Beyond COVID-19? NYCC is Planning an In-Person Convention this Year

 

 

New York Comic-Con is planning an in-person convention this year, running from October 7-10, 2021. The event will be held at the Javits Center. A virtual element is being planned in conjunction with the event. This decision on the heels of San Diego Comic-Con revealing its revised plans to hold an in-person show over Thanksgiving weekend, November 26-28, 2021, at the San Diego Convention Center. The company made reference to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in its announcement, saying they hoped that, by fall, “conditions will permit larger public gatherings.”

 

 

While the details of New York Comic-Con haven’t been officially confirmed yet, the October dates provided place it more than a month prior to San Diego Comic-Con, which was previously pegged to be the first in-person convention produced by the organization since Comic-Con 2019, and the first since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

But will it ever be THIS politically incorrect again? Just meeting in person isn’t the cure to what’s been ailing comic-cons for years.

 

 

More news to follow soon.
