Jessica Jones Panel At FanX 2016

This weekend was of 2016 Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Experience and both myself and fellow Kyle J. Steenblik were on several panels. I was fortunate enough to be on a panel with two members of The Nerd Dome Podcast, Luke Hunsaker and Charles Prows, along with authors Michelle Witt and Courney Alameda about Jessica […]

Kyle’s adventures at FanX 2015

Kyle’s adventures at FanX 2015

The Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience ran this past January 29 through the 31st at the Salt Palace Convention Center.  This FanX was different from last year in several ways.  The fist being that it was about half the size, with ticket sales limited to about 50,000, and a reduction in guests and panels, […]

Mick Garris Interview Part 2

Mick Garris Interview Part 2

Mick Garris to me is arguably one of the most inspiring and down right nicest person in Hollywood. To me he’s been one of the most inspiring persons in my life. I was lucky to do two awesome interviews with him. The first you can read here. This portion of the interview was taken the […]

Mick Garris Talks About His Career and Previous Issues With Fear Itself

Mick Garris Talks About His Career and Previous Issues With Fear Itself

I chose not to come back to the show and this was before it ever started shooting. So all the rewrites were done after that— in a non-union way. I couldn’t approve of that as a member of the writers guild. I saw the notes come in from network and notes come in from studio. […]

Introducing Evermore Park

Introducing Evermore Park

At this year’s Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience a new, the first, Fantasy Adventure Park was introduced.  Evermore Park, to be built in Pleasant Grove Utah is genuinely unique, and probably the single most ambitious project of its kind I have ever seen or heard about.  The only parallel would have been when Walt […]

SLCC FanX KidCon was fantastic.

SLCC FanX KidCon was fantastic.

Day two of Salt Lake Comic Con’s Fan Xperience started early, which for us grown up types is fine.  However, for the miniature humans we call children the excitement of getting to skip school for the day is somewhat mitigated by waking up around 6am.  The only thing that really helps a serious case of […]

Having Usher Syndrome and attending the 3rd biggest Comic Con in the US

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend FanX, which is a convention here in Utah that was spawned from the success of the 2013 Salt Lake Comic Con. They just announced that for FanX they had over 100,000 passionate lovers of all kinds of genres and divisions in Geekdom. Hell, I finally got […]

Kyle’s Fan Xperience wrapup

Kyle’s Fan Xperience wrapup

My experience in the Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience is a simple one, simple, yet great.  I had the opportunity to experience some new things, see new and unique artwork, and artisanship.  I met many new people, made some new friends, and discovered I need to invest in a pair of very comfortable shoes.  […]

How Not To Convention

How Not To Convention

A strange thing happened this week. I attended a convention and instead of feeling complete bliss at being around other convention goers who share a love for all things geek, I instead felt horribly depressed following my departure each day from the event. This is in no way part a reflection of the convention I […]

Announcing The Superhero 5k

Announcing The Superhero 5k

I had the distinct pleasure of running into the folks from The Superhero 5k at SLCC FanX today and I have to say that it sounds like a fabulous idea. There may already be other similar races, yes that much is true, but this is going to be the only one that coincides on a […]

SLCC FanX Secures Patrick Stewart

Amazing news for attendees!

They did it…holy crap, they did it. In my inbox about thirty minutes ago, I received word from one of the PR directors from Salt Lake Comic Con FanX (which WPR has been greatly enjoying today), that they have indeed secured none other than Sir Patrick Stewart for an appearance at the event this Saturday!

GeekDad Report: Salt Lake Comic Con’s FanX Kid-Con

The Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Experience (FanX) is fast approaching and passes are selling fast.  That means one thing for GeekDads (and GeekMoms), it is time to make a very important decision (assuming you have not already made the right decision).  Do you bring your kids to the Con, or leave them home under […]
