Though San Diego Comic Con won’t be taking place this year, organisers Comic-Con are keeping up certain traditions from the annual event.
Instead of the usual con, 2020 will find the first Comic-Con@Home event with panels streamed on the organisations YouTube channel. In the run up to SDCC each day’s full schedule is announced to help hype fans and get them planning their days in the convention centre.
2020 is no different as overnight the schedule for Friday’s panels has been announced. There’s a heavy comics focus on the event this year with Hollywood film and TV productions heavily effected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Comic-Con@Home takes place between Wednesday 22 and Sunday 26 July.
