SDCC Announces 3-Day In-Person Show for This November

Comic-Con International has announced a “Special Edition” three-day in-person convention to take place over the Thanksgiving weekend. The event will start on November 26th and is said to feature “all the great elements that make Comic-Con such a popular event each year.” This event will also help the local business that count on the annual convention that has been cancelled two years in a row now.

Comic-Con spokesperson David Glanzer, “While we have been able to pivot from in-person gatherings to limited online events, the loss of revenue has had an acute impact on the organization as it has with many small businesses, necessitating reduced work schedules and reduction in pay for employees, among other issues. Hopefully this event will shore up our financial reserves and mark a slow return to larger in-person gatherings in 2022.”

The 2020 Comic-Con was cancelled and held virtually and the 2021 event has also been set up to be virtual this year between July 23rd-25th. No further information such as attendance capacity, badge pricing or guests have been released.

Many cynics expect mandatory vaccine passports to be announced in late October.
