Lindsey Jordan, Stage Host at York Unleashed Comic-Con said: “Well, it’s York Unleashed, isn’t it. This is the comic-con event of the year that everyone looks forward to. 

"I must admit I am more than a little bit geeky and, even though I have been attending comic-cons for years, this event is by far my favourite comic-con. It has such an amazing atmosphere, everyone is there for a shared interest and to have a good time.

"I’m extremely excited about meeting actor Lee Boardman as this is his first ever comic-con appearance, Lee recently appeared in Star Wars Andor but a lot of people will know him as the bad guy Jez Quigley in Coronation Street.

"Come along and see what York Unleashed is all about – meet the celebrities, have your photo taken with your favourite Superhero, browse the smorgasbord of stalls with a vast selection of geeky goodies, dance with your anime friends, and it doesn’t even matter if you come along dressed as your favourite character or simply wear your favourite geeky t-shirt you are going to have an incredible time.”
