LOS ANGELES (UKTN) – Los Angeles Comic Con will host an in-person convention in December, organizers said Thursday.
The in-person event will take place December 3-5, 2021 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Among the featured stars will be Zachary Levi, Frank Miller and Giancarlo Esposito.

This will mark the first LA Comic Con in person in over two years. The last in-person congress took place in October 2019.
LA Comic Con was forced to cancel its September 2020 convention. It was postponed to December 2020, before also postponing those dates because California was under a statewide lockdown.
It was postponed to September 2021, then pushed back to December 2021 to ensure it could attract the largest number of participants in person.

“When we realized we couldn’t host our event last December, we defaulted to September 2021 because it was the same weekend we would have had our original show in 2020,” said Chris DeMoulin, CEO of Comikaze Entertainment, LA Comic. Con’s parent company, in a statement. “However, now that we have seen how 2021 is going, we have concluded that the new December dates seem the most accessible for the greatest number of fans. At this point in the year, more people will likely feel safe attending an event in person, and we also wanted to make sure that our dates wouldn’t interfere with people’s vacation plans.
A three-day pass costs $ 90. The event will also have a virtual element for fans who do not wish to attend in person.
Meanwhile, San Diego Comic-Con announced last week that it was pushing its convention in person until November. The massive event, which attracts several hundred thousand people, is usually held in July.
