SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego Comic-Con announced its Comic-Con@Home event will take place on the originally scheduled dates, July 22-26, and the event will be entirely free.
After canceling its in-person events at the San Diego Convention Center in April, Comic-Con had teased about home events for weeks, finally revealing this week some sense of what that will entail.
"For the first time in our 50-year history, we are happy to welcome virtually anyone from around the globe,'' said SDCC spokesperson David Glanzer. "Though stay-at-home conditions makes this a very difficult time, we see this as an opportunity to spread some joy and strengthen our sense of community.''
An online exhibit hall will still sell merchandise, and multiple panels and presentations about comics and popular culture
