As you all know, Comic Con Badges went on sale today during Open Registation. As usual the process was pretty standard: log in sometime between 8 and 9 a.m., enter your Member ID registration code, and then pray to the Comic Con waiting room Gods that you got through. Comic Con as usual runs pretty efficiently and keeps you updated in the waiting room as things sell out. Of events with this much demand Comic Con is one of the most efficiently run events, which makes the experience pretty smooth. I hope all of you out there trying to get Comic Con badges for Comic Con 2017 were able to snag them. By the time I was able to get in only Thursday and Sunday badges were available so I will be attending Thursday of Comic Con 2017. As usual, Comic Con badges are incredibly difficult to get, especially for Comic Con Preview Night or Saturday Badges. Here's when all the different badges sold out:
Comic Con 2017 Preview Night - 9:27 a.m. (27 minutes after Comic Con went on sale)
Comic Con 2017 Saturday Badges - 9:43 a.m. (43 Minutes after Comic Con went on sale)
Comic Con 2017 Friday Badges - 9:51 a.m. (51 Minutes after Comic Con went on sale)
Comic Con 2017 Sunday Badges - 10:10 a.m. (1 Hour and 10 Minutes after Comic Con went on sale)
Comic Con 2017 Thursday Badges - 10:12 a.m. (1 Hour and 12 minutes after Comic Con went on sale)
Thus all Comic Con 2017 badges sold out in 1 hour and 12 minutes.
At that point we got in for Thursday badges so I'm not sure when the rest sold out, but it is likely soon after. Now that you know you will be going to Comic Con, it's time to snag your hotel and plan your trip. Be sure to check out our Comic Con Hotels page and our Comic Con Guides to help you plan.
