2018 Hall of Heroes Comic Con orc

A man dressed as an orc from the online role-playing game World of Warcraft drew attention at the 2018 Hall of Heroes Comic Con in downtown Elkhart.

ELKHART — There will be no Hall of Heroes Comic Con in 2020.

The convention, hosted by Elkhart’s Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum, announced Thursday that the event, scheduled for Sept. 5-6, will instead be held on March 6-7, 2021.

The postponement comes as daily increases in COVID-19 cases have been going up recently, both statewide and in Elkhart County.

That could potentially cause further delay in moving to phase five of Indiana’s reopening plan, the comic-con committee said.

“We, as a committee, feel this decision is in the best interest of our vendors, guests and staff,” they said.

The convention in March will be at Center Six One Five as originally planned. All current vendor and ticket orders will be issued a full refund, and vendors and guests will have to re-register if they plan to attend in the spring.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused, but the safety and health of our amazing fans, friends and family must come first,” the committee said.
