Comic-Con ‘At Home’ Announces Wednesday Schedule

This year’s virtual [email protected] has announced its schedule for Wednesday, July 22. The details are below.

The virtual event replaces the annual San Diego Comic-Con, the largest fan convention in North America, which was to be held July 22–26 at the San Diego Convention Center, until the COVID-19 pandemic forced its cancellation.

In June, Comic-Con International — the non-profit organization that oversees SDCC and its sister event, WonderCon in Anaheim, Calif. — announced it was moving forward with the virtual event on the same dates. This time, however, the event is free and open to all.

Wednesday has traditionally been the lightest day at Comic-Con, with a small number of panels and a preview of the conventional hall floor. In that spirit, along with the listed panels, on July 22, [email protected] will debut its “Online Exhibit Hall,” an interactive recreation of the massive Comic-Con convention floor filled with both major marquee exhibitors like Marvel, Lucasfilm Ltd., Hasbro, and Warner Bros. and DC Comics; and independent comic publishers and artists.

The rest of the [email protected] schedule will be announced daily through Sunday.

All times are Pacific Daylight.
