For the first time in 51 years, those who live outside of San Diego don’t have to spends thousands of dollars in order to experience one of the biggest annual events in entertainment. Comic-Con as we’ve always known it may be a no-go this year, but like many of us, the gargantuan fan convention is making an effort to cling to any shred of normalcy it can by taking the event to the digital streets with a large-scale virtual con. You don’t need a badge or any cosplay (though some will hold on tightly to those vestiges of “before times,” and that’s fine), just a comfortable seat, some snacks, and a marginally decent internet connection.
Since Wednesday, Comic-Con has revealed a new section of the five-day schedule each day. You can head to the site to the get full run-down of all the panels, including Wednesday’s preview offerings. However, if you want a look at some of the major online events that Comic-Con is offering July 22 - July 26, take a gander at the highlights below.
