In a year that has disrupted the comic book industry and the convention scene alike, Skybound Entertainment is going virtual to celebrate its 10th anniversary. The comic book banner from The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman will host Skybound Xpo, a two-day event scheduled for July 18-19 that will stream on YouTube and Facebook.
Skybound Xpo will include a panel with Kirkman, who will discuss his latest creation, Fire Power. The event will also include a panel looking back at Skybound’s 10 years of history, as well as another featuring trivia about the company and its properties, hosted by Movie Trivia Schmoedown‘s Kristian Harloff.
“Like the rest of our community, we miss the comic-cons we go to every year,” said Skybound CEO David Alpert, who founded the company with Kirkman. “In this off year, we wanted to make sure we could still connect with fans in some way. We’re excited to share the awesome content from our new wave of creators as Skybound turns ten.”
In normal years, San Diego Comic-Con might be the place for companies such as Skybound to celebrate with fans in person, but the coronavirus pandemic has seen July’s Comic-Con and other events canceled or migrating online. Like Skybound, Warner Bros. responded to the pandemic by plotting its own DC-themed online event for August, where it’s TV shows, films and comics will have a presence.
