Hear Me and Rejoice! Returning Registration is Upon Us!

Comic-Con International Registration Update

Oh snap! The Expo Logic waiting room for Comic-Con 2019 Returning Registration will open at 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on Saturday, October 13, 2018 for registration code authorization. The badge sale will begin shortly after 9:00 AM PDT.

To participate, you’ll need your personal registration code, the link to the Expo Logic waiting room, and an Infinity Stone. They will be sent to you via email and will be available in your Comic-Con Member ID account under the “Registration Info” tab at least 48 hours before the sale. Your registration code will keep out pesky, domineering Titans (we see you, Thanos) and anyone else not eligible to participate in Returning Registration.

The waiting room will close for entry at 9:00 AM PDT on Saturday, October 13, so make sure you arrive before then. If you don’t authorize your code before 9:00 AM PDT, you risk getting trapped in the Collector’s vault! Not even the Time Stone will be able to help you once the waiting room is closed. (Well, maybe it can. But good luck getting your hands on it!)

Thinking about buying badges for Thor and Spider-Man? Well, you can purchase badges for up to three people – yourself included! Just make sure that they are eligible to participate or you might embarrass yourself in front of the wizards. Each person must have their own Comic-Con Member ID and must be eligible to participate in Returning Registration. When buying for others, you will need be perfectly balanced, as all things should be, by having their Member IDs and last names ready. And another thing ... you may not purchase badges for others using your own Member ID or your made-up names. Sorry, Dr. Strange.

We caution against joining a badge buying group with anyone in the Black Order. Comic-Con is unable to intervene on your behalf should Ebony Maw post your registration code or personal information online. Remember, each registration code is good for one entry into the waiting room only. Do not attempt to enter your registration code in multiple browsers. 

Lastly, all badges will be shipped to the badge shipping address on file in your Comic-Con Member ID account as of May 13, 2019. We are unable to ship badges to an international address (not even Wakanda). International attendees will be able to pick up their badge when they arrive onsite. We encourage you to review your shipping address on the “Contact Info” tab in your Member ID account well ahead of the May 13, 2019 deadline.

Remember, there are more eligible attendees than badges available during Returning Registration. Not everyone who enters the waiting room prior to 9:00 AM PDT will be selected for a registration session. For important information about eligibility, the Expo Logic waiting room, browser requirements, and registration codes, please read all of the information here. If you are unable to purchase a badge during Returning Registration, you will be able to participate in Comic-Con 2019 Open Registration on ... I am Groot.

What? You don’t speak Groot? It was an elective on Asgard!
