MCM’s London Comic Con is the biggest convention on the UK calendar. We’ve been exhibiting regularly since 2015 and love to see the range of cosplayers that head down to the Excel Centre. Here’s a look at some of our favourites.
Ahead of the October launch of Super Mario Odyssey, I was given the opportunity to play the game at Nintendo HQ. Everyone who attended the event was given a copy of the game too. It’s one I’ve been playing with open wide-eyed wonder since.
The London Comic Con is our biggest convention here in the UK and we’re excited for the opportunity to meet fans of our work and introduce new people to the mayamada universe!
Conventions are a great opportunity for any comic creator to get feedback on their comics from the people who invest in them. It gives people a chance to see those who actually make the comics that they enjoy and we’re looking forward to taking part!
Ryan Coogler and the cast of Black Panther are taking no prisoners. That much was evident when they released an excellent teaser trailer backed by a great Run The Jewels track. Any doubt was dashed with the even more impressive trailer that showcased the stunning Wakandan landscape and acrobatic fight scenes.
The E3 Expo is the biggest week in the gaming calendar. So this week feels like the right time for us to launch our biggest GamePad project we’ve ever taken on: a Kickstarter for social gaming.
What is London Games Festival?
If you’ve never heard of London Games Festival (LGF), we’ll forgive you, and consider this your club initiation. LGF is now in its 2nd year and backed by the none other than the Mayor of London. Sadiq Khan is into games? It sure looks like it!
It’s a massive festival spanning 11 days and over 40 events. That’s a lot to take in so here comes mayamada with our top 5 reasons you absolutely must attend this year:
The start of 2017 has seen us start work on a new manga, our first in collaboration with another organisation. This is a totally new venture for us, and we’re excited to take on the challenge!
It’s that time of the year when we look back at the highlights of the past 12 months. For us at mayamada, the GamePad Christmas event was the top of that list. A big thanks goes to the team who supported us and everyone came down to made it an amazing day! Don’t worry if you missed out, check out our recap and join us again in spring 2017.
This year our #BeCreative campaign continued with a really fun photoshoot with creative people from all walks of life. But it’s probably not going to surprise anyone who follows mayamada that cosplayers are one of our favourite groups to speak too!
Back in 2015, we released issue 1 of our story about a young Rabbit named Blake and his big ambitions of becoming a success in the big city known as The Jungle. A year on and we’re almost ready for the launch of the complete volume!
