San Diego Comic-Con 2018 Badge Prices Revealed

With Creative Professional Registration set for next week (what?!), can Returning Registration be too far around the corner?

Comic-Con International seems determined not to repeat last year’s very late badge sales, with President John Rogers mentioning in Talk Back this year that he anticipated Returning Registration would take place in “the winter” again. While there’s no word yet on an exact date, we do have one piece of the puzzle: Prices.

Badge prices for 2018 have increased slightly, with adult badges ranging from $63 for a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday badge (up from $60 in 2017) to $42 for a Sunday badge (up from $40 in 2017). All four badges can be purchased for $231, or you can add $45 for Preview Night to make it $276.

Prices for junior attendees (13-17 years old) are roughly half the adult prices, and attendees 12 and under are free with a paying adult.

Here’s a look:

We’ll let you know when we hear anything about Returning Registration (the badge sale for those who were general attendees in 2017) — but our money is on early-to-mid November.
