Monday's Headlines | Comic-con 2021 Update (September)

 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 Florida Supercon, New York 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.
