The 2020 San Diego Comic-Con is online only this year; after coronavirus concerns made mounting the annual celebration of comics, movies, TV, and cosplay an impossibility. The good news is that this year, anyone who wants to can check out the conventions cavalcade of panels, including the latest from DC Comics.
SDCC has been transformed into five days of digital panels and talent interviews conducted over Zoom-like calls — and fans can explore the world of DC Comics in not one but two DC@Home panels, scheduled for Friday and Saturday.
DC@Home Day One will go live on the Comic-Con@Home YouTube channel at 10 a.m. / 1 p.m. EST on Friday. The line-up is set to include more than a dozen artists and writers, including DC’s publisher Jim Lee, Brian Michael Bendis (Superman), Kelly Sue DeConnick (Aquaman), Mitch Gerads (Mister Miracle), Mikel Janín and Tom King (Batman), Mariko Tamaki (Wonder Woman), and Tom Taylor (Suicide Squad).
DC@Home Day Two will go live on the Comic-Con@Home YouTube channel at 11 a.m. / 1 p.m. EST on Saturday. This panel’s lineup is slated to involve another dozen folks from DC’s talent pool, including Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, masterminds of Dark Nights: Death Metal; James Tynion IV (Batman); Cecil Castellucci (Batgirl); Kami Garcia (Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity); and Sean Gordon Murphy (Batman: White Knight).
Viewers should expect teases and updates on ongoing and upcoming books, like the newly announced Rorschach series from Tom King and Jorge Fornés, Mariko Tamaki and Mikel Janín’s new arc on Wonder Woman, and the future of Dark Nights: Death Metal, which just merged Doctor Manhattan with the Batman Who Laughs. But it seems likely that DC will want to keep its biggest reveals and announcements hush hush for now, in preparation for the company’s mini convention, DC FanDome, taking place on Aug. 22.
