Emerald City Comic Con still has Thursday, Friday and Sunday tickets available

16 FEBRUARY 2019

Emerald City Comic Con ends a month from today - but they still have tickets for 3 out of the 4 days. That's weird, isn't it? Especially given the rapacity with which full tickets sold out (pretty much immediately.)

What I think it means: that even though outsiders like me creep into the ticket sale like an invasive species, we're still limited in number - and locals are more leisurely about getting their tickets. I know several people in the PNW who plan on going for at least a day, but aren't obsessive about getting the whole show. They'll get their tickets when they have a better idea of their schedule.

Or maybe it means that with the advent of the Lyte Ticket Exchange, people feel more confident about their ability to pull down all four days. Maybe their confidence is well placed; I have no idea. In other years, people turned to StubHub or Craigslist or other places to watch for ECCC tickets, and those often came with a hefty markeup - assuming they were legit.

All this said, it's safe to assume that tickets will sell out for ECCC - so don't dawdle too long before buying. The next 4 weeks will go by in a flash.
