To our Keystone Comic Con community –
We know it’s been a minute. Earlier this year, we announced dates and timelines for our 2021 ReedPop event line-up and many of you noticed that a key show was missing from that list.
At the time, we were hoping to be looking forward to the third year with our Philly community—to be cheering on a wrestling match on the Show Floor, watching cosplayers gather for photo ops in Cosplay Central, or running to the Reading Terminal Market to down a pretzel-wrapped hot dog for lunch.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t in the cards for us, and we won't be running Keystone Comic Con this year. This was not an easy decision for us to make and we didn’t make it lightly. We worked for a long time to try and figure out a way to still build you a fantastic physical event. Knowing that we won’t be on-site, feeling the energy of our fans and exhibitors is heartbreaking for a team that put years of hard work into the creation and growth of this show.
While it won’t be returning in 2021, as the world gets back to normal and things stabilize, we hope to bring KCC back in the future. In the meantime, we’ll keep the spirit of the event alive and continue to connect with all of you through our virtual initiatives at FindtheMetaverse.com. We encourage you to sign up for our Metaverse newsletter to keep up to date with the exciting experiences to come.
Thank you for your support in what has been a difficult year for our entire community. Thank you for your patience and understanding at every turn, and for your continued love and excitement for Keystone Comic Con since its start.
You’ll hear from us again real soon.
Higher, further, faster,
