The Comic-Con takes place virtually this year. Amazon Prime Video is present at the fair with four panels. In addition, the streaming service launches its own “Virtual-Con”, which you can also participate in without Prime membership.
Comic-Con attracts thousands of comic, film and television fans to San Diego every year. This year the world’s largest comic fair was to take place from July 22nd to 26th, but had to be canceled due to the corona pandemic. The organizers moved the trade fair into the virtual space without further ado: The Comic-Con @ Home will now also take place online from July 22 to 26 – this time even free of charge for the participants.
Amazon Prime Video will also be appearing on the night of July 23-24 with four panels of recurring and new series: “The Boys”, “Upload”, “Utopia” and “Truth Seekers”. These panels are supplemented by new announcements, special previews, behind-the-scenes insights and Fan-Q & As. More than 30 actors, creators and crew members from numerous Amazon Original series should have their say, including Seth Rogen, Eric Kripke, Aisha Tyler, Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, Greg Daniels, Robbie Amell, Andy Allo, Gillian Flynn , John Cusack, Rainn Wilson, Sasha Lane, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
Like all the others, the panels are also streamed via the Comic-Con channels. In addition, Amazon is launching its own Virtual Con for the first time. The panels will be available there at the same time as at Comic-Con @ Home. The Amazon Virtual-Con should act as a central point of contact for all participants to conveniently access and participate in all of Amazon’s Comic-Con campaigns.
Amazon advertises that fans can come together virtually as a community to share experiences, see their favorite stars, learn from leading comic book illustrators how to draw some of their favorite characters, and share their knowledge of comic films with like-minded fans to test in quizzes.
In addition to the series panels for “The Boys”, “Upload”, “Utopia” and “Truth Seekers”, the Amazon Virtual-Con also offers a range of content and activities from Amazon’s portfolio of entertainment brands, including Prime Video, to match the convention , IMDb, Twitch, comiXology, Audible, Alexa and Fire TV. The Amazon Virtual-Con is available free of charge from Thursday, July 23, to Sunday, July 26, at www.amazon.com/virtualcon – even without an existing Prime membership. The complete schedule can also be found there.
