Comic-Con International 2011 Totally Sold Out

Thinking about going to Comic-Con International 2011 this July in San Diego? Too bad. Unless you’ve managed to score tickets already, it doesn’t look like it’s gonna happen: all 100,000-plus spaces for attendees are now completely sold out.

Following a couple of attempts that resulted in technical meltdowns as several zillion people attempted to buy tickets, Comic-Con managed to get their tickets on sale for real on Saturday morning, February 5. TicketLeap’s servers were slammed for most of the day (reportedly, their “we are currently over capacity” image appeared regularly). Four-day passes for the convention were sold out by around 2 PM that day; by 6 PM, all the individual day passes were gone, too.

If you do happen to have a ticket, of course, the next hurdle is finding a place to stay in San Diego–there are many fewer hotel rooms in the county (let alone the convenient downtown area) than there are people attending Comic-Con from out of town. The date of this year’s “Hotelmageddon,” as it’s sometimes known–the day when rooms reserved by Comic-Con go on sale–has not yet been announced.

In the meantime, tickets for this year’s New York Comic-Con, to be held October 13-16, have gone on sale earlier today. As of this writing, they are not yet sold out.
