The Post Where I Complain About Emerald City Comicon Again

If you haven't heard 2016 Emerald City Comicon tickets went on sale on Wednesday. 4-day passes sold out in less than two hours and 3-day passes sold out in a little over 24 hours. That kinda sucks.

Now don't get me wrong, tickets to the event are still available. After the 3-Day passes sold out I bought tickets to each day individually but the difference between the 4 day pass and buying individual tickets was about $40 per person, since I'm going with friends and family it cost me an additional $80. The scuttlebutt on the internets is that the new owners of the convention, ReedPOP, significantly reduced the amount of passes available this year to drive people into the more expensive single day tickets. Considering 3-Day passes last year didn't sell out for about 8 weeks it's easy to imagine that is exactly what happened.

I didn't buy tickets right away because I assumed, like a moron, that I had a few weeks to gather my funds. I really didn't want to put tickets on the credit card and we're right in the middle of refinancing the house so I thought waiting until our new budget was set was the smart option. Oh well, live and learn right? I guess next year I'll have to set my alarm to buy tickets the second they're released.

I'm hoping this isn't a bad omen for ReedPOPs management of ECCC. It's quickly become one of my favorite events and I just want it to get bigger and better, not bigger and worse.
