Comic-Con International: San Diego, colloquially known as San Diego Comic-Con, or SDCC, is a yearly pop-culture convention that seems to have a life of its own. What started as a small comic book convention with 145 attendees in 1970, has grown to a massive gathering that now sees roughly 126,000 on its show floor. There’s just one problem, much like the space travel frequently found in the stories attendees love, not everyone gets to go. But not for lack of trying.
Tickets for this year’s SDCC sold out in about an hour, creating a new record. And that’s with a brand new member ID system that perhaps cut down on initial demand. Whether you were a fan, professional, or press, you had to create a personalized member ID long before the tickets actually went on sale. If you didn’t, you definitely weren’t attending SDCC this year. But although this system was a vast improvement over years past, it still had issues. For one, SDCC’s own link did not work how links are supposed to work.
