Attend Capital City’s Virtual Comic Con from the Comfort of Home!

26 Mar

capital_city_comicon_eventSuffering from con-initus? That is, the need to attend some pop culture convention? Sadly, with parts of the world in lockdown because of COVID-19, the organizers of many an event may have to consider going online with something fun to at least keep the peace from nerds going insane. It won’t be a virtual reality simulation and nor will it be Second Life–perhaps that’s the future until this virus is contained.

Coming to your desktop near you is Capital City’s Digital Comic Con! From March 28 and 29th, you can get a different kind of experience by heading over to their Facebook page to see a list of what the local community is offering to one another for this event that was not able to take place. Confirmed is a cosplay where you can simply post a picture of the costume you were planning on wearing to this event and a podcast from The Zone. More is in the works, and it’s going to be a casual thing so people can pop in and out as they like, without feeling like they’re sitting in front of the computer for the whole event.

Links from participating groups and merchants will be provided to where attendees can get their nerd on.

For the latest updates, please visit Capital City’s Facebook page, where this digital convention is taking place..
