For the first time in 50 years, the world will be able to enjoy San Diego Comic-Com for free. A virtual event called Comic-Con @ Home was announced, which will take place between the 22nd and 26th of July, bringing panels and presentations aimed at series, games, films and comics, as well as competitions and other activities. Several studios, publishers and personalities should be present.
The novelty arrived to prevent fans from running out of news due to the impossibility of physically performing the attractions because of the new coronavirus. It will even be possible to print your own badge to participate in the community, whose activities will use an official hashtag to make the meeting even more evident: #ComicConAtHome.
BREAKING: San Diego #ComicCon at Home will be held on the same dates as the previously canceled Comic-Con, July 22-26 and be FREE.

There is no limit on participation. In addition, exhibitions will be released that will bring different products, including exclusive and limited edition, and promotions created only for the event.
“We hope to deliver the best possible experience and a sense of community to all those who have an internet connection and are interested in pop culture news,” says the official statement.
Other similar initiatives include the Comic-Con Museum @ Home, which can also be accessed from anywhere without the risk of crowding during the pandemic. So, are you going to participate?
