Last minute notice: Comic Con Salt Lake City is coming up next week on Thursday, September 1st until Saturday, September 3rd at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.
This will be my first real Comic Con I will visit. I visited the Super Con in Miami last year and I am really excited to attend the Comic Con in Salt Lake City this year. Unfortunately, it will be a busy week at work and I try to make some time to visit Comic Con.
There will be a lot of celebrity attendees and my favorites are so far:
- William Shatner is best known as Captain James T. Kirk from Star Trek. Shatner also starred in TJ Hooker, Rescue 911, The Practice and Boston Legal. He is also a musician, author, director and celebrity pitchman.
- Lou Ferrigno was the Hulk in the original Incredible Hulk TV series. The Hulk creator Stan Lee said Ferrigno was born to play the Hulk. Ferrigno was also in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
- Michael Rooker is best known for his role as Merle Dixon in The Walking Dead and Yondu Udonta in Guardians of the Galaxy. He’ll reprise his role of Yondu in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in 2017.
- Jim Beaver is a fan favorite as the gruff but tender-hearted Bobby Singer in Supernatural. He also appeared in the western dramas Justified and Deadwood, and the gothic horror Crimson Peak.
There will be much more celebrities. You can find a list of all the attending celebrities on the Salt Lake City Comic Con website. I am super excited. Besides the celebrities, I am excited to see all the amazing fans and cosplayers. I really enjoyed with what precision and skills they build their costumes.
My camera and Osmo will be always on hand to bring you footage of the events and happenings at Comic Con and around.
If you are in town, I recommend you to visit Comic Con as well. You can buy your tickets online now and save some money. Most tickets will cost $10 more if you buy it directly at the box office at the event.
