If you are interested in attending Comic-Con 2019, we encourage you to sign up for a Comic-Con Member ID well in advance of any registration event. The Comic-Con Member ID system will close - without notification - prior to any badge sale.
There are many ways to attend Comic-Con depending on your status in the industry (attendee, professional, press, etc...), but the first step for everyone is to sign-up for a Comic-Con Member ID. Anyone who wishes to register for or purchase a badge for Comic-Con 2019 must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. The Member ID system will close, without notice, in advance of any badge sale.
A Comic-Con badge is required for entry to any Comic-Con event. This is the physical badge (with your name on it) you must wear at Comic-Con at all times.
Additionally, a Comic-Con Member ID account is required to purchase, apply, or register for a badge for Comic-Con. The Member ID may act as your login to the online registration system when badge sales begin. Without a Member ID you will not be able to access the online registration system and purchase a badge, nor complete a press, professional, or volunteer application.
Comic-Con International does not sell "tickets" to our event. Do not attempt to purchase a paper ticket from a third party.
Badges for attendees are sold during two events: Returning Registration and Open Registration. To receive information on either event, you must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. Click here to sign up for a Member ID today! We strongly encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, bookmark Toucan - The official blog of Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim - for badge sale date and time announcements.

No. A Comic-Con Member ID is required for all attendee badge purchases. If you would like to purchase a badge for a spouse, child, friend, or member of your family, they will need their own valid and confirmed Member ID to complete the purchase. Make sure your friends and family sign up for a Member ID well in advance of any registration event. The Member ID system will close - without notice - prior to any badge sale.
You will need their personal Member ID and last name to purchase a badge for friend or family member. They must also be eligible to participate in the sale. Please make sure that everyone in your group has signed up for a Member ID and confirmed their email well in advance of the next badge sale.
Anyone may register for a Member ID - they will not run out. Please note that duplicate email addresses are not allowed and each person may only have one Member ID. Duplicate Member ID registrations will be automatically deleted. If it is found that you have registered for more than one Member ID, Comic-Con reserves the right to automatically cancel all of your Member ID accounts and refund, less a 10% processing fee, any badge purchases made by those accounts.
By requiring a unique email address for each Comic-Con Member ID, our hope is to increase the speed of the online registration process, prevent duplicate registrations, and prevent scalpers from selling badges at inflated prices. Our hope is that the Member ID system will allow more fans to purchase badges for this very popular event.
Children do not need to register for a Member ID to receive a badge. You may register a child (age 12 and under) onsite for free in the Registration Area.
Children age 12 and under are not allowed to sign up for a Comic-Con Member ID. To accommodate the transition from child to junior (age 13 - 17), we have set a static date to determine who is considered a child for Comic-Con 2019. If you are age 12 or under on July 31, 2018, you do not need to buy a badge for Comic-Con 2019. You may attend as a child. If you are age 13 or older on July 31, 2018, you must create a Member ID and purchase a badge for Comic-Con 2019. Please click here for details.
You may use MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. We do not accept PayPal or payments using multiple credit cards.
Please visit the Member ID login page and select the "Click here if you can't find your Member ID or Password” link. Enter the email associated with your Member ID account and you will be sent an email with your requested information.
If you are not receiving emails from Comic-Con, it is possible that you have selected to “opt-out” of email communication. To receive email notifications, sign in to your Member ID account and click the “OPT-OUTS” option on the “My Account” tab. Make sure you have not checked the “Email Opt-Out” box. If you have selected to opt-out of email notifications from Comic-Con, you will not receive important registration information, and you should change your preferences as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, because of increased interest in Comic-Con and limited space at the San Diego Convention Center, we have had to cap attendance. We honestly wish we could accommodate each and every person who would like to attend the show. While we are making strides to increase space by utilizing hotels and outdoor venues, the problem of attendance is one that all of us continue to work on constantly.
