There has been an announcement from ReedPOP regarding the status of badges from the recent on sale day. This comes from their official Facebook Page which is also linked at the close for your convenience.
UPDATE: All badge types are now sold out. We’re moving forward with existing capacity limits at this time. We will continue to follow NYS requirements and as guidelines around large events are updated closer to October, we will alert all of you if more badges become available. You will also be able to reserve the badges you’d like to buy through our Official Badge Exchange once that opens, details available at NYCC21.com/Lyte.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told this news doesn’t surprise me at all because on a good day the NYCC badges sell out fast but after a pandemic where everyone was under lockdown for a year and a few months the demand for any kind of in-person event was going to be a hot item. As many also know, ReedPOP announced some time ago that badges and access would be less than usual based on the necessary Covid-19 precautions and restrictions that they have to face. Folks who’ve ever attended one of these events know just how crowded they can be so it will be interesting to see if social distancing is even possible. If we end up attending it will be our 11th go-round but it will not be our first time back in the Javits Center since the pandemic began. The massive event space was a vaccination hub for many months but now has returned to its usual function and we are set to attend both the Summer Fancy Food Show and the New York International Auto Show as media before the New York Comic Con happens. Fans of those particular shows should tune into all the socials and site for “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” since that is where the coverage will be. Okay that’s all I have to say about this, I hope a lot of our audience managed to get tickets for the event and we hope to see you all there come October.
Shameless Plug: During the course of the pandemic, I repurposed all of the photo galleries shot from New York Comic Con 2016-2019 and uploaded them to our Official YouTube Channel. We invite you to revisit these fun times starting HERE and hope you will spend a little time on the channel and give us a subscribe so we can reach more milestones.
