Around 2,000 people visited the fourth edition of Northampton Comic-Con prompting organisers to consider increasing the size of next year’s venue.

Jonathan Gould, who is part of the organising team confirmed Comic-Con would return to Northampton next year.

“We had a very good turn out, just under 2,000 throughout the day,” he said.
