It was never a question that badges for this year's San Diego Comic-Con would sell out. The unknown factor was exactly how long it would take. Not long, as it happens: Tickets went on sale this morning at 9AM PST, and by 10:36 they were all gone.
Not a Misprint
They came, they saw, they...went home in tears. I'm talking of course of all those who tried to get San Diego Comic-Con (Comic-Con International) tickets yesterday. New policies were implemented this year to make the process go smoother and well, it's no surprise it didn't. Tickets for the pop-culture convention sold out in under an hour (a new record) and lots of people were left with nothing thanks to technical difficulties.
Don't Try This At Home
, in a post idea that we totally wish we had come up with first, has been scouring the web for the most desperate ploys to gain access to San Diego Comic Con
. In addition to the usual scalping (with tickets going for up to $300), some people are offering up different, possibly corporeal ideas. Ladies (and gentlemen): this is not how to get tickets for SDCC.
