The virtual edition of this year’s New York Comic Con is just around the corner, coming to a device near you October 8-11. Though attendees may not have the chance to dress up in their finest cosplay, line up for panels, or traverse the vendor room this year, fans can still join in on the socially-distanced action from the safety and comfort of their homes by tuning in to NYCC’s official YouTube channel.
Multiple waves of programming for the weekend have already been revealed, including panels for The Walking Dead, Helstrom, Smallville, The Good Doctor, and more! The latest announcement comes from Amazon Prime Video and IMDb TV, which will have panels on Thursday, October 8 starting at 2:15 p.m. EST for The Boys, Truth Seekers, Alex Rider, Utopia, and Invincible.
