Geeky lovers near and far, get ready to gather at home for another virtual San Diego Comic-Con this year! Like its predecessor, SDCC 2020, Comic-Con@Home will take place in the online sphere and will be free to all. The official Twitter account for the convention released a statement on Monday. 

Citing the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic as the reason for the cancellation of its in-person event, SDCC will roll over all purchased badges to 2022 unless refunds are requested. The hope is that next year we can return to normalcy and a full capacity convention. 

Naturally, this means that WonderCon in Anaheim, California will also be nixed for 2021. In its stead will be a wholly virtual (and free) event. WonderCon@Home is slated to stream later this month.

Now, SDCC is gearing toward an in-person gathering sometime in November 2021. Details are scant for now as the specifics are still being solidified. Of course, this event will be much smaller than SDCC’s usually massive conventions. Said November gathering will consist of three days. 

In addition, due to financial constraints, Comic-Con@Home will be reduced to three days this year. It’s understandable considering this is the second year that SDCC has offered free virtual events to the masses. 

You can peruse SDCC’s official statement below. First up, WonderCon@Home will run from March 26 to March 27. Secondly, Comic-Con@Home will take place from July 23 to July 25.
