Planet Comicon in Kansas City, Missouri, is another comic show going ahead on the 20th and 21st despite fears of the coronavirus. Indeed, they have another disease they are focusing on more.
Their "Live Art" sessions will give fans a chance to yell their favorite character and see artists demonstrate their comics skills but everyone will have a chance to walk away with one of a kind souvenir.
