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.
Sunday’s events include a “conversation” with geek icon Nathan Fillion, retrospective panels for the first “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie and several “Power Rangers” TV series, and panels for upcoming Fox TV series “Next” and the Netflix animated series “Hoops.”
All times are Pacific Daylight.
