San Diego Comic-Con at home for free



Like E3 and the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) is a summer staple for geeks (myself included). This year, SDCC will be going virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic:

"Plans for Comic-Con@Home include an online Exhibit Hall complete with everyone’s favorite exhibitors offering promotions, specials, and limited-edition products unique to the celebration. As well, Comic-Con@Home 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, Comic-Con@Home will also have a Masquerade, gaming, and many other activities in which fans can participate from their own homes."

“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.”

Comic-Con@Home will run online from 22nd-26th July and is free. Online attendees are encouraged to use the official #ComicConAtHome hashtag to be included in the virtual activities.
