Comic-Con 2012 Attendee Registration Opens Saturday, March 3rd at 8am PT

The notification emails have begun to roll out today and even though it states NOT to tell everyone that Attendee Registration will open this Saturday, March 3rd at 8am PT, people are doing so. LOL! Good luck to everyone and remember that you (and any additional friends/guests) MUST have a Member ID to purchase a badge. Registration for Member IDs ended on February 28, 2012 at midnight.

Although you are required to have a Member ID to purchase a badge, sharing the above link on a social networking site may decrease your chances of obtaining a badge. Although only those with a Member ID will be allowed to purchase a badge, the EPIC waiting room is open to the general public and if the link above is leaked online, we anticipate that several thousand people who did not sign-up for a Member ID will attempt to access the registration system erroneously.

Make sure you follow the instructions that was provided in your email to purchase your badges. Either click here or go to Comic-Con’s website for info.

Once again, GOOD LUCK and I hope to see some of you there!
