(Provo Herald) Ever since sparks ignited between FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention and San Diego Comic-Con International over the use of the term “comic con,” there’s been a little turbulence below the surface for defensive and devoted fans of the Utah convention, which regularly provides its guests with a veritable pop-culture paradise.
