This year’s con slate is fast getting nailed down for many people and we’re hearing the usual rumors, some of which we’re investigating. One which doesn’t appear to be a rumor is that as it was last year, pro reg for New York Comic-Con will be VERY early this year! The following letter has been making the rounds:
Free Registration for Professional Creators has been available online since December and will be cutoff on January 31. All Creators will be free until February 15, and then after that they’ll need to go through the exhibitor or publisher to get their badge.
The early cut-off caught some people by surprise last year, but with all the semi-pros in NYC we can understand the cut-off. Anyway, if you are a pro and want to go, get thee over to this link ASAP. Don’t say The Beat didn’t warn ya!
