Comic Con 2011 Sold Out

Comic Con 2011: Sells out in record time!

We recently put a up post advertising that Comic Con 2011 tickets were about to go on sale. We’ve also been tracking Comic Con’s inability to keep their servers up.  Yes, Comic Con’s servers failed again like the limp phallus of an old geriatric.  We LOVE Comic Con,  but find it a bit sad that the biggest pop culture convention in the world can’t keep their servers up.  Sounds like they need some cyber viagra.  According to Comic Con’s official Twitter feed, all 2011 4 day passes are all gone. As little as 3 years ago, one was able to buy a 4 day pass in May or even June, my how things have changed. My wife and I got in line at last year’s Comic Con to buy passes for 2011, and preview night was already sold out. I’m anticipating that the line for 2012 Comic Con tickets will be very very long… bring a bucket.

2011 4 Day passes are all gone...

Note: Thursday and Sunday single day passes are still available as of Saturday night.

Here is Comic Con’s twitter feed describing the clusterfuck that went down today.

  • @Comic_Con Comic_Con We’re obviously not happy with this morning’s events. We are trying to find answers and get to the bottom of this.
  • @Comic_Con  Comic_Con Badges are being processed at an extremely slow rate and, while you may receive a sold out message, many badge types are still available.

So do you still want to go?  I know a sure fire way to get tickets to all 4 nights, including preview night… yep… you still have a chance.  Check back here soon, and I’ll fill you in on a little known secret.

    hey comic-con, I make enterprise level web apps for the second largest university in the world. Give me a call and I’ll call a few buddies and we’ll work this out.
