You’re no doubt used to us discussing and promoting an Anime Guest of Honour at MCM’s London Comic Cons, but today we have a slightly different announcement for you, as we can confirm that MCM are bringing their first-ever Anime Guest of Honour to MCM Birmingham Comic Con this November!
The guest for this event is the director and writer of Netflix series HERO MASK, Mr. Hiroyasu Aoki! Before we dig into the details, let’s talk a little more about the guest and the series he’s responsible for.
ABOUT HERO MASK
Synopsis: After a rash of mysterious deaths, Crown prosecutor Sarah Sinclair and SSC agent James Blood discover a conspiracy surrounding uncanny new bio-masks.
