There seems to be a general mystery among the uninitiated as to how one "gets" to go to Comic Con. Glitches, heartbreak and sudden good fortune all prevail for different people in unpredictable ways.
Then CCI (Comic Con International) hosts an online Pre-registration Day (usually for people who attended last summer) and then an Open Registration Day for anyone with a Member ID.
Anyone with a Member ID who's 16 or older can volunteer at San Diego Comic-Co.
You don't need any kind of training or know-how, and you'll get into the Con for free the day of your assignment.
If you want to get your hands on an exclusive or just pillage the Exhibit Hall in its most abundant state, this is your night.
And while it's much more crowded than it used to be, this night is also more navigable for people with mobility issues.
Creative workshops are liberally sprinkled through all four days. You'll need to stand in line to pick up your badge AND to get into big panels, and unless you have a pre-badged friend holding your spot in the Hall H line, you can't do both at once.
So if you really want to see Saturday's Ballroom 20 panels, buy Friday as well.
