There is a ray of light for pop culture enthusiasts amid the global health crisis, with the first eComic Con Live to take place virtually next month.
Domain Entertainment and the creators of Comic Con Arabia, Panache Middle East, have come together to create an event that will take place on July 3.
Comic Cons have become a big draw in Saudi Arabia during the past few years, a magnet for pop culture fans in the region. A number of international stars — such as Ian Somerhalder, Jason Momoa, Alexander Skarsgard, and Mads Mikkelsen — have also attended the events in Riyadh and Jeddah.
This year however, due to the global lockdown, the chances of fans enjoying their annual Comic Con fun in real life are nonexistent. So organizers have come up with ways to keep spirits up by providing fans with a virtual space so that they can attend celebrity panels, artist workshops and more.
