Do you feel more confined than a corpse in a cemetery? Are you reading to claw your way out of a shallow grave and shamble across the countryside? There’s a better option: online events!

Check out these upcoming online events to alleviate your mausoleum fever!


You can attend a book group discussion on the ultimate zombie novel, George A. Romero’s The Living Dead, when co-author Daniel Kraus visits Book Club on Thursday, March 25th, 2021 at 7:00 PM Central Time.

While the event is free to attend, you do need to register in advance, which you can do here.


This weekend is WonderCon @ Home! As we continue to navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we still haven’t quite reached the point where we can convene in person once again. The silver lining? No matter where you are in the country, you can watch the panels being streamed online!

Here at The Beat, we’ll have plenty of coverage on the event, so stay tuned. And be sure and head over to the official WonderCon website to see the schedule of online panels being offered!


Although we reported in previous online event coverage that the third annual Shero Con would be taking place on Saturday, March 27th, 2021, it sadly seems as though the event has been delayed to a later date in 2021.

You can check out the Shero Con website to keep up to date on when the rescheduled event may be.


The Will Eisner Annual Spring Lecture featuring cartoonist Harry Bliss will be taking place on April 1st, 2021 at 3:00 PM Eastern Time. He’ll be discussing his new collection, A Wealth of Pigeons: A Cartoon Collection, which is a collaboration with Steve Martin.

The virtual event – which promises to be both sophisticated and sophmoric – will be streamed on YouTube, so there’s no need to register in advance. Just mark your calendar! The lecture is presented by The Center for Cartoon Studies, the Leslie Center for Humanities, and the Will and Ann Eisner Family Organization.

Will you be attending any of these online events? Do you have a tip on an upcoming comics or comics-adjacent Zoom panel or VR space? Give The Beat a shoutout, either in the comment section or on social media @comicsbeat!
