San Diego Comic-Con announces #ComicConAtHome as latest COVID-19 convention solution

SDCC to hold a virtual event this summer.

This weekend, San Diego Comic-Con used its official Twitter account to announce #ComicConAtHome, a virtual event to help fill the void left by San Diego Comic-Con 2020 being canceled due to COVID-19.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!
Despite not giving a set date or any event listings, the announcement does promise a multitude of things we can enjoy while watching the annual comic convention online, including:
  • Free parking
  • Comfy chairs
  • Personalized Snacks
  • No lines (!)
  • Pets welcome
  • Badges for all
  • A front row seat

Maybe it’s a good thing San Diego Comic-Con goes this route, for now

As disappointed as I am to see this event canceled for the first time in its 50-year history (along with lots of other comic-cons around the country) it’s good to know that we’ll at least get a virtual version of it. Also, as someone who has never been quick enough to secure an official badge for San Diego Comic-Con, this won’t be terribly different from the way I’ve personally had to experience the convention, anyway.

It will be interesting to see what type of events SDCC sets up for #ComicConAtHome and how they present them. Panels can obviously be done via Skype or Google Hangout calls, but virtual toy and booth displays will have to look very different or not happen at all.

We’ll keep you updated when the schedule of events is released.
