15 JUNE 2018
Remember when you used to go pick up your badge in the Sails Pavilion? How it felt so specifically Comic-Con to walk into that big, airy room and show your ID and get your badge and then your books and bag? As much as I like getting our badges mailed to us, picking up our guides and bags at the Marriott or wherever has never felt the same - so it's pretty cool that we're headed back to the Sails for that part of our SDCC routine.
Oh, and yes - our badges are headed our way. I know we're all nervous about thieves/freak mishaps but badge mailing mostly went smoothly in other years so I'm sure we'll be good this year. If your badges are going to a friend or vice versa, be sure to keep in contact about it without being annoying; it's good to check in with everyone just for reassurance sake. And you're covered in any case, because if your badge gets lost or absconded with, you can just contact CCI and they'll deactivate it and issue you a new one onsite.
You'll notice this year's pins include a special Astronaut Toucan version; if you really want that but get the standard pin, or vice versa, you can buy the one you want at the Con.
It's happening! Comic-Con is almost here.
