Just about anyone with a budget can hand out swag at Comic-Con, but it takes a sensitive company to think about all of the people whose hopes were dashed on Registration Day. This summer that would be IMAX and they're here to help you win a gift bag containing - in addition to other things - a year's worth of IMAX tickets.
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address, include IMAX Giveaway in what they call the headline (but I assume is the subject line) and make sure you've "liked" them on Facebook. They say winners are "randomly" picked but they also say it doesn't hurt to throw in a reason why you deserve to win, so make up a sob story about how royally you suffered in your failed attempt to get a Comic-Con badge. Or just tell the real one.
Here's what in the gift bag:
Oh, and they didn't forget about attendees; free pedicabs will be afoot to ride you wherever you want to go around the Gaslamp and street teams will be handing out gifts. Do not try to win the gift bags, because those are for the people staying home, and the bad karma will jinx you during Pre-Registration. You're already getting the gift of Comic-Con.
