Comic conventions are slowly coming back - here's what to look forward to



Comic conventions have grown to become an integral part of the comic book experience, allowing fans to meet their favorite comic creators, buy an array of comic book merchandise, and bond with fans just like them.


While the COVID-19 pandemic stymied the 'classic' comic convention experience for much of 2020 and early 2021, convention organizers are slowly beginning to return to in-person events.

Reedpop, for example, has set up dates for Emerald City Comic Con and C2E2 for this fall - and has released some expansive plans for safety in this pandemic times which include proof of vaccine, mask requirements, and temperature checks at some conventions.


And while Comic-Con International: San Diego will once again be 'virtual' this July, the organization is planning a scaled-down event called Comic-Con: Special Edition this November.


With that in mind, we have assembled a list of all the upcoming conventions comic book fans should be aware of.


Please keep in mind your safety. Pay attention to local authorities about social distancing guidelines, and check with the conventions for how they're handling the crowds. Be informed and make the best decision for you and those you're bringing with you.


Due to the pandemic, a number of major conventions have yet to announce dates for their next event, but we're keeping a watch out for news about Small Press Expo, Keystone Comic Con, and more.
