The global crisis, coronavirus, has been hitting on everything ranging from movie release and concerts to education and work. While everything has been adapting to this situation and going online, Comic-Con decided to hit the internet too.

San Diego Comic-Con 2020, which was earlier cancelled due to the pandemic is now going virtual for all fans. One of the biggest events of the United States entertainment industry, the meeting will this year take shape as a digital conference. The convention brings together over 1,35,000 fans from all over the world, participating in various events and indulging in cosplay.

San Diego Comic-Con made an official announcement about the event via Twitter:

“There are several different ideas floating about (concerning the format and timing of the event), but we are still in the nuts-and-bolts planning phase, which is why our tease about [email protected] was deliberately void of any specifics,” said Comic-Con International’s, David Glanzer.

This year’s Comic-Con was due to take place from July 23-26 but the event has been cancelled for the first time in 50 years. With the announcement of the cancellation of the event for 2020, the organizers confirmed that for 2021, the event will take place from July 22-25.

While the event going virtual is confirmed, the programs, broadcasting details and the entry price for this special edition have not been disclosed yet.

Though the virtual event cannot match the popularity of the main event in San Diego, the organizers are trying to make it as fun as possible for the fans – keeping in mind the limitation of online events.
