I didn't get tickets to Comic-Con. Went onsale at 4am my time, stayed up until 7am trying to get through and the site was crashing that whole time. It is apparently now sold out of DAY PASSES. I knew I wasn't going to get a 4-day pass, but last year the single-day passes were onsale for MONTHS. I know because I actually bought some in the hope that I'd be able to go.

I'm full of like, a lot of self-loathing right now. I'm really scared and upset and don't know what to do. This is pretty much my only chance to attend, and it fit so perfectly with the trip, and I am so desparate and confused.

Has anyone been before/been through the ticketing process? I know they release refunds, but I don't know about them releasing second batches of tickets in general. It just seems bizarre to me that the day tix would be availale for months last year and sell out instantly this year. Is this because there was such fuckery with the onsale date?

Can anyone offer me any advice at all?



eta: mildly consoled by the Guardian Author. Volunteering is an option I would LOVE to take, but Comic-Con seems like such a massive undertaking that I wouldn't even know where to start with various organisations. If you can recommend any, let me know also. Himself has DM'd me a contact to start with, so that at least makes me feel like I can Take Action.
