Yeah I've seen on Twitter both artists (like Patrick Ballesteros) and companies (Toddland) posting they're confirmed that their 2020 roll-over is good to go.  Looking at current COVID numbers starting to plummet, I think Comic-Con 2022 is in good shape.

Also weird to think: the last Comic-Con Marvel panel had Chadwick Boseman on stage hyping BLACK PANTHER sequel  :(

They have gone down before....we just have to hope for no more major variants/waves.  I so want it to be summer in San Diego again....but with no Hotel Lottery info yet it seems even SDCC is waiting for a better forecast.

I don't think it matters anymore at a societal level.  It happens during every pandemic.  People are just over it.  Unless we need to step over bodies while shopping at the grocery store, I don't think we will see closures either mandated by the government or by corporations.  The omicron surge we are hopefully on the other side of was worst than any surge before it by a wide margin, yet the response from the government and by society as a whole has been pretty muted.  It's the lowest response we've gotten of any surge.  That trend will continue.  For example, Denmark didn't just drop all restrictions they declared covid over.  They declared it no longer a threat to society.  This while they also are in the midst of their biggest surge ever.

Personally, I'll be wearing a mask at the next comic-con.  Now that it's acceptable in public in the US, I'll wear one just because I don't want to catch a cold.  But I think there will be a next comic-con.

I think you're completely right about all of this, although I don't think it's the wisest course for society. But we can't do anything about that on an individual level.

However, I also think CCI has shown itself to be *more cautious* as an organization than most (not just about the coronavirus, but in general), so I'm somewhat unsurprised that they're still holding off on Wondercon/hotel sale/etc announcements. Fingers crossed we get some information soon.

If this pandemic has showed us anything is that we should probably be wearing masks in large crowds anyway and especially while sick. We were literally ok with getting Con Flu for a long time there. I was lucky enough not to get it but will still be way more diligent about hand washing and will be wearing a N95 inside the convention center.
