This year, the festivities will include a fundraiser that aims to help combat homelessness by building a whole village of tiny homes, funded by a currently active GoFundMe. Tickets to attend the online event are free, and you can get yours now through Eventbrite (plus, RSVPing will get you entered into the first drawing of the day)!
Will you be attending one of these online events? Is there an essential online comics event this weekend that we’ve overlooked? Let The Beat know in the comments or on social media @comicsbeat!
