Comic Con Badge Sales Sold Out; Fans Twitter Tweet Sadness

Comic Con Logo big 300x300 Comic Con Badge Sales Sold Out; Fans Twitter Tweet Sadness Comic Con four-day and single-day badges have sold out and it took just one hour a 40 minutes for that to happen, and while not equaling the record sell-out pace of 2012, it reflected the fact that Comic Con has outgrown its space arrangement in San Diego.

According to UT San Diego, which broke the story, the online purchases started at 9 AM, and by 10:40 AM, that was it, all were gone. In 2012, badges were sold out in one hour and 20 minutes.

that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Comic Con got slammed once again.

The twitter hashtag #comiccon and #sdcc are filed with sad Twitter tweets from fans who are upset they may not get to go to Comic Con for 2012.

Here’s some of the tweets:

That last tweet is really sad, because it means there were so many visitors to the website that it was down to pure luck and blessings if you got in at all.

Wild.

Stay tuned.
