David Glanzer, the public relations director for Comic-Con International: San Diego, has released the current attendance figures for this year's show over at http://www.comicbookresources.com

96,300 attendees at the four day event.

7,700 exhibitor badges issued

104,000 total, a new attendance record.

1500 press passes issued

6500 seating capacity in Hall H, the largest auditorium in the convention center.

460,000 square feet of space in the exhibit hall

7 Eisner Awards won by DC Comics, tops among individual publishers.

355 days until Comic-Con International 2006.

6 number of times I was slapped by Superfly for stealing his some of his raisinettes.

1000 ton air conditioning unit installed at the convention center specifically for comic-con.

18 degrees below zero in the exhibit hall every morning during the show. At least, that's what it felt like. :evil:

104,000 number of people who cheered when a crane came and removed the 1000 ton air conditioning unit.

12 number of times the otter put on a raincoat, sneakers and sunglasses and flashed poor, innocent old ladies.

Perv.

That's 15 times. You weren't around for the last 3.

Plus, I worked on our nightly con coverage in the nude.
