Last weekend's MCM London Comic Con enjoyed the highest attendance ever recorded in the convention's history.

The event passed the 100,000 visitor mark for the first time, with 101,600 fans attending the event between May 23rd and May 25th.

This smashed October 2013's attendance of 88,000 people and May 2013's 70,000 visitors.

"This has been the most successful MCM London Comic Con on record - in fact, the largest event of its kind ever held in the UK," said show co-organiser Bryan Cooney.

"The soaring attendance not only reflects a growing worldwide interest in comic cons and the ever-expanding range of attractions and activities at our show, but also the strength of the community that has built up around it over the years.

"Whether you're into sci-fi, comics, videogames, movies, manga, anime, J-fashion or cosplay, the twice-yearly MCM London Comic Con has become the place to meet up with like-minded friends and make new ones."

Show co-organiser Paul Miley added: "MCM London Comic Con keeps going from strength-to-strength.

"As well as featuring a great special guest line-up and a host of top comic book creators, games publishers, film studios, anime distributors and retailers, this latest show saw us respond to public demand by expanding our online video, eSports and Asian culture offerings. And when we return in October, the show will be even bigger and better."

The next MCM London Comic Con takes place at Excel London from October 24th to 26th 2014.
