Notice: ReedPOP Fights NY Comic Con Ticket Resellers With New Ticketing Process

Readers of this website know full well about just how much we enjoy attending the massive NY Comic Con that is held each October over at the Javits Center. I’ve attended since 2010 and have made it a point to go for all four days (well, once it became four days) and newer readers to the site can verify this statement HERE for our historical comprehensive coverages. Each year NYCC gets bigger and bigger and with that popularity the level of people scalping tickets for the event for ridiculous prices has grown and now the folks at ReedPOP are aiming to squash this practice as best as possible with a new “Fan Verification” process. The full and massive press release that I received a short time ago can be read below the graphic. Get a cup of coffee or your preferred beverage and get comfortable because this one is a doozy with a lot to absorb.
