Oh, L.A. Comic Con whatever were you thinking?

COVID-19 has changed things, forever. I don’t think we’ll ever go back to how things were, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Many of us have changed and grown because of the pandemic, mostly for the better.

It has forced us to take a good look at what we have, sensibly and realistically, and also to learn to appreciate everything we hold dear because of the reality that our lives are quite fleeting.

Or you can throw all of that we have learnt these past couple months away for a few days of normalcy with the risk of dying, of course!

L.A. Comic Con might not be a good idea, people.

So, as it turns out, L.A. Comic Con will be moving forward with a new schedule planned, from December 11 to 13. I know, shocking.

Every other significant conventions and event of this year have gotten cancelled because of the severity of the pandemic. Despite that, L.A. Comic Con is boldly throwing caution to the wind, and the reason why? 

It’s quite simple; they want some normality back in their lives, and what better way to do it than in an event filled with thousands of people right? And I’m not making it up, at all. Chris DeMoulin, the general manager of the con, even went on to explain his reasoning to Los Angeles Daily News.

L.A. Comic-Con will at least be adhering to some amount of safety measures to protect everyone. The entirety of the convention centre will be rented for more space, to spread out exhibits and activities and the number of visitors is getting reduced to half of the usual amount.

Despite all of the precautions, I don’t think that it’s a good idea to risk your life and the safety of your loved ones, just for a few hours of activities and entertainment. You might as well sit back at home safely and enjoy the event since it will be live-streamed for everyone.
