful atmosphere and accommodating and helpful staff, brilliant, thank you very much! - John Roberts 

Great. Hoping it will be an annual event. Hope more next year too!! - Shane Byrne

A very good event if only organised in a short time. The stalls needed more space between them to move through as it was always crowded. Plenty of space to expand into though, hopefully it will get bigger and better. - Dave Smith



 

Was Such an Amazing day. My son's and l had fun, meeting Manu and Edge. And of course spent ALOT of money. Can't wait to come back next year. ���� - Kenneth Warren

Had an awesome time at LCC today. Well organised, well laid out and a fantastic atmosphere. To say this has been pulled together at short notice is more than impressive. I understand the Saturday was busier than the Sunday, but that suited us just fine. - Chris CeeCee Collins 

I really enjoyed it. Staff were very friendly and polite. Best con I’ve been to. Will definitely go again! A big thank you to the person who answered my queries through Facebook messenger and a big thank you to the staff member who was with Manu Bennett who saw that I was struggling with shyness and mentioned to him that I wanted to say hello. Really appreciated that. - Debra Fearn

For a con that was put together at short notice it was an amazing event. Really enjoyed how spacious it was. And for the people complaining about the cost of autographs and photos I advise you to look at events like walker stalker and London film and comicon to see how cheap this con really was. - Katy Young 

My first time coming to Liverpool fantastic day out. Really pleased you brought a power ranger to Liverpool comic con please bring more next year please. - George Long

We had a great day today! The event was very well organised and everything went very smoothly! Great line up of guests, and we enjoyed our photo opportunities with Lou Ferrigno, Dirk Benedict and Paul McGann! It was a great atmosphere with all the various Cosplayers! Loads of photos taken of all the great characters, and with great displays and exhibitors it was a day to remember! - Ian Jones 

Absolutely amazing comic con...it was better than the past two years with MCM. I really hope that it becomes an annual event. The guests, props and set up was incredible. There was even something for the kids to do as well which I thought was great. Well done Monopoly Events. - Steven McVeigh 

 

Excellent experience having the opportunity to meet some more of my favourite stars. It was an extra special honour to meet the late Verne Troyer who tragically passed away last weekend. It was the 1st time that I met Paul McGann. I met him again last weekend where he signed a special promo poster photo for Liverpool Comic Con which was given to me by Jorgito Vargas Jr from Power Rangers Ninja Storm. Meeting a Power Ranger was also an experience as I'm a long-time fan. I met Amy Jo Johnson (who played Kimberly Hart/Pink Ranger #1 in Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers-hint, hint Liverpool Comic Con) last weekend.

The queue system was a vast improvement from the For The Love Of Sci-Fi event in Manchester. Both pre-booked tickets and cash payments had their own queue which made it easier to co-ordinate who got seen by the guests and when. The improvement in the queue system meant that I was able to obtain all of my photo opps which was an added bonus to my experience of being there.

Some of the guests were more than happy to sign my own items which I took along (blu-ray box sets which were signed by Manu Bennett, Dirk Benedict and Lou Ferrigno). Also, I took my For The Love Of Sci-Fi poster and programme to be signed by Joonas Suatamo and Jeremy Bulloch.

Overall, I would definitely recommend Liverpool Comic to any of my friends who wanted to meet their favourite stars at this event. Thank you very much for a brilliant event and I will definitely be attending next year's event. - Paul Stokes

What a great day. Amazing venue and event. Well organised. Great guests and brilliant Staff. Amazing day. Still Photography.  - Robert Ryan

Well done to everyone involved, we have been amazed at what a great show have been organized in such a limited time with limited budget.
The whole family had a fun, there was more to do for children then in last year MCM event
Of course it would be great to see more local an independent comic artists in future years.
Small food stalls were actually surprisingly good idea. It added some much needed varieties to otherwise boring and overpriced food available at the convention center.

As always Liverpool have outdone itself - Marie Worthington Měsíčková

Kicks the ass out of anything MCM have ever done, Monopoly Events rock!!! - Sean Lever 

1st of all, I think the Liverpool Exhibition Centre a nice venue for Cons on a great location & I was glad to see yesterday, staff was friendly & pro too.
Now about the community, elder & younger Cosplayers are both was awesome, it was nice to meet you with everyone there!^ Also some Cosplay was really cool, just mind-blowing, soooo awesome! :) I really grateful, when I can meet Cosplayers who put so much effort to make their best costume & make-up. It's feels like your favourite characters from video games, movies, comics, etc. comes into real life! :) The pro cosplayers had a colourful palette of epic characters to play, such as: Predator, Green Goblin (from Spidey/MARVEL), a freaking cool Uruk-Hai & a Witch-king of Angmar (LOTR), Judge Dredd, Mad Max & I could easily write more, a pretty long list about how many cool & epic cosplay I was lucky too see there yesterday, all DC & MARVEL comics inspired cosplay was pretty decent too! :) Hope I can see all of you there next year too!^
Kind regards, James Howlett (LOGAN / W.)


Its become very big now because people are allowed to dress as what ever they want and show off what they like and be a part of the most amazing event every made and people have good fun at comic con and to get to know eachother and thats why i love going. - Aimee Thomas


Brilliantly organised, queue up times were super quick (30 mins to get in the venue, 10 mins to meet Edge), plenty of games to play on, merchandise area slightly cramped but still easy to get round. Cannot wait for next year - Stephen Dever


Me and my son had a great time. Was really cool to meet Lou Ferrigno. Loved the stalls, ended up spending a small fortune on mystery boxes and other collectables haha! Will be back next year for sure! Thank you ��� - Kieron Carson
