The San Diego Comic-Con was supposed to take place this month, but seeing as the Coronavirus has no intention of slowing down, the event was rightfully cancelled. What’s great though, is that we’re going to be getting virtual event instead in the form of [email protected], and we have a full schedule for the first day.
This schedule for Wednesday, July 15 comes courtesy of ComicBook:

What’s odd is, it has been said that [email protected] was going to start on July 22, but now it looks like there’s going to be more days of these exhibits. Hopefully every event is recorded so people can check out all the panels outside of the day they were released.
Admittedly, there aren’t a lot of “big” events announced with the schedule, but it would make sense seeing as this is only the first day. No doubt we’re going to be getting the more exciting reveals come the weekend. The great thing is, everything will be free to watch for everyone, just log-in to the official SDCC page.
[email protected] kicks off on July 15.
