Comic-Con 2011 Four-day Passes Sell Out

Comic-Con, the large annual convention that has become a must-attend for film and comic book fanatics (and the industries that serve them), sold out of its four-day badges early Saturday afternoon. Tickets went on sale Saturday morning.

Single-day tickets are still available for the event, which is taking heat from fans after its ticketing vendor, Ticketleap.com, crashed multiple times Saturday.

"We're obviously not happy with this morning's events," the official Comic-Con Twitter account tweeted Saturday after the topic became a trending topic (#sdcc) on the social networking site.

Fans experienced slow load times which prevented many from securing the multiple-day passes.

RavenCrow tweeted,"I'm in total nerd rage about this #SDCC nonsense. I know I shouldn't be, but this was a horrible mess that wasted half of my Saturday."

Another frustrated user, THE_HART_ATTACK, wrote, "4 hours on @ticketleap and I still can't get any @Comic_Con tickets.

While Saturday morning proved tough going for many hoping to score four-day badges to the event where Hollywood studios have increasingly upped the ante when it comes to unveiling exclusive trailers and more, many were eventually able to secure tickets.

Shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday, the official Comic Con Twitter account noted that four-day badges were sold out and that only one day tickets were still available.
