San Diego Comic Con is usually the event of the year for entertainment and pop culture. It’s where studios and various entertainment makers all coalesce for one big week-long event. The bad news is that Comic Con was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The good news for fans, is that the event is now going to be online. It’ll be online, and completely free. Let me say that again, COMPLETELY FREE.

San Diego Comic Con is usually a huge event that draws large crowds to the various halls in the San Diego Convention Center. Now it’ll be a completely online event. At least for this year, you won’t have to wait in long lines to see Bruce Campbell. If you want to watch the Hall H panels, you’ll be right there.

In addition to all the panels and celebrities of Comic Con, this online, @Home version, will have the different booths and merchandise sellers as well. A spokesperson for SDCC, David Glanzer had this to say about it.

For the first time in our 50-year history, we are happy to welcome virtually anyone from around the globe. 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.

This Is A Big Win For Comic Con Fans

I know some people are sure to be disappointed by the lack of a physical con this year. But you can at least get some of that experience, online. From July 22nd-26th, you’ll be able to at least forget about some of the problems of the world. You’ll be able to just enjoy yourself with tons of other like-minded fans. There’ll be tons of events, games, contests, and anything else that goes into a physical con, at this virtual one. San Diego Comic Con is usually the big blowout convention, this virtual one, is no different.

You’ll be able to get more information about the event leading up to it at Comic Con’s website, Toucan.
