Los Angeles Comic Con 2023: Early Bird Tickets & First Guests

by Neil Bui

Los Angeles Comic Con has announced the official on-sale of early bird three-day passes and VIP tickets for this year’s event from December 1-3. This early discount will only be available for a limited time and is guaranteed to be the lowest available pricing. The first guests to be revealed for Los Angeles Comic Con 2023 include voice actor Tom Kenny and original Power Rangers Amy Jo Johnson and David Yost.

“Every year we work to bring back aspects that fans loved from prior years, while adding new guests and fandoms to the show to make our Con a truly diverse celebration of pop culture,” said Chris DeMoulin, CEO/GM of Los Angeles Comic Con parent company CEI. “In this time of strike in Hollywood, we want to emphasize that we support unions and union members, and their right to strike for better working conditions.  We are working with the talent and their representatives to make sure that all of our booking, panels and promotion this year fully conform with SAG-AFTRA guidelines for conventions.”

With the ongoing strike by members of SAG-AFTRA, it is worth diving in to understand if the presence of talent as guests at Los Angeles Comic Con abides by the guidelines of the strike.

Sean Astin, a past/present guest who is involved with SAG-AFTRA, offered the following statement:  “As I write this note, members of SAG-AFTRA, the labor union that represents your favorite performers, is on strike. As a member of the Negotiating Committee and on behalf of our 160,000 members, we want to thank each and everyone of you who have supported us in our effort. We work under many contracts, and must determine if a company we wish to work for is a “struck” company. As of now, the union has worked hard to carve our rules for participating in regional fan conventions. At this time, L.A. Comic Con, a permissible “non-struck company” has pledged its support for the union and its commitment to abiding by the guidelines.”

Los Angeles Comic Con 2023 is sure to have even more guests compared to last year’s event, which drew over 126,000 attendees, making it the largest event to date.

“Beyond the segments of the industry involved in the strike, we are continuing to expand our comic industry guests, our gaming offerings and activations, adding more Anime elements, and making sure that there is something for everybody over the course of the three-day event,” DeMoulin said. “We have always been a “By Fans, for the Fans” event, so we will have plenty of exciting additions to announce in coming weeks. We are all affected by this strike, and hope for a fair and speedy resolution – but in the meantime, as an independent fan convention, we’re in a great position to respect the strike and its guidelines, and still bring L.A. fans the kind of eclectic, exciting and star-studded L.A. Comic Con they expect and deserve.”
