    Ian Bonar, organiser of BGCP Comic Con, said: “We had a great tester event in April and had an amazing turn out.

    “We’ve managed to secure a Batmobile as seen in the 1989 Batman movie - which is seen as the best Batman movie, with the best Batmobile - so we’re excited to have it in Glasgow.

    “We’ll also have Batman there with the vehicle and we’ve had our own full scale Batsignal created just for the occasion.

    “We’ll also have our 7ft tall Bumblebee, which is a head turner, and a fully realistic Iron Man for people to meet, as well as all sorts of Star Wars characters, Ghostbusters and other various props to go along with all our comic con traders spread throughout the full centre.”

    St Enoch Comic Con takes place at St Enoch Centre on Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 6pm.
