THE ORIGINAL VIP and OTHER PREMIUM PACKAGES
I bought a VIP Ticket Upgrade from the website, does this include a ticket to the convention?
Everyone coming to the AMAZING HOUSTON COMIC CON is required to purchase an Admission to the show. This can be a single day ticket or a 3 day pass. VIP Tickets and Other Premium Packages such as DEADPOOL, STAR WARS, SAILOR MOON, or Original were offered through the official website/Eventbrite—- these included admission to the event. UPGRADES are offered directly from the Amazing Houston Comic Con site or from the staff members at the show- these do NOT include admission.
For VIP and Other Premium Packages, you are being upgraded with key privileges such as early entrance, reserved seating for panels, and special signing times, etc. You will also receive a GIFT bag loaded with specialty items. You will need a General Admission Ticket to use with your VIP UPGRADE.
How does the Early Entrance work for VIPs & PREMIUM PACKAGE HOLDERS?
VIPS will get into the Main Hall of the Amazing Houston Comic Con approximately 15-30 minutes before General Admission. VIP and Premium Package Holders will have their own separate entrance to the convention.
How does the Reserved Seating for the Panels work for VIPS?
There is no need to VIP Members to camp out for extended periods of time before ANY of the General Admission panels at the the convention. There is reserved seating if VIPs come to the Main Theatre Room or the3rd Floor A/B Room, 10 minutes before any panel. After each panel, while the room must clear each time, VIP Members can remain in the room, and move up to improve their seats if desired. If VIP Members come into the Panel rooms less than 10 minutes before, they will be a part of the General Admission seating, which is first come first serve.

Deadpool Package Holders get the front of the line privilege on the Saturday signing session at 2:00pm The Fast Pass is ONLY good for this session. While Rob Liefeld will be signing on both Friday and Saturday, the FAST PASS option is only good for Front of the Line on Saturday.

Star Wars VIP Members will receive front of the line privilege on any signing or Photo Op Sessions with David Prowse. There will be a second line for him for all members with the proper credentials
I Have a Original VIP. Do I Get Priority Line placement from Rob Liefeld, like the Deadpool VIP Members? Do I get priority for Star Wars?
The answer is NO. Each package contains different perks and benefits, based on price, interest, and availability. And while Original VIP Members do not get the FAST PASS/Front of the line during these sessions, Original VIP Members will be the second group of fans getting signatures, before the General Admission.
What do I need my actual VIP BADGE or Premium Badge for?
