Attention: A NY Comic Con 2017 Announcement Is Here!

Hey my fine feathered friends, it’s Saint Patrick’s Day today and that means everyone is going to have a little “luck of the Irish” as I share this broadcast from the desk of NY Comic Con mastermind Lance Fensterman. The massive event will be on sale before you know it and its always something that causes a bit of a feeding frenzy in terms of the ticket purchasing so these details are good to know in advance. Check it out and I’ll return with a couple of thoughts afterward.

“NYCC Fans,

It’s that time of the year again and we’ve got a few NYCC updates for you. (Nah, sorry, no dates for on-sale yet!)

First: We will be requiring Fan Verification again in order to buy a NYCC 2017 ticket or have one purchased for you. Fan Verification will open on April 19, 2017 for anyone who didn’t create a profile last year. Anyone who fills out a Fan Verification profile will have access to the limited quantity ticket on-sale at a later date. If you’re new to NYCC and have questions about this process or just need a refresher, check out our FAQs.

Second: Anyone who created a Fan Verification profile in 2016, your profiles will carry over in 2017. Hip-hip hooray! As an extra thank you, we’re giving fans with NYCC 2016 profiles first crack at a limited number of tickets with a special NYCC 2017 ticket presale. Only fans with NYCC 2016 Fan Verification profiles will be able to purchase tickets during the presale or have one purchased for and assigned to them. Quantities for the presale will be limited and if you’re unable to get the tickets you want, you’ll have another chance during the general on-sale happening at a later date.
