Join us in person for Comic-Con Special Edition Nov. 26-28, 2021!

With current COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines, Comic-Con Special Edition is not intended to be the large gathering reflective of the summer event. Reduced in attendance, shorter in the number of days, and purposefully smaller in scope, this convention is meant to be a more intimate gathering while still evoking the fun community feeling our conventions are known for, including great exhibits, programs, cosplay, gaming, and other events, but also addressing the desire from fans to have an in-person show. If that weren’t enough, while your friends may be out battling the crowds on Black Friday, you can enjoy your very own Fannish Friday Shopping at Special Edition.

Long-time attendees may find some aspects of Special Edition to be reminiscent of our convention from years past. Halls G and H, for example, will be the staging area for Attendee Registration, and with the exception of some events at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, the majority of Special Edition will be held within the walls of the San Diego Convention Center.

While open to all and with the hope that we will be able to accommodate fans from all over, we understand that due to potential travel-based restrictions and other challenges, Comic-Con Special Edition may be an event attended mostly by those more easily able to travel to San Diego. However, regardless of where you come from, this will be our first opportunity to gather together to experience the community we have all been missing and we are excited to see you again.

Of course, the effects of the pandemic have been challenging in many ways not only for our organization but also for others within the popular arts and culture community, including the delay of our planned construction on and opening of the Comic-Con Museum in 2020. The good news is we are very excited that in conjunction with Special Edition is the limited opening of the Comic-Con Museum on Friday, Nov. 26, 2021, and we look forward to the grand opening scheduled in July of 2022.
