Each July, comic, movie, TV, and cosplay fans descend upon southern California for the annual San Diego Comic-Con — or they usually do.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the convention pivoted online in the form of livestream panels airing on YouTube, Twitter, and wherever video players can be found. While much of the country has cautiously sprung back, SDCC 2021 continues the trend out of the safety of its patrons. Luckily, the event is still packing in talent-filled panels, including new looks at mainstays like Star Trek, Adventure Time, Marvel and DC Comics, Magic: The Gathering, and Doctor Who. Though it’s being conducted entirely in the Zoom style that many of us have grown accustomed to over the last year and a half, Comic-Con still promises to offer fans loads of news, announcements, cheeky interviews, and celebration.

While we’re saddened not to be there in person in 2021, Polygon’s goal is to still cover the event like nothing’s changed, bringing you all the trailers, breaking news, and reports from the panels. Plus, virtual con-goers should keep their eyes peeled for a number of bigger features that fit right into the spirit of the event.

Throw on your replica armor or superhero emblem t-shirt of choice — it’s Comic-Con time.
