Welcome back Comic-Con Lovers!
Today begins the virtual Comic-Con at Home convention sponsored by the great team at Comic-Con International.
The event features all types of entertainment events that convention goers love, sans the actual in person experience that has been postponed for two seasons as everyone recovers from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic.
We here at Team WHR will be virtually attending many events and have selected a few of our favorites to share with you and hope you will consider attending virtually as well while we all wait patiently for the return of San Diego Comic-Con as a live in person event in 2022.
Naturally, like the live in-person events, there are too many scheduled events to cover in this feature article. The good part of Comic-Con at Home? Fans can view the virtual panels anytime during or after the festivities on YouTube. The entire schedule is available by clicking here.
In the meantime, we have prepared a fun video preview featuring some of our most enjoyable memories from the past with regard to the panels and guests featured at the Comic-Con at Home 2021 event. Enjoy!

Ray Harryhausen: Celebrating the Legacy of a Titan
Start time: Jul 24, 2021 2:00 pm (GMT-07:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)
“Legendary stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen kept an incredible archive of some 50,000 items gathered throughout his filmmaking career, containing models and artworks from each of his classic films, including Jason and the Argonauts and Clash of the Titans. The Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation are now responsible for the upkeep of this renowned collection. Join John Walsh (Foundation trustee) and Connor Heaney (collections manager) for behind-the-scenes images and astonishing insights from the Foundation’s restoration program, and learn more about plans for future exhibitions in the USA and beyond.
In what would have been his centenary year, some of Ray’s most iconic creations have been conserved, repaired, and restored for public display. Restorer Alan Friswell, handpicked by Ray to preserve the model collection, has painstakingly conserved these priceless pieces in strict accordance with the creator’s wishes.
As well as physically repairing models such as the Kraken, Kali, and the Hydra, the Foundation has also begun a pioneering program of 3D scanning, ensuring that a digital record of Ray’s techniques will live on for generations to come.”

Their events will cover Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe and more! GW has scheduled a number of Stargate events and interviews at Comic-Con at Home for 2021 subsequent to their team addressing an outbreak of LGBTQ hate attacks that occurred on their forum in 2020 by a number of moderators that were responsible for the heinous behavior.

Last, but not least, we look forward to seeing you all in at WonderCon and San Diego Comic-Con in the future during 2022, perhaps sooner in San Diego itself if the Comic-Con International SDCC event planned for late November of this year is not impacted by the pandemic.
