    I can’t seem to find my confirmation barcode for my badge. Does anyone know how to get that resent to myself or if they can just look me up at the con?

  • Jon Allen

    They usually send out another e-mail just before it starts. However, I am pretty sure they can look it up when you get there if you have your comic-con ID and password as well as a photo ID.

  • They do NOT send another e-mail. Official rule is that you need your barcode – and you may have to beg and plead if you don’t have it.

  • Rusty Patti

    Send an email request and they’ll resend it.

    If you haven’t already, please put a free food guide up and easy to locate on the site without having to dig around. Once at con, I can’t go fishing for info bits spread out everywhere.

  • Bryon Bauer

    You will not have to beg and plead. They would prefer you have the bar code.. But if not, they don’t deny you your badge. But you have to have picture ID. My wife and I have lost our bar code several times and been fine. I’m sure you’ll be good. Don’t sweat it and have a great time at Comic-Con.
