Comic Con Palm Springs is returning to the Coachella Valley August 22 – 26 along with a new Palm Springs International Animation Festival. Here is how to get discounted tickets to the events – and you don’t even have to try to track down a coupon code.

A five-day pass can be yours for just $32 – which is a nice discount from the regular price of $50 on Groupon.  You can also score a VIP pass, which regularly goes for $100, for just $65.  Both deals can be found here.

Now you might be saying, wait…five days?  Well, new this year is the Palm Springs International Animation Festival to kick off the week – and those discounted passes get you into that as well as the weekend’s Comic Con event to try to have as much fun as Deadpool does.
