(The Daily Herald) – As time ticks down until FanX: Salt Lake Comic Convention’s 2019 April convention, the guest list is multiplying almost as much as the ticket sales and fan enthusiasm for the two-day spring event According to event founder Dan Farr, he and co-founder Bryan Brandenburg are constantly “trying to make our event broader.”

“We want to add new experiences, not just keep it being the same thing,” he continued.

With that sentiment comes the Monday announcement of two new guests pegged for the convention: “Wonder Woman” Lynda Carter and “Shock Rock” godfather Alice Cooper.

Carter has an impressive history with the big screen and even on television, with a recurring role on “Supergirl” and lead roles in “Sky High,” “Super Troopers” and the 2005 film “The Dukes of Hazzard,” not to mention her time as Diana Prince, Wonder Woman herself. But that’s not all Carter, a former Miss World USA, has to bring to the table when it comes to talent — her time at FanX will center on a concert, with a limited number of photo ops and autographs available to fans in conjunction with it.

“(Alice Cooper brings) a nice dimension — we like to add variety to our event and kind of go outside the norm,” Farr said in an interview with the Daily Herald on the announcements. “He absolutely is somebody that adds a new dimension, just like Lynda does with her music. Wonder Woman fits right in … (then) you add the dimension her music brings.”

According to Farr, it’s been at least four or five years since he first reached out about getting Carter to the Salt Lake fan-centric event, but conventions aren’t usually on the schedule for the actress and musician.

“She’s not somebody you see typically out there doing these things,” Farr said. “One of her challenges is when she meets fans she wants to spend good time with them and doesn’t want to do anything where she feels her fans are being shortchanged at all. She’s starting to learn that even if fans only get a moment with her, it means so much to them … just a brief moment they wouldn’t have if she hadn’t put herself out there.”
