Four-day passes to Comic-Con International: San Diego have sold out, the convention’s website reports.
It has only been in the past couple of years that limits were put on the number of passes sold to the popular event, held this year July 22-26 at the San Diego Convention Center. And while four-day passes sold out last year, they did so within a few weeks of the show’s start.
That four-day passes, which include admission to a Preview Night on July 22, have sold out so early indicates interest in the show is continuing to grow. That should only add to the anxieties of folks waiting for the convention’s hotel reservation system to go online this Thursday. In past years, the scramble for hotels has seen all available rooms scooped up within hours, if not minutes, of their becoming available.
According to the daily updates posted at Comic-Con.org, one-day passes still are available for each day of the show. Based on sales in previous years, these passes also should sell out in advance of the show.
