Comic Con 2008: Going, Going, Gone
Plenty to look forward to for people headed to San Diego for Comic Con International 2008, at least as long as you already have tickets.
According to the CCI Web site, single-day passes for both Friday and Saturday are sold out, as are four-day passes.
Sounds like more proof positive of the idea brought up by Laura Hudson in this Publishers Weekly story, that Comic Con has possibly grown too large for its own good.
Even publishers aren’t sure if they’ll make it inside:
Exhibitors are also feeling the pinch as they compete for limited space on the convention floor. At the recommendation of fire marshals, aisles in the giant halls D and E were widened, meaning there’s even less available acreage overall. As a result, many professionals and publishers, including book publishing giant HarperCollins, are still on a waiting list for a booth only weeks before the show opens—and unlikely to come off of it.
