Everyone who intends to purchase, apply, or register for a Comic-Con International badge must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. This includes attendees, volunteers, professionals, trade professionals, exhibitor main contacts, and members of the press. Member ID registration will temporarily close without notice prior to badge resales, so be sure to sign up well in advance.
Because we hope to improve the efficiency and speed of the EPIC online registration system, we are requiring that anyone who wishes to purchase, apply, or register for a Comic-Con badge must sign up for their own personalized Comic-Con Member ID.
A Comic-Con Member ID is free and available to all adult and junior (ages 13 to 17) attendees with a valid and unique email address. Children (age 12 and under) may not register for a Comic-Con Member ID.
Your Comic-Con Member ID will act as your login to the EPIC online registration system during EPIC Open Online Registration and will also add you to our verified special member "E-List." All year-round you'll receive official updates, important registration announcements, access to selected sales, and other information about attending Comic-Con affiliated conventions and events. You may also receive emails from our registration partners regarding Comic-Con registration and from our hotel reservation partners regarding hotel information for Comic-Con conventions and events.
If you would like to sign up for a Comic-Con Member ID, please read the important information below, then click the blue button at the top of the page to be redirected to the Comic-Con Member ID registration system.
Important Terms and Conditions
By submitting a registration for a Comic-Con Member ID, you are consenting to your personal information being retained by Third-parties involved in administrative or operational aspects on behalf of Comic-Con. Your details will be saved for future badge sales and you will receive periodic registration and website administration updates from Comic-Con.
Please make sure the email address you provide is one to which you have long term access.
Should you wish to unsubscribe from the Comic-Con Member ID database, please log in to your Member ID account and select the "Cancel Member ID" option. Please note that unsubscribing will mean you are no longer eligible to purchase, apply, or register for a Comic-Con badge, and will need to re-register should you wish to buy badges in future. If you have already purchased a badge for Comic-Con, that badge will be canceled and the purchase price will be refunded if the membership cancelation was requested before the refund deadline.
Children (age 12 and under) may not register for a Comic-Con Member ID.
Registration for a Comic-Con Member ID does not reserve or guarantee you a badge. A Comic-Con Member ID is required to login to the Third-party Registration Provider (EPIC) online registration system only, and does not increase your chances of purchasing, applying or registering for a badge. Your chance of buying a badge is not influenced in any way by the number of times you register, or the information you provide during registration. Multiple registrations will be deleted.
You must register for a Comic-Con Member ID in order to be eligible to purchase a badge. Also, anyone applying for press, professional, trade professional, volunteer, staff, or exhibitor main contact badges must sign up for a Comic-Con Member ID before they can request to register for their badge. If Comic-Con determines that you purchased or registered for a badge, but did not register for a Comic-Con Member ID, Comic-Con has the right to cancel your badge and refund any amounts paid at Comic-Con's sole discretion.
Although Comic-Con makes efforts to ensure the purchase of badges is easy, efficient, and equitable, Comic-Con makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation that, by logging onto the Web site with a Comic-Con Member ID, you are entitled to or be able to purchase a badge. Due to the limited number of badges and the large volume of Comic-Con Member ID holders, badges are sold as long as they are available. Please be advised that Comic-Con badges sell out very quickly. Not all persons eligible to purchase a badge will be able to purchase a badge. Additionally, Comic-Con makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation that the Web site will function properly throughout the badge sales process. In the event that the Web site malfunctions, Comic-Con will try to rectify the problem in a timely fashion. Notwithstanding, by using the Web site you agree that IN NO EVENT SHALL COMIC-CON, ITS PRINCIPALS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES OR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THE WEB SITE OR THE BADGE SALE AND REGISTRATION PROCESS.
A Comic-Con Member ID has no monetary value. By registering for a Comic-Con Member ID, you agree not to sell or trade your Member ID and further you agree that if you do so, Comic-Con has the right to cancel your Member ID.
