The New Face in the World of Comic Cons

Hosted on the TWITCH Platform

Toronto. Friday, April 3, 2020. Born out of a quarantined world of isolation, actors Paul Amos (Jupiter’s Legacy, Lost Girl, Assassin’s Creed) and Rachel Skarsten (Batwoman, Lost Girl, Reign) are thrilled to announce HOMECON, the new face of comic cons.

HOMECON will take place on Friday, April 10 – Saturday, April 11, 2020 on the Twitch platform. Attendees will pay a subscription to access the show panels and other scheduled content. The subscription charge will be $4.99 (US$). A document will be sent through with easy step by steps on how to sign up.

Subscriptions will be available on the website which will go live mid-day Saturday, April 4, 2020. One-on-One chats will go on sale next week- check website for dates.

Special Guests include: Inbar Lavi (Lucifer), Casey Cott (Riverdale), Gregg Sulkin (Marvel’sRunaways), Ben Lewis (Arrow), Adelaide Kane (Reign), and Andrew Howard (HBO’s Watchmen). For the full list, go to www.homeconofficial.com

The One-on-One chats with celebrities will replace the traditional ‘Signing table’. This will be the exclusive part of the event. Fans will receive a scheduled invite via the Zoom platform, which can be downloaded at: https://zoom.us/download  Each chat will cost $50 (US$) for 5min with a maximum of two that can be purchased per fan. Talent can choose to have a silent moderator present.

Virtual conventions have been done before, but never to this extent. Amos and Skarsten want to connect those individuals respectfully staying at home to a community online event, saying: “We want to create a space to make sure nobody in this community feels alone during this difficult period. Attendees will have the opportunity to chat with the stars of their favourite shows in an intimate one to one video setting. Given the current world situation, we want to make this event as accessible as possible. People are struggling, emotionally and financially and we hope this event gives thousands of people the opportunity to experience something unique. We are about to create something new for the future.”

Event organizers have chosen ‘First Responders First’ http://www.firstrespondersfirst.ca/ as the event’s charity for donations.
