Press release as follows:

Over 130,000 visitors attend MCM London Comic Con; Summer Glau announced for May 2017 show

More than 131,000 visitors made the trip to Excel London last weekend for MCM London Comic Con, the UK’s biggest and best celebration of modern pop culture. In total, 131,308 fans of film, sci-fi, gaming, anime, manga, online video, comic books and cosplay came along to the three-day extravaganza – slightly up on the 130,560 figure for October 2015’s show, which already positioned the London event as the third largest comic con in the world.

Meanwhile, show organisers have announced that sci-fi star Summer Glau is to be one of the special guests when MCM London Comic Con returns in May. Best known for playing River Tam in Joss Whedon's Firefly and follow-up movie Serenity, and Cameron in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Saturn Award-winning Summer has also appeared in series such as Angel, Dollhouse, Arrow, Grey's Anatomy, The 4400 and The Big Bang Theory.

Special guests at last weekend’s Comic Con included stars from brand new Doctor Who spin-off Class; the second series of hit sci-fi show Humans; Hooten And The Lady leads Michael Landes and Ophelia Lovibond; and UK rapper Akala, there with a world exclusive reading of his new graphic novel.

Other guests meeting fans at Comic Con included The Flash’s Violett Beane; Agent Carter’s Enver Gjokaj; Battlestar Galactica’s Jamie Bamber; Star Wars’ Warwick Davis; Rooster Teeth founder Geoff Ramsey; Adventure Time head writer Kent Osborne; videogame legend Suda51; Artemis Fowl author Eoin Colfer, and anime aces Takeshi Honda and Naoyoshi Shiotani, not to mention a host of hyper-talented YouTubers, comic artists, writers and voice actors.

Events at the show ranged from the UK Premiere of The Hurt Business and Japanese fashion shows to eSports competitions and the Eurocosplay finals.

MCM London Comic Con returns on 26-28 May 2017
