The Middle East Film & Comic Con officialy starts tomorrow. Have we mentioned how excited we are?
Ah ok, so we have. A couple of times already. Still, it doesn't make it any less true. Plus we have a pretty good right to be seeing as, for the third year running, Stuff is not only the official magazine of Comic Con, but we have really pulled out all the stops this year to make our presence the biggest it's ever been.
The doors of the Dubai World Trade Centre are poised to fly open at 2pm sharp on 7 April, and will be entertaining legions of pop-culture aficionados until they slam shut in the evening of 9 April. We'll be there in full force with a dedicated Stuff stand - here's a little taste of what we have in store.
Do your homework
Hold on to your spandex, before you rush into the con unprepared and get yourself lost, you'd be smart to pick up the latest issue of Stuff which not only has a massive feature on all things comic book-related but also serves as a guide to this year's Middle East Film & Comic Con.
Complete with the low down on which international guests you should be lining up to see, which artists you should be pestering to sign your limited edition funny books and what cool exclusive swag you can look forward to picking up - it's your ultimate field guide to this year's MEFCC and you shouldn't be caught without it.
Don't fret, we'll be handing out free copies of the magazine at the Stuff stand to all visitors, we wouldn't want to leave you unprepared.
Speaking of our stand...
Stand your ground
Yes, you're seeing that right, it's a freaking Hummer and we're rolling it up through the halls of Comic Con and onto the Stuff stand.
Thanks to our partnership with Alienware and Windows 10, this beaut of modern engineering transforms into the ultimate gaming station complete with 6 high-end Alienware laptops all running the very latest games. You'll be able to swing by our stand and get stuck in to Call of Duty, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and Formula 1 racing on the most powerful gaming hardware currently available.
For a little sneak peak, check out the below behind-the-scenes 360 video of the photoshoot from our Comic Con cover feature.
At the stand you'll be able to check out this video on a VR headset, so you can experince what it's like first-hand to be on set at one of Stuff's legendary photoshoots.
WIN 1 of 3 Alienware Alphas
It wouldn't be Comic Con if we weren't handing out a bunch of cool swag including t-shirts, powerbanks and (forgive us) selfie sticks.
But of course, that's not all. Thanks to Alienware and Windows 10, we'll be giving visitors to the stand a chance to win 1 of 3 Alienware Alphas. These tiny but mighty gaming PCs want to bring the glory of PC gaming away from your desktop and onto the TV in your living room.
We've got one unit to give away for each day of the convention so be sure to pick up a copy of Stuff once you're there to find out how you can enter.
The Middle East Film & Comic Con takes place 7-9 April 2016 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Visit the Stuff stand #56B.
