(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.

The press conference also brought with it a slew of new guest announcements including Warwick Davis (“Harry Potter,” “Willow”), Aimee Garcia (“Lucifer,” “Dexter”), Pom Klementieff (“Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2,” “Oldboy”), Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone of “The Office”), Tony Todd (“Candyman,” “The Man from Earth”), David Bradley (“Harry Potter,” “Game of Thrones”) and Adelaide Kane (“Teen Wolf,” “Once Upon a Time”) more than doubling the guest list for April’s FanX (…)
