Well at least it’s not ON Thanksgiving day. That means that us nerds can still scarf down that turkey dinner before heading to San Diego. Oh yeah, I’m going!!!
San Diego Comic Con is returning in 2021. Despite recent news that the massive, pop culture convention would be going virtual, plans have changed. Comic-Con International has announced their plans to hold an in-person convention in 2021.
The three-day event titled, “Comic-Con Special Edition” will take place over Thanksgiving weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 26 through the 28 at the San Diego Convention Center.
“It is our hope that by Fall conditions will permit larger public gatherings,” the announcement said. “Comic-Con Special Edition will be the first in-person convention produced by the organization since Comic-Con 2019, and the first since the onset of the global pandemic COVID-19. The Fall event will allow the organization to highlight all the great elements that make Comic-Con such a popular event each year, as well as generate much needed revenue not only for the organization but also for local businesses and the community.”
BUT WE NEED DETAILS Y’ALL.. How are tickets going to work? Some of us bought tickets to the 2020 con that didn’t happen, that were supposed to rollover to the next official Comic Con. So, is this it? Or do we get a choice? Obviously, this ‘special addition’ isn’t going to be nearly as cool as the super-summer-events we’re used to.
