“We say this all the time, but this year will be our biggest and most exciting convention,” said Dan Farr, Founder and Producer of FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention. “The celebrity guests we announced today and since November are incredible and we have many more guests to come. We’ve built such a strong reputation that celebrities are calling us and asking if they can come to FanX, and so many that have been here really want to come back. We’ve worked hard to build this reputation and recognize that we couldn’t have done it without our incredible fans.”

New this year - organizers announced the formation of the League of Utah Volunteers (LUV), created to give fans an opportunity to volunteer and give back to the community.
