Comic Con Liverpool is the largest comic con that Monopoly Events is responsible for organising and it is by far the most successful to date. Back in early 2018, Liverpool was crying out for a comic con after the previous event organisers pulled out. We leaped at the chance to help out and we have never looked back, March 2019 saw our second year of Comic Con Liverpool with an attendance of over 20,000 people across the weekend, and we are only getting bigger and better!
Guests to conventions are often exclusive names to our shows, many of our guests have never before appeared at a UK convention before and this is something we feel is very special that sets us apart from other conventions. Past Comic Con Liverpool guests included Lois and Clark themselves, Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain, Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno, Twilight's Peter Facinelli, Mr. Hollywood, Eric Roberts, Uncle Paulie from Rocky, Burt Young, Adam Baldwin and Sean Maher from Fox's short-lived, yet beloved Firefly, The A-Team's Dirk Benedict no less than FOURTEEN Power Rangers in one go and many, many more.

Our guest line up was phenomenal and included Elijah Wood, David Harbour, Lori Petty, Melissa Joan Hart, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Sam J Jones, Brian Blessed, Chris Klein, Chris Owen, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Peter Cullen, Frank Welker and many more!
