Returning Registration Eligibility Info
Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration was open to all Comic-Con 2018 paid attendees. First-time attendees, professionals, guest of professionals (paid or complimentary), exhibitors (and exhibitor-purchased attendee badges), retailers, volunteers, staff, complimentary passes, and press were not eligible to participate in Returning Registration. Registration for these categories will occur at a later date. 
Please keep in mind that not all eligible attendees were able to purchase a badge during Returning Registration. There were more eligible attendees than badges available.

Comic-Con Registration Codes
Comic-Con Returning Registration
To help restrict ineligible members from entering the Expo Logic waiting room, Comic-Con required that you enter your personal registration code to access the Expo Logic waiting room. If you were eligible to participate in Returning Registration, the link to the waiting room and your personal registration code was sent to you via email and was also available in your Member ID account under the "Registration Info" tab.
Each registration code is good for one entry into the Expo Logic waiting room. Your registration code will authorize one browser and one device only. Do not share your registration code! If you share your registration code with another person or attempt to enter your registration code on multiple devices or browsers, the new device/browser will be authorized and your old session will expire. 
To authorize multiple registration codes for entry to the waiting room, you must enter each code on a unique browser or device. Attempting to enter different registration codes using multiple tabs within the same browser will confuse the registration process and cause your transaction to fail. Remember: One browser instance per registration code!

Comic-Con International Purchasing Badges
Comic-Con Returning Registration
During Returning Registration you could have purchased badges for up to THREE eligible people total, yourself included.
  • Each individual you were purchasing for must have been eligible to participate and they must have had their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID account.
  • You needed the Member ID and last name for all individuals you were purchasing for. You did not need their Member ID password.
  • You could not purchase badges for others using your own Comic-Con Member ID.
The Preview Night badge option could only be purchased if you bought a Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday badge. Preview Night is not a stand-alone option. As in previous years, if you purchase all four daily badges (Thursday through Sunday) they will be automatically converted to a 4-Day badge. You cannot opt out of consolidation.  
Children (age 12 and under) are free with a paying adult. Click here for more information on our Child Badge Policy.
Comic-Con accepts Visa, MasterCard, and American Express only. We do not accept PayPal or other online payment systems. If your debit card has a Visa or MasterCard logo, you will be able to use it for purchase.

Comic-Con Browser Settings
The Expo Logic waiting room and badge registration system was tested on the following browsers. We could not guarantee your results if you used a browser not listed below:
Firefox: Any version
Google Chrome: Any version
Internet Explorer: Version 11
Safari: Version 7 or later
Microsoft EDGE: Any version
Attempting to purchase badges using multiple tabs within the same browser will confuse the badge sale process and cause your transaction to fail. Only use one browser tab when trying to purchase badges.
Your browser should have JavaScript and cookies enabled to function reliably with the Expo Logic waiting room. These features are usually enabled in the default configuration of most modern web browsers. If you do not have these features enabled, it is possible that the waiting room application will not function properly.
The Expo Logic badge registration system is not formatted for iPad, tablets, or mobile devices. Although mobile devices can be used to purchase a badge, Comic-Con is unable to guarantee that the registration system behaved as expected using a mobile device.

Comic-Con The Fine Print
While Comic-Con has made every effort to make the badge purchase experience fair for everyone, it is possible that problems outside of our control could result in the system not working as planned. The possibility exists that anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-malware software may aggressively block browser cookies, JavaScript, or other operation of modern web applications. It is also possible that user error, specific hardware problems, local ISP issues, or simply the extremely high level of demand beyond our control may result in your computer and/or browser not behaving as described above. While Comic-Con has done extensive testing, we make no guarantees that your efforts will result in a successful badge purchase or that you will be selected for a registration session regardless of when you enter the process. Admittance to the waiting room does not guarantee you a registration session. 
As always, we are sincerely grateful for your continued support and interest in our event. We know that purchasing a badge can be a challenge and we are constantly exploring options to improve your online registration experience. We will continue to offer deeply discounted rates for juniors, seniors, and active-duty members of the military, as well as one of the most generous free child badge policies in the comic convention industry.
