Official Press Release
SAN DIEGO – Comic-Con International, the nation’s largest comic book and pop culture event announced that Sunday admissions have sold out.
“I guess this was bound to happen, but it’s still surprising,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for the non-profit event, “For the first time in our 38 year history, Comic-Con has sold out of Friday, Saturday and now Sunday admissions.”
Because of capacity concerns during last year’s Comic-Con International, organizers made a concerted effort to address potential overcrowding.
“One way to anticipate attendance was to encourage early online registration,” continued Glanzer “which progressed much quicker than in previous years.” Pointing out that while registration was closed for a time last year the facility never reached capacity.
Comic-Con International’s efforts at early registration presumably will help them better control crowd issues at what has become the largest comic book and pop culture event in the United States.
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.
