With things the way that they currently are, we’ve seen all kinds of events, conventions, and even movie dates pushed back, cancelled, and delayed. This weekend was supposed to kick off the 2020 con season with Emerald City Comic Con, which was postponed earlier this month. In the wake of the postponement plenty of creators have come together to create cool virtual events under the banner of #ECCCONLINE. We’re always excited to support artists and highlight the great work they’re doing so we’ve collected the tweets of some of our favorite artists who were supposed be at ECCC so that you can support them and if you find something you love make sure to share with the tag #AmplifyArtists.
