San Diego Comic-Con tickets go on sale Feb. 16, require Member ID numbers

Tickets to Comic-Con International — better known as San Diego Comic-Con — go on sale at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday Feb. 16.

The event celebrates and showcases elements of pop culture including (but not limited to) comics, video games, anime, manga, animation, toys, collectible card games, science fiction, film, television and more. This year's San Diego event will be held at the San Diego Convention Center from July18-21.

In order to purchase a badge/ticket for Comic-Con, attendees, volunteers and professionals will have to first sign up for their own personalized Comic-Con Member ID. This ID will act as a login to Comic-Con's EPIC online registration system and limits registrants to one ticket per person to curb scalping. Those who purchase or register for a badge without first registering for a Member ID risk having their badge canceled by Comic-Con.

The Member ID site will close to new registrations and changes on Feb. 12, 2013 and will not re-open until tickets go on sale Feb. 16, 2013. Having a Member ID does not guarantee a ticket.

Ticket prices for adults range from $24 for single-day attendance on a Sunday to $175 for a four-day pass with access to Preview Night. For more details on ticketing, visit Comic-Con.
