There was once a time when attending Comic-Con International in San Diego could be a relatively impulsive decision; get time off work, make the trip, buy tickets at the door. Even though that was only a few years ago, it seems like some sort of quaint view of the distant past worthy of a DC Archive Edition.
But here’s some good news: Comic-Con International “memberships” (admission for this year’s San Diego convention) have been completely sold out for months, but a limited amount of additional badges went on sale at noon Pacific time today. No, they’re not jamming more people into the already suffocating San Diego Convention Center, it’s all folks who snatched up a spot early and ended up unable to go.
Better news: Even though that was more than three hours ago, at our last check (just a few minutes before writing this very sentence), there’s still memberships available, as utterly mind-boggling as that may seem. Adult, junior and senior/military four-day memberships inclusive of preview night are still gonezo, but 4-days without preview night are up for grabs, as well as individual Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday memberships.
This surely won’t last for long, though, so if you want to attend this year, act like, now, here. And “now” now, not “tonight when I’m watching The Bachelorette” now.
UPDATE, 3:36 P.M. PACIFIC TIME: Whoop. Re-checking after this blog went up, it looks like all the 4-days, preview night or no, are gone. Individuals are still available for all four days.
UPDATE, 7 P.M. PACIFIC TIME: Saturday is gone, daddy gone. Thursday, Friday and Sunday badges remain.
