Last weekend MCM Comic Con hosted thousands of cosplayers, comic book fans, gamers and alike at one of the first Con’s of the year in the UK. The event was held in London over the bank holiday weekend (25th-27th May) and saw many geektastic exhibitors ready to show off their latest products, host competitions and interact with their customers.
Amongst these exhibitors was DC Comics, who brought the DC Boutique to the UK for the very first time. Alongside this and their fantastic stand, they also brought a DC themed BBQ Van which gave out burgers and hot dogs to attendees for free! The burger van looked like great fun, and I feel it was such a great idea and way of getting the DC brand out there for those that may not have initially been interested. Check out the images from event from the DC Comics Facebook page;
But what we did not realise, is that this wasn’t just exclusive burgers and hot dogs for MCM Comic Con. It was leading towards the launch of DC’s official Justice League burgers and hot dogs, which will be available to the public in the UK. What a great idea and it’s great to see the UK getting some love! DC Comics announced the new products via Facebook, and we can expect to see them in ASDA stores across the UK from 11th June 2018.
There have been no announcements on price range or whether they will be in selected stores only…but they will be Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman shaped. I cannot wait to try them for myself!
