Salt Lake Comic-Con 2013

Over the weekend, Salt Lake City had its first comic convention, with record-breaking attendance for an inaugural geek fest. At Salt Lake Comic-Con, Stan Lee and William Shatner showed up, along with some lesser-known celebrities, but the highlight of the con was the fans. Because so many fans purchased tickets, the event had to move to a larger convention center– tallying about 70,000 tickets sold and turning away thousands more after the event sold out. The fan energy and enthusiasm was contagious– there were so many costumed individuals happily crammed together and swooning over the booths. We’ll post on some cool stuff we got from the Con in a later post, but here are some of our favorite pictures from the con. Enjoy!
