If you were one of the unlucky pop culture enthusiasts who was defeated by Comic-Con International‘s EPIC Registration system back in February, don’t give up yet.

Though four-day badges are still sold out, several thousand single-day badges are now available for resale via drawing, Comic-Con announced Monday. Passes for the annual entertainment expo sold out minutes after registration opened, but a limited number of tickets (including 3,100 much-coveted Saturday passes) are up for resale because of returned and canceled badges and a reduced allotment of reserved badges for certain Comic-Con departments.

The convention — to be held July 18-21 at the San Diego waterfront convention center — is a gathering of some 130,000 professionals and enthusiasts in the realms of sci-fi, fantasy, video games, comics and horror. The expo features panels, film and TV screenings, portfolio reviews, merchant booths and a masquerade, and in recent years has expanded to take over San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter.

Comic-Con’s registration system is notorious for glitches and server crashes, as well as for selling out in minutes after opening. Registrants who have already set up a Comic-Con Member ID account but have not already purchased four-day badges or Saturday passes are eligible to enter the resale drawing. Registrants must log in to their Member ID accounts and click the blue notice that reads, “Click here to enter a drawing to be eligible for the Comic-Con 2013 badge resale.” The random drawing closes at 10:59 p.m. PDT on Wednesday.

Those selected can purchase badges for themselves and for one additional guest who also meets the criteria for the drawing (valid Member ID without a four-day or Saturday badge). Winners of the resale drawing will be notified via e-mail by June 17.

Single-day badges for Thursday, Friday or Saturday are $42 for adults and $21 for military and juniors. Sunday passes are $24 for adults and $12 for military and juniors. Children 12 and younger attend free with a paying adult.
