Let's face it. Each year it gets increasingly difficult to secure the coveted San Diego Comic-Con badge. But there's good news, superhero apprentices! During SDCC, the Gaslamp Quarter becomes a wonder-filled arena of immersive experiences, events and photo-ops to coincide with the convention -- and many don’t require a badge. Here are just a few ways to celebrate your fandom in San Diego without a ticket to the main event.
The four-day event, from July 18 to July 21, 2019, is stacked with guests and panels from top movies and shows. Segments from Marvel Studios, "Game of Thrones," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," and so on, will keep guests on the edge of their seats the entire weekend.
