The Motor City Comic Con is the latest local victim of coronavirus schedule changes.
The popular gathering of self-confessed, and proud, pop culture geeks has called off its scheduled May 15-17 run, saying that "safety of all humans is our number one concern and, therefore, having the Motor City Comic Con in May is just not an option."
The Showplace is reportedly being considered as an auxiliary hospital facility as the number of covid-19 infections grows in the metro area.
Organizers promises "to determine new dates for later in the year" but is refunding any tickets within 7-10 business days as well as any fees paid by vendors and artists.
In a statement, Michael Goldman and Miriam Kruger say that the move is "heartbreaking for all of us...But we're hopeful and we're strong and we're not going anywhere. Superheroes never lose the fight. We observe, adapt, persevere and overcome...and we will prevail."
The Comic Con, Michigan's largest gathering of its kind, was set to host the likes of Alice Cooper, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, Creed Bratton and more for discussions, autograph and photo sessions and more.
