Tune into 'Adult Swim Con' Virtual Event July 23-25


If anything positive could have said to have to come out of a really bad situation, it could be the rise of the virtual convention and festival. Although they have popped up due to the necessity of cancelling large in-person gatherings they have been a boon for people who could never normally take part in these events, due to geographical or financial reasons, or disability. As well at the San Diego Comic-Con At Home, this week will also see the first-ever Adult Swim Con.

Adult Swim Con is described as a "free global virtual fan gathering" and will run from Thursday, July 23 to Saturday, July 25. Highlights of the program will include behind the scenes looks and cast and crew Q&As for Rick and Morty and Robot Chicken, a Toonami session featuring new show announcements and previews of Blade Runner and Uzumaki and an exclusive look at the new video game Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time.

The event will also feature the Adult Swim Cosplay Cup, hosted on Adults Swim's IGTV, featuring contestants around the world showing us what they've got.

Adult Swim Con will be available via the convention's website.
