Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience: Featured Guest List

That’s an easy statement for me to make being a Seattle resident, but it’s clear that with over 52,000 tickets sold to the inaugural con that SLCC is truly something special. In addition to the con they held in September they’ll also be holding a “FanXperience” on April 17th-19th at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City.
