Coronavirus and comic con updates in Florida

Florida Comic Cons is continually updating its 2020 calendar of comic conventions
to provide the latest information for attendees.

St. Petersburg, Fla. (March 15, 2020) – The coronavirus is spoiling comic conventions throughout the Sunshine State and Florida Comic Cons is keeping its 2020 Con Calendar updated to reflect cancellations and postponements.

Some comic cons have cancelled their 2020 events like Florida Polycon in Lakeland. Others have postponed their dates to later in the year like Florida SuperCon in Miami Beach that moved from May to July 3-5.

Beyond fan disappointment, Florida Comic Con recognizes the upcoming challenges for the many small businesses, exhibitors, individual creators and service workers impacted by COVID-19-related cancellations and postponements, said Dewey Caruthers, founder of Florida Comic Cons, a news media website that covers the events throughout the Sunshine State.

Adding to the dismay of comic con fans is how the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is beginning to close movie theaters, placing much anticipated movie releases in question. For instance, Marvel’s Black Widow, courtesy of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is scheduled to be released May 1. And, DC’s Wonder Woman 1984, the sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman and the ninth installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), is set to be released June 1.

Florida Comic Cons reminds avid cosplayers and comic con fans to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, and to continue being creative and weird nerds throughout the pandemic.

Florida Comic Cons is a news media website that covers comic conventions in The Sunshine State for cosplayers and avid fans. The Con Calendar provides a month-by-month listing of upcoming conventions and the Con Map illustrates where comic cons are happening throughout the state. Blogs and news releases report event updates, guest announcements and other info important to the fandom.
