50TH ANNUAL SAN DIEGO COMIC CON CANCELED

It is being reported that San Diego Comic Con has officially been canceled, due to you-know-who’s continuous wrath on humans and businesses worldwide. The annual event was supposed to take place on July 23. Those who have already purchased tickets will have the option of getting a refund, or transferring their badges to Comic-Con 2021. If I were someone who purchased tickets, I’d choose the latter.

“For the first time in its 50-year history San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC), the organizers behind the annual pop culture celebration, announced today with deep regret that there will be no Comic-Con in 2020,” the organization said in a statement. “The event will instead return to the San Diego Convention Center from July 22-25, 2021. Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for its conventions each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely upon its events for a major portion of their livelihood, they had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer. Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Governor of California have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.”

It’s unfortunate that SDCC and so many events had to be canceled this year, but we must stand on the right side of caution and wait until a vaccine is available before we think about migrating in large places again. SDCC doesn’t want to face a lawsuit by bunching up over 100,000 people in one room. New York Comic Con I believe is in November, so we might still have a chance of having some sort of Comic Con event this year, but don’t quote me on that just yet.
