It's almost that time again; New York Comic Con will be here before you know it, and fans have been waiting for months for information on this year's installment. The one thing that has been asked continuously is when tickets will go on sale. While they didn't give an answer, today's announcement delivers some big changes for the massive East Coast convention.

Fan verification makes its return, and if you created a profile last year, it will carry over for 2017. These fans will also get a first crack at pre-sale tickets. Those that didn't make one will have to create a fan verification profile when registration opens on April 19. The biggest news to come from the New York Comic Con camp is the elimination of four day and three day passes. Since the Javits Center will be under construction at that time, space from the popular convention will be limited. This won't be the first time they've eliminated passes; last year, they got rid of VIP passes.

The last thing announced is that tickets will go on sale on the weekend (Saturday or Sunday) instead of a weekday. If you have something to say about the situation, you can submit questions at inquiry@nycomiccon.com or leave a comment on their Facebook page. They will hold a special Facebook Live Q&A session on Monday at 3:30 p.m. EST. You can check out our coverage of last year's New York Comic Con here.
