When Comic-Con comes around each year, not only is there an overwhelming rush of blockbuster news, but there’s also a huge drain on our wallets.

San Diego Comic Con, established in 1970, has been the premiere destination event in the comic book industry for decades, and in the past ten years the event has become a rallying point for TV and movie fans as well. The event has grown to the point where the words “Comic Con” automatically imply San Diego’s event, even if you’re in a city with its own con.
For years rumors have flown of Comic Con moving to another city. Anaheim, perhaps, or even Las Vegas. Any move is now delayed a few more years, however, as a deal is in place to maintain San Diego as the event’s home through Comic Con 2018. That’s good for the Comic Con organization, too, as the rent they pay for the Convention Center is insanely cheap. Read More »

If you’re going to San Diego Comic Con International 2015 and planning to attend a presentation in the infamous Hall H, here is some information you should know: Comic Con will be bringing back their Toucan Tracker wristbands which were introduced last year. The wristbands intend to discourage line cutting. Here is what Comic Con says of the process:
Toucan Tracker wristbands give attendees flexibility based upon their priorities at Comic-Con. If you wish to get a front section seat in Hall H, you are welcome to wait in line overnight once you receive your wristband. If seat placement is not a priority to you, wristbands allow you to reserve general seating in Hall H and come back in the morning. Toucan Trackers are essentially a way for you to know that you have a seat in Hall H, whether you are physically in line or not!
