San Diego Comic-Con Special Edition: Museum opens, panels

San Diego Comic-Con returns, with a new Special Edition this Thanksgiving weekend Nov 26-28 in-person at the San Diego Convention Center.

The event is Comic-Con Internationals’s experiment to do something, its first official in-person event since its July 2019 convention.

In 2021, SDCC released panels all virtually in July, while fans built an unofficial SDCC shrine across from the Convention Center and posted signage and photos from SDCCs past.

This year’s Special Edition will be smaller and gentler than the regular summer show. No Hall H! Estimated attendance is less than half the regular 120,000. The Thanksgiving holiday weekend will likely decrease attendance, as many people opt instead togo home for the holiday. But this should help keep attendance at reasonable levels, which is important during this post-covid era. Attendees must show vax proof and where masks to enter and during panels inside.

Our Digital LA – Comic Cocktails returns too on Saturday Nov 27, free RSVP.
