SDCC 2020 At Home Edition – The Real Virtual Experience, plus partial day 1 recap

Day 1 (and a half) of San Diego Comic Con 2020 is in the bag, and it’s a real treat to have these panels available for a virtual con experience.

On the latest podcast, Michael and I talk about the “must have” surrounding experiences for an honest-to-goodness virtual convention. You’ll never be able to replicate the experience of standing in line for three hours to hope for a glimpse of Don Cheadle in Hall H, but there are some things you definitely can do to enhance your own “at home” Comic Con experience.

In addition, we talk about some of the panels we’ve already seen, including the sure to be hilarious upcoming comedy series “Truth Seekers”, starring Nick Frost and Simon Pegg – debuting on Amazon Prime Video this fall. \

We hope you’ll join us this weekend. With only about 100k passes issued this year, SDCC is one of the hardest tickets to get, so to be real, this is the closest some people will ever get to experience the glory of SDCC.

All panels are available for viewing on YouTube after they air, so if there’s something you missed, there’s still time for you to grab a pretzel dog, camp out on your carpet, and enjoy the fun!

Plus, as promised, here’s another flashback cosplay from an SDCC from years gone by.

Best part of the Galactus outfit? Not the Earth in his hand, but the tiny Silver Surfer floating directly across from his left shoulder. See it?
