Comments range from anger about what sorts of attendees the decision will attract to celebration that perhaps more people can attend.

There are clearly pros and cons to the new approach, but is it really the best course of action?
If you're planning to go to each day of San Diego Comic-Con International this year, get ready to register for five different passes instead of one, catch-all badge for the entire show.
Comic-Con International's organizers have announced its registration and pricing structure for this year's convention in San Diego, and it's a real head-scratcher.

Besides being fashioned as a backpack, this year's swag bags -- featuring images from Teen Titans Go! and Beware the Batman -- come with a built-in cape.
