San Diego Comic-Con 2020 to Go Virtual, Announces At Home Event
Another event to go digital due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After being canceled for the first time in 50 years, San Diego Comic-Con will shift to a digital version due to the coronavirus pandemic. Event organizers announced the change on Twitter and Instagram with a video dubbing the now-virtual convention “Comic-Con at Home.” ”Coming soon… Free parking, comfy chairs, personalized snacks, no lines, pets welcome, badges for all, and a front-row seat,” the official announcement reads.
Though an exact date and format has yet to be announced, prospective attendees can expect the event to take place around July 23, its original start date. Special guests confirmed to attend the event pre-cancellation include Suicide Squad writer Josh Ostrander, Batman artist Lee Weeks and Batgirl writer Cecil Castellucci. It remains to be seen whether this programming will hold for Comic-Con’s virtual iteration.
