Four-day Comic-Con preview passes sold out

Preview night reaches capacity three months after last event.

comic_con_logoIn a testament to the unrelenting increase in popularity of the San Diego Comic-Con International, four-day passes for the 2010 event with preview night access have already sold out with more than 280 days to go until the convention.

In recent years, Comic-Con has become the preeminent entertainment event in the world, with hundreds of thousands of people descending on the Californian city every year. The studios often preview footage to the crowds before it is screened to the press, and the infamous Hall H has been a struggle to get into for the best part of a decade.

As well as popularity, however, another cause for the sellout is the fact that the Con organisers are attempting to limit the amount of people in the centre for preview night, owing to the technical and logistical issues that arose from overcrowding in July. News of this is bound to create a run on remaining passes, so if you were thinking about going to Comic-Con next year, it would probably be worth buying them now, while you can.
