Salt Lake is Getting a Comic Con!

A few days ago, we learned that Salt Lake City, UT will be getting our own Comic Con. Having attended San Diego Comic Con (unaffiliated with SLCC) and other geek cons, this makes me so excited to get a bigger con here in our own backyard. The con is an expansion of the GEEX Gaming and Electronics Expo and it will be held September 5-7, 2013 at the South Towne Expo Center and announced guests include Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk), Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules:The Legendary Journeys) and more. There will also be vendor booths, cosplay, and other typical con things. I can’t wait.

Do you plan on attending Salt lake Comic Con? Let us know in the comments.

Quite frankly, Tim is a 17-year-old trapped in a 30-something-year-old’s body. He loves good TV – by which he means something with a good serialized storyline – and movies, and spends many of his nights immersed in a gloriously complex video game. He’s a firm believer that Lost was the greatest show ever made, and that includes the ending. Oh, and Tim is a staunch defender of the Ewoks and their place in the Star Wars canon. You can listen to Tim on the Whatever Makes You Weird podcast, check out his opinions about upcoming movies in our Trailerpark Tuesday segments, and find his reporting about cons and all things nerd-ish on Comic Con Tips.
