Due to the spread of COVID-19 around the globe, many summer events have been unfortunately postponed or cancelled. However, other conventions, conferences, announcements and more have been moved online as event hosts experiment with livestream-based, all-virtual formats. One such all-new virtual experience is Comic-Con@Home, which will replace the event typically held in San Diego, California.
Comic-Con@Home will take place from July 22 to July 26. It will feature over 350 virtual panels, some of which will remain available for viewing on the official Comic-Con YouTube channel after the event has concluded. Interested attendees can use Sched.com or the MySched mobile app to create a personalized schedule of desired panels. Best of all, the event is completely FREE!
Daily panel schedules are being released gradually, with only Wednesday, June 22 and Thursday, July 23 available so far. Both days will feature a host of exciting panels covering topics ranging from using comics in the classroom to storytelling in film, television and video games to how to engage with fandom in the era of COVID-19.
Additionally, film and TV studios ranging from Amazon to Disney and ABC to Fox have announced an exciting lineup of events during Comic-Con@Home. Amazon will be discussing a number of its Prime Original series, including Utopia, Upload, and the next season of The Boys. Disney TV and ABC are collaborating to offer an interview with beloved TV and film actor Nathan Fillion, which is rumored to feature a number of guest appearances including former co-stars Gina Torres and Molly Quinn and writer and director Joss Whedon.
AMC will be hosting a number of panels centered around its The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead series, as well as the new series Walking Dead: The World Beyond. Finally, Fox will be providing updates on favorite TV series including The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers and more.
