SATURDAY SOLD OUT @ SDCC

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Press Release

Comic-Con, the nation’s largest comic book and pop culture event, is making the public aware that Saturday admissions have sold out in advance of the show and none will be available onsite.

“We were pretty sure this would happen, and it has,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for Comic-Con. Glanzer pointed out that three-day admissions (excluding Saturday) and single day admissions for Thursday, Friday and Sunday were still available though were being snapped up at a brisk pace.

Three-day memberships allow visitors to attend the show one day early for Preview Night held the Wednesday before the official opening of the convention.

Organizers urge early online registration to avoid the possibility of being turned away at the door. Online registration is available at the Comic-Con website at www.comic-con.org or via direct link.

Last year over 123,000 people attended the four-day event and crowds were such that on Saturday of last year, Comic-Con actually had to halt registration for some time. “This action was taken because the safety of our attendees is paramount,” continued Glanzer, ³and the facility never reached capacity.”

Comic-Con International is a non profit educational organization dedicated to creating awareness of and appreciation for comics and related popular art forms primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.

Newsarama Note: This announcement comes after the organization has announced that its Four Day Memberships have sold out as well.

Update: In a weird, but not unexpected sidenote, SDCC four-day passes are stating to show up on eBay.

(Wow. Well, guys, I guess we're gonna need a bigger convention center next year. How does Comic-Con International: Anaheim sound?) :shock:

How long do you have to wait in line to get the bracelet whcih allows you to wait in the 2nd line...

This is insane, but my wife waited in line for 90 minutes on Friday to get the bracelet to get a better spot in the line to buy the new Harry Potter book.
