San Diego Comic-Con will be hosted online for the first time in its 51-year history.

The world-famous convention, temporarily dubbed “San Diego Comic-Con@Home”, will be available to stream on YouTube for free worldwide, with no ticket purchase necessary.

As a result of extenuating circumstances, the virtual event will be smaller this year with Marvel Studios and DC having less of a presence than in previous years.

The event will take place between 22 and 26 July, with most of the action occurring between Thursday and Saturday. The opening day is reserved for teasers and previews, while Sunday is a rest day for panels.
