Los Angeles Comic Con Canceled, Will Be Back Next Year

LA Comic Con

Los Angeles Comic Con, which was supposed to take place December 11-13, has been scrubbed. Rather than doing a virtual con as some other conventions have done (like San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con), LACC made plans to be back next year for a live event. Now the next event is on for September 24-26, 2021.

According to Anime News Network, the people behind Los Angeles Comic Con felt that they hadn’t been given proper guidelines by the governor in order to make this a safe event. Guests who were supposed to attend this year will be around next year, and if you’ve already bought a ticket, you can either get a refund or use the ticket in 2021.

Needless to say, cons being cancelled is a regular occurrence this year, and Japanamerica author Roland Kelts recently investigated how anime conventions are handling this new reality.
