Comic Con Revolution, an Ontario-based event that features comic book artists and authors, animators, voice actors and more, has postponed its planned date to August amid concerns over the novel coronavirus.
Organizers for the convention announced that it would be postponed from its original dates on May 16 and 17, to August 8 and 9 in an email sent to fans on Monday, March 23, and that the decision was made “based on the CDC recommendations and government mandates.”
The Ontario-based event hosts more than 100 guests in the comic book, TV and film industries yearly.
Attendees who have already purchased tickets can choose to either use them at the upcoming August dates or roll them over to 2021 dates, according to the emailed letter.
“All ticket holders will be contacted soon with information on how to make their choice,” the email states. “If you have purchased photo ops or luncheons you will be contacted directly in the coming weeks.”
The news of the convention’s postponement follows an announcement by WonderCon in Anaheim, that it would also reschedule. WonderCon was originally slated for April 10-12 and organizers have not yet announced a new date.
