Studios and networks have long depended on Comic Con to showcase new projects like Marvel’s “MODOK,” a new stop-motion animated series coming to Hulu and voiced by Patton Oswalt.
The actor and comedian said he would miss being at the event in person.
“I like walking down Artists Alley and getting sketches and seeing smaller, independent publishers with their booths set up, and they’re selling, you know, new artists, new writers,” he says. “All this aspect that I like. ”
He’ll be on a virtual panel on the show, and for fans who love what’s called cosplay, there’s a digital contest that lets people dress up at home.
“It’s encouraging to see so many people participating,” said Rogers. “It won’t be accidentally hit by wings in a living room aisle, but I think it will be quite fun to watch. ”
New York Comic Con is more democratic this year because much of it is free.
In previous years, it could be quite expensive to attend, especially if you couldn’t resist purchasing the available merchandise.

There are a few paid “experiences” this time around, but most of the events – which you can find at FindTheMetaverse.com – won’t cost you anything.
“New York Comic Con is for everyone,” Rogers said. “We’re going to do a very, very, cool paid section, and then everything else is,” Let’s just treat the nerds. “”
The New York Comic Con opened on Thursday and ends on October 11.
