ONE MORE TIME: Comic-Con Tickets Go on Sale February 5

Delayed almost as many times as the Spider-Man musical, registration for Comic-Con International is now set for Saturday, February 5 2011. Attendees are advised to visit the official registration page beginning at 9 a.m. Pacific Standard Time to book their tickets, which are available as four-day passes for $105 ($52 for children) or single-day passes for $37 each ($18 for children). Passes that include access to Preview Night are sold out, but may become available closer to the event due to cancelations and so forth. The nation’s biggest pop culture convention, Comic-Con International will take place July 21-24 in San Diego, California.

Registration was originally set to begin in October, but technical difficulties on the part of EPIC, Comic-Con’s contracted ticketing partner, resulted in a big fat fail that was repeated in November. A test run with a new ticketing service, TicketLeap, was successful in selling 1,000 Comic-Con tickets in December, although not without some hiccups. Presumably, the kinks have been ironed out and Comic-Con is confident that attendees can buy tickets with a minimum of hassle.”2010 was the fourth straight year in which we reached a self-imposed attendance capacity,” said David Glanzer, Comic-Con’s Director of Marketing and Public Relations in a statement released back in November. “With the impressive roster of talent we already have lined up for 2011, we expect that enthusiasm to continue and for the 2011 show to be one to remember.”
