Upcoming Comic Conventions in 2021

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 has stymied the 'classic' comic convention experience, convention organizers have remained busy. Some have adapted and presented virtual conventions online, others have adapted with smaller-scale, 'socially distant' style conventions, and others have pushed back plans to 2021 and beyond in hopes it'll be safer then to have fans again. 

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 New York Comic Con, Small Press Expo, MoCCA, Keystone Comic Con, Emerald City Comic Con, Motor City Comic Con, and Komiket.
