San Diego Comic-Con is the fan mecca that I like to call the ‘Nerdi-gras’.  It’s overcrowded, it’s loud, it’s garrish, it’s overwhelming, and it’s tons of genre fun, if you know how to navigate it.   I’ve gone for the last 10+ years, and I LOVE IT. But this year the convention was cancelled, like everything else fun.

But don’t lose heart, because it was just announced  that SDCC 2020 is going to be a free online event.  And the now online and free SDCC, will take place over July 22 until July 26, the same dates the live show was scheduled for.

SDCC spokesperson David Glanzer spoke officially about the free event, open to all fans.

“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.”

So as we get closer to the new online SDCC, and get more information about events and schedules, I’ll keep you in the loop.  Thanks Comic-Con!  We need this!
