COVID-19 Impacts Comicon Schedules

With the spread of the COVID-19 virus, a number of events have been impacted by various “State of Emergency” declarations at the city, county, and state government levels. Many comicons have announced changes to their schedules. Some have postponed and are working on new dates, while others have cancelled altogether for 2020. Some are moving forward as planned. We are working to keep our calendar updated as things change.
