Part of the fun that has been Comic-Con has been the ability to just pig put on an entire weeks worth of fanboy goodness. But while in years past you’ve been able to buy a badge for the whole weekend, the folks at Comic-Con have altered the deal and we can only pray they don’t alter it any further.
According to their official site, San Diego Comic-Con 2014 will allow for only single day badges to be purchased which means if you want to attend the entire convention, you’re going to have to shell out for individual day badges.

Now, before you throw that tub of cheese puffs across the room like I did, things aren’t all that bad. If you buy all four days worth of passes, don’t worry about not being able to get in because you misplaced one. The folks at Comic-Con have assured fans who buy all four single day passes that they can be exchanged for a single pass — sort of like before. The only difference is that you have to pay individually, there is no discount for buying a pack of badges and there’s no guarantee that you will be able to buy a badge for each day.
While frustrating to some fanboys, this is welcomed news to other, less intense fanboys who have been shut out of the mecca known as San Diego Comic-Con because badges aren’t available. This should allow for a more eclectic mix of fans to attend the convention and, aside from making more money, will open things up to a wider audience.
