Your Geeky Parent Guide to San Diego Comic-Con (Comic-Con@Home) 2020: Sunday

The final day of San Diego Comic-Con 2020 will still have plenty of opportunities for parents and kiddos to jump into some fun exploration of storytelling.

Whether it be following a character from beginning to end in a long series, developing emotional bonds, or creating something unique like a spinoff story or cosplay outfit, stories have the ability to leave a lasting mark.
