Official Press Release

SAN DIEGO-Comic-Con, the nations largest comic book and pop culture event,

is making the public aware that Saturday admissions have sold out in advance

of the show and none will be available onsite.

"We were pretty sure this would happen, and it has,' said David

Glanzer, spokesperson for Comic-Con. Glanzer pointed out that three-day

admissions (excluding Saturday) and single day admissions for Thursday,

Friday and Sunday were still available though were being snapped up at a

brisk pace.

Three-day memberships allow visitors to attend the show one day early

for Preview Night held the Wednesday before the official opening of the

convention.

Organizers urge early online registration to avoid the possibility of

being turned away at the door. Online registration is available at the

Comic-Con website at www.comic-con.org or via direct link.

Last year over 123,000 people attended the four-day event and crowds

were such that on Saturday of last year, Comic-Con actually had to halt

registration for some time. "This action was taken because the safety of our

attendees is paramount," continued Glanzer, "and the facility never reached

capacity."

Comic-Con International is a non profit educational organization

dedicated to creating awareness of and appreciation for comics and related

popular art forms primarily through the presentation of conventions and

events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art

and culture.
