Official Press Release

SAN DIEGO-Comic-Con, the nation¹s 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, “and 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.
