Comic-Con is shaking things up for 2014 badge sales.  No more 4-day badges—only single day badges will be sold, although you can consolidate a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday badge into a 4-day badge on site.  Additionally, you can only attend Preview Night on Wednesday if you purchase a badge for all four days Thursday-Sunday.

Comic-Con is working hard to improve the online ordering system with plans to open preregistration in early 2014.  Those who attended Comic-Con 2013 are allowed to preregister, and will be e-mailed at least 48 hours before sales open with badge preregistration instructions.  Those who did not attend Comic-Con 2013 can participate in open online registration later in the year.  Hit the jump for pricing details and more information on how to secure a badge.

Check out the Comic-Con site for more details and to set up an online account.  Note that you’ll need you Member ID and your 2013 badge to qualify for 2013 preregistration.

Below are the 2014 prices.  Last year, adult single day tickets were $42 Thursday-Saturday ($3 less) and $24 on Sunday ($6 less).  A 4-day badge with Preview Night was $175 in 2013, while the equivalent badges this year cost $200.

    I actually like this because it gives other people an actual chance to buy a ticket to see the show. Comic Con is the biggest con in the world. It has become such a huge monster, a Nerdvana if you will, and the online hoops people have to jump through to buy tickets is ridiculous. That, coupled with the fact that the convention would sell next year’s tickets to current con attendees at Comic Con made it a more difficult prospect for anyone remotely interested in attending the show to actually get a ticket. I tried, last year, to get a ticket online and it was just nuts. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I will never be able to go.

    With that in mind, I simply attend the smaller shows and that has been a blessing due to the fact that there are less attendees, less stress and more one-on-one time with creators whose work I admire.

      I got a 4day-ticket last year, first time trying so I wouldn’t say it’s impossible !
