Only 1000 2-day tickets up.

I 100% think this will sell out relatively quickly, they haven't done single-day tickets yet so they may be holding some back for that. 1000 + 500 EB Tickets is definitely not max capacity though.

Edit: Sitting at 750 available! Looks like it'll be up a little longer than I had anticipated at first. I'll keep an eye on inventory and post when it looks like things are getting scarce. The e-mail blast hasn't gone out yet though, and minimal press so far.

For those that have gone - what's your main draw? I've read that there are panels and movie screenings at Alamo (some free and some for extra $$?), and ofc the main floor for the artists. I'm considering going, just want a better idea of what it's mostly about. I'm very familiar with the venue, so that at least tells me there isn't TOO much space to work with.

Main draw for me is grabbing exclusive prints that won't make it online and my interest in unwrapping/observing how Mondo works as a brand.

Pretty sure they don't have free screenings because the screenings include a print or vinyl, so I believe it'll be ~$100 per movie. Screenings in the past have sold out instantly. They have free panels - but in the past panel spots are booked online ahead of the con and sell out relatively quickly as well.

I am just waiting on one day tickets. We are planning to go Saturday. we are more casual about Mondo, but love seeing all of the artists (and the panels are always interesting). We have found that we don't need to go both days, but if you are a hardcore Mondo fan, it is worth it. It's local for us, and we can't say that about many things, so we definitely take advantage.

My favorite thing I ever got at MondoCon is my limited Scott Pilgrim print signed and numbered (we saw him doing it while we were in line to pick ours up) by Bryan Lee O'Malley.

Thanks for the info! Looks like we may try out one day and see how it goes. I'm guessing you would have to have a pass/badge for the same day you'd want to attend a screening?

Yeah, you have to have the matching wristband for the screening. I think they only did a couple last year - but hopefully this year they can expand and do few more than usual.

Last year tickets for the screenings were basically open to the public went they went on sale. It would make a lot of sense for them to let ticket holders get the first grab at them but I'm not sure if they'll change the system this year.

Well, last year there was no MondoCon. They took a year off. But in 2017, as in 2016, you HAD to have that days tickets/wristband to actually attend the screening. There was nothing stopping you from buying them with said ticket, but come show time, they check.

And just like their other hyped drops, the big MondoCon screenings are botted and sell out in seconds. Good luck!!

The show is in Austin...so I hope thats where your flight is to!
The convention is downtown, not in their small studio.  I use uber or to get from the airport to my hotel then typically scooter around beyond that.

Cheap place to stay....there will be a few hundred of us sleeping in line.  Bring a chair or a sleeping bag and no place needed!  (though I typically just get an Air BnB).
Sunday night....Ill be at the Screenings assuming I can get tickets again.  Think the only screening I have missed the last 3 mondo Cons was the Mystery movie and glad since it was VVitch.
