Not even a pandemic can keep nerds from being, well, super nerdy. Although conventions around the globe have been canceled and postponed, the world-famous Comic-Con International (AKA SDCC) is coming right to your living room this week from tomorrow, July 22, through Sunday, July 26. Oh, and did we mention that since it’s not taking place in San Diego, everyone can enjoy the content regardless of badge status?

The Collective Crew hasn’t missed SDCC since we were blessed with press badges back in 2015, and we aren’t about to stop now. Keep reading for the scoop on what to expect from this year’s Comic-Con@Home!

Dear Collectors,

It’s been a while since I posted. I could tell you it’s because I’ve been working double time to make sure I don’t get furloughed, or that I’ve been sewing masks every spare moment for our medical workers and my high-risk friends and family. Really, I think the truth is that it’s because of what I’m calling “quarantigue” AKA that feeling you get when you’ve been stuck inside for 39 days and you no longer remember what day of the week it is.

Hello, Collectors, it’s been a while.

Okay, maybe not 84 years, but it certainly feels like decades have passed since the “shelter in place” order was given in California, where I live. The world changed overnight, it seemed, and it seems like every day is a bad news day with the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic.

I’m here to tell you, with a little help from John Krasinski, that it’s not all bad news everywhere. (Okay, a lot of help from John Krasinski.)
