The battle for Comic Con 2013 badges takes place on February 16

February 1, 2013

It’s that time again!  Comic Con International returns to San Diego this summer, July 18 – 21, and the battle for badges has been scheduled for February 16 at 9 AM PT.  Last year, four-day badges sold out in less than twenty-five minutes on the day of public on sale.  Prices remain the same as last year for four day adult badges with $175 for a four day with preview night and $150 for a four day without preview night. Single day badges for Thursday, Friday and Saturday have gone up $2 per day to $42 and Sunday has gone up $1 to $24.  For detailed instructions  as well as a badge purchase “cheat sheet,” visit the Comic Con Badge Registration page.  Please note that you MUST register for a Comic Con Member ID prior to February 12 to be eligible to purchase Comic Con tickets.

Comic Con has become the hottest ticket of the summer. This year, although nothing has officially been announced, when it comes to films and TV shows, we are hoping for panels on ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,’ Marvel properties such as ‘Thor: The Dark World’ and ‘Captain America 2: The Winter Solider,’ ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,’ ‘Ender’s Game,’ ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,’ as well as ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Once Upon a Time,’ ‘True Blood,’ ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ and other page to big and small screen adaptations.

If you can’t make it to the big show in San Diego, you may want to consider attending WonderCon in Anaheim, Calif, March 29-31 at the Anaheim Convention Center.  Put on by the same company that runs the San Diego Comic Con, its move from San Francisco to Anaheim last spring allowed the opportunity for Hollywood to stop by.  There were panels with cast member appearances from ‘Prometheus,’ ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ ‘Looper,’ ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ and more.  WonderCon badges are now on sale.

Page to Premiere  will be covering both WonderCon and Comic Con again this year. Will you be joining us in San Diego or Anaheim?
