OMG, it’s that time of year again. Time when all the convention traveling nerdlings prepare for San Diego Comic Con.
To the uninitiated, Comic-Com is the world’s largest annual convention of everything and anything about comics, the comic book industry, as well as sci-fi, adventure, horror film, illustration, anime and more. I really can’t sum up the entirety of SDCC in a mere sentence or two. Lets just call it a pop culture palace, or, in short, nerd mecca. If you’re a nerd, this is your home.
So…mark your calendars because on February 16, tickets for San Diego Comic-Con 2013 will go on sale. 9 a.m. PST is the time and the official Comic-Con site is the place.
Tickets range from $175 for the full four days, plus preview night, to $24 for just Sunday. The event takes place July 18-21 at the San Diego Convention Center. Visit this link for more information.
If you’re intending on going, I highly suggest you be serious with your ticket purchasing. Don’t fuck around. Tix sell out quick, like in seconds. In fact, last year, there were multiple issues on the SDCC website. Servers were crashing left and right. People waited in queue, got a ticket in their cart, but got bumped out and lost their transaction.
I imagine similar frustration can be expected this year. Point is, don’t be a procrastinator. Don’t be one of those people that purchase a scalped ticket by a sketchy guy in a van down by the river.
Be prepared to fight and load up on some chill pills.
