Comics fans can rejoice now because San Diego Comic-Con 2020 will be held virtually that too for free.
The show will go on virtually thanks to [email protected] and it will take place from July 22-26, the same dates the convention was supposed to be originally held.
This is the first time in the con's 50-year history that San Diego Comic Con was canceled. The live event will instead return to the San Diego Convention Center from July 22-25, 2021.
Comic-Con's official statement revealed the following details:
"Plans for [email protected] include an online Exhibit Hall complete with everyone's favorite exhibitors offering promotions, specials, and limited-edition products unique to the celebration. As well, [email protected] promises exclusive panels and presentations about comics, gaming, television, film, and a wide variety of topics from publishers, studios, and more. As if that weren't enough, [email protected] will also have a Masquerade, gaming, and many other activities in which fans can participate from their own homes."
The organizers also said the online attendees can use the official #ComicConAtHome hashtag to be included in the virtual activities.
