Comic-Con A-No-Go!

3 Mar

Comic-Con

Less than one and a half hours. That’s how little time it took to sell out ALL of the San Diego Comic-Con badges. We all started out around #38,000 in the queue and figured we would get at least one day passes. As we approached #10,000 – zup! Gone. Pisser.

“Depression’s got a hold of us;” Black Flag says it best.Yes, yes … we’ll get over it! Just give us a moment to mourn. Cripes.

We are displeased.

    Pretty much the same story for me. Oh well, I’ll be going to Wonder Con in a couple of weeks. What Comic Con was 10 years ago.
    Strangely, I’m not that disappointed. Comic Con has grown to be such a zoo in recent years, and almost all the major panels are on YouTube.

      So. We’re thinking of going to WonderCon as well. Sort of a runner-up prize, we suppose. We haven’t been in years — what’s it like now? Easy to get in to various panels and events? Is it what Comic-Con was like about 20 years ago? Do tell.

        Oops. You already answered the “what it was like x years ago.” Worth it, then?

        WonderCon is much smaller than Comic-Con and retains more of a focus on comic books, although I suspect being near Hollywood this year will bring out a bit more movie and TV presence. So, yes, it is more like Comic-Con of yore.

    [...] So, we sat on the phone for hours hoping to get tickets for the Comic-Con in the first round. Earlier this month, we were pre-registered, we’d fully checked our account, we’d pulled out our credit cards — basically, we were loaded for bear. We even linked up via cell phone to make sure one of us would get in and buy tickets for all of us. Well, you know the results of that fiasco. [...]
