Child-To-Junior Validation … and Beyond!

Comic-Con International 2018 Registration Update

Comic-Con 2018 Returning Registration is open to all Comic-Con 2017 paid attendees. First-time attendees, professionals, guest of professionals, trade professionals, exhibitors (and exhibitor-purchased attendee badges), volunteers, staff, complimentary passes, and press are not eligible to participate in Returning Registration.

Returning Registration for Comic-Con 2018

You will not need to validate your Comic-Con 2017 badge number to participate. You may purchase badges for up to three people—yourself included—during Returning Registration. Each person must have their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID, and must be eligible to participate in Returning Registration. You may not purchase badges for others using your own Member ID.

If you did not purchase an attendee badge for Comic-Con 2017, you may participate in Open Registration

To participate in Open Registration, you must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. The Member ID system will close—without notice—in advance of Open Registration. Make sure you and anyone you wish to purchase a badge for has their own confirmed Member ID well ahead of Open Registration, or you may be left at the edge of the galaxy with Emperor Zurg! Not all badges are sold during Returning Registration—there will be badges available during Open Registration.

Did your child attend Comic-Con 2017 and would like to be eligible for Comic-Con 2018 Returning Registration?

Children who attended Comic-Con 2017 with a paid adult attendee that were age 13 or older by September 30, 2017 are eligible to participate in Comic-Con 2018 Returning Registration! To register for eligibility, click here and complete the child-to junior process by October 6, 2017. You will need the physical Comic-Con 2017 child badge to complete the validation process. But you can forget about The Claw, Pizza Planet, and the mystic portal!
