Comic Con Runs April 17-19 In Salt Lake City
Downtown Salt Lake City will attract legions of strange creatures during the next few days, as the huge Comic Con event takes place at the Salt Palace. Many actors and performers will be in custom, as will many fans. There will be plenty of opportunity to see, learn and participate.
The Deseret News has these two articles about the convention. Below are the headlines and then excerpts.
Narrowing down the staggering amount of options at this weekend's Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience can be a daunting task. The FanX event will play host to over 100 pop culture celebrities and provide over 200 hours of entertainment experiences, ranging from Q&A panels to dancing lessons, and from the cast of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" to the wildly popular actor Nathan Fillion, who was brought to the convention by the voice of FanX's Facebook fans.
From “The Walking Dead” stars Chandler Riggs and Jon Bernthal to the Monkees’ Mickey Dolenz to the Power Rangers and the recently announced appearance of the 1966 Batmobile, the Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience will attempt to appeal to fans from many demographics.

The convention released this interesting tidbit:
Salt Lake Comic Con 2013 was a record breaking event. In Utah, the previous largest convention in the state’s history was 27,000. Our first year Comic Con was attended by over 72,000 people. It was also the largest first year Comic Con in North American history and we sold over 50,000 tickets. On April 17-19, 2014 expect the event to be better in every way.
