Planet Comicon Kansas City is one of the largest and longest-running comic book convention and pop culture events in the region. Due to ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, it was announced that the three-day pop culture celebration has been canceled. Planet Comicon Kansas City was set to celebrate it 21st annual event, which was already rescheduled once from its original date back in March.
PCKC founder and CEO, Chris Jackson said,
“The health and safety of those attending Planet Comicon Kansas City is paramount. After consultations with the convention center management, as well as many exhibitors, creators, guests and fans, we do not see a way to move forward that would allow an event that resembles Planet Comicon Kansas City to proceed while also protecting the health and safety of the thousands of people who attend PCKC.”
