Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience

I was able to attend the Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience this last weekend. What does Fan Xperience mean? I think it means that because of the success of the first SLC Comic Con they decided to do an encore. The list of celebrities was extensive, and included such people as:

  • Patrick Stewart
  • Nathan Fillion
  • William Shatner
  • Karl Urban
  • Karen Gillan
  • Edward James Olmos
  • Billy Dee Williams
  • Jason David Frank
  • Jonathan Frakes
  • Chandler Riggs
  • Adam Baldwin

I went the first evening for a few hours and basically just walked around. They had panels and celebrity autograph signings, but because of my late arrival, I didn’t participate in any of those. This was the first Comic Con I’ve ever attended.

They say a franchise is only as good as its car, so I guess these are the top franchises.

There were a few good LEGO builds (in my opinion) from the local Utah LEGO group.

I saw a couple really good costumes, and a lot of really terrible costumes. There many local arts peddling their wares, of which a lot was intriguing and fun to see. I think because this was something of a supplemental Comic Con it is smaller than the one that will be happening in September.
