Breathe easy; CCI has confirmed that we ARE having 2 San Diego Comic-Con badge sales, Returning Registration and Open Registration.
And guess what? Regardless of who buys your badge, it will come straight to YOU. No more weird buyer mailing shenanigans like last year; CCI has stepped up and granted us all one of our wishes. That's good news and one less thing to worry about.
Otherwise things sound fairly similar:
- You can buy for 3 people.
- You had to attend SDCC 2016 as an attendee to participate in Returning Reg. Other people, your turn will come.
- We'll still have special member ID codes to get us into the waiting room, and it's still going to be a (heartbreaking for some) lottery.
- Most importantly, we will still face the spinning blue circle of insanity - and probably CCI's nerd version of dad jokes.
Now. This got announced on a Monday, which means that even though no dates were given, Returning Registration just may fall on this Saturday, 4 March. Right when I and 50,000 other nerds hoped it wouldn't be, because of Emerald City Comicon, but it wouldn't be a badge sale without some kind of vexing inconvenience.
Are you ready to rumble? Is your heart thump-thump-thumping with anticipation? I'll post specific advice later tonight or tomorrow; for now, firm up your arrangements and gird your loins for one very stressful Saturday morning in March.
