Comic-Con 2013 Tickets: How You Can Still Get Passes For This Year’s Event
2013 Comic-Con tickets are sold out. That's the bad news. But all hope is not lost for those dying to attend Comic-Con - there are still options for scoring passes to Comic-Con 2013 and we're going to show you how.
2013 Comic-Con tickets went on sale this February and all passes - including single-day and four-day passes - sold out in 90 minutes. Considering over 120,000 people are expected to attend Comic-Con 2013, that's pretty damn fast. Comic-Con tickets are, ostensibly, sold out at this point but there is still one option for fans who really, really want to make the trip.
Every year there are people who buy Comic-Con tickets and then realize they won't be able to attend. Comic-Con will make these returned badges available for resale sometime after the May 15, 2013 refund date. Comic-Con won't say officially how many tickets will be available but expect a short supply. Pay attention to this site for information on when the official Comic-Con badge resale takes place and if you're lucky, you'll score yourself a Comic-Con ticket.
What you'll want to do prior to the Comic-Con ticket resale is to make sure you have a Member ID, which is essentially a unique username that prevents people from hoarding multiple tickets. You can sign up for a Member ID here and you'll need that before you purchase any Comic-Con 2013 tickets (or tickets for any future year for that matter).
Below are the listed Comic-Con 2013 ticket prices:
If you don't have any luck with the official Comic-Con ticket resale, you may need to try some more unofficial means. We don't advocate using eBay or Craigslist as both sites flag these sales and remove them from the site and Comic-Con is aggressive on both buyers and sellers in the Comic-Con ticket black market. You could always try to buy one secondhand but you do so at your own risk.
We wish you luck and hope to see you at Comic-Con 2013!
