To show beyond doubt that while the world isn’t quite ready to resume some manner of normal programming, it’s certainly thinking hard about, it the organisers of San Diego Comic Con have announced plans to hold an in-person physical event at the San Diego Convention Center over the weekend of 26th – 28th November 2021.

San Diego Comic-Con is returning in 2021 as a “special edition” gathering. Despite recent news that the massive, pop culture convention would be going virtual in July, plans for the fall gathering have moved forward. Comic-Con International has announced their plans to hold an in-person convention in 2021.

The three-day event titled, “Comic-Con Special Edition” will take place over Thanksgiving weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 26 through the 28 at the San Diego Convention Center.

“It is our hope that by Fall conditions will permit larger public gatherings,” the announcement said. “Comic-Con Special Edition will be the first in-person convention produced by the organization since Comic-Con 2019, and the first since the onset of the global pandemic COVID-19. The Fall event will allow the organization to highlight all the great elements that make Comic-Con such a popular event each year, as well as generate much needed revenue not only for the organization but also for local businesses and the community.”

We discuss this and much more on the forthcoming 83rd episode of Making Tracks, which lands this coming Tuesday.
