@ rhinoceros - The convention you speak of was a comic book covention, but it
wasn't s "ComicCon" of this nature. Just like CONduit was a Sci-Fi
Fantasy and Comic's convention. Same with the "Life, The Universe and
Everything" convention held in Orem/Prove for some time. ComicCon is more
of a pop culture and comics convention. It's unique. Especially given the
number of people and the quality of the talent they had attend. 70,000 to 80,000
just Saturday alone. That's Art's Festival numbers.
Thank you for the coverage, but this was not the first ComiCon held in SLC at
the Salt Palace Convention Center. The first was in 1991, organized by Matt
Alexander of Captain Salamander's Atomic Comics (Provo) and Kelly Moyes of
Dr. Volt's Comic Connection (SLC).
