Attendance swells at Salt Lake Comic Con

SALT LAKE CITY — More than 100,000 people turned out for Salt Lake City Comic Con over the weekend.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the convention takes first place as the biggest in state history after breaking its own record in September.

The springtime event, known as FanX, was the follow-up to September Comic Con, which drew a crowd of 70,000 to 80,000.

Show producer and Salt Lake Comic Con founder Dan Farr in a statement praised the city for what he said is an avid fan base.

Many convention-goers sported the costumes of their favorite heroes.

Organizers say the three-day event, which began Thursday, shows off the best in movies, television shows, gaming, sci-fi/fantasy and comic books.

Last year, the convention drew about 75,000 attendees, with more than 52,000 tickets sold.
