Salt Lake Comic Con 2017 – Day 1

Okay, day 1 of Salt Lake Comic Con is in the books.

SLCC16 LOGO-indigo

Pretty good, so far, I must say. It feels like there’s more room to move around the Salt Palace somehow (always a major issue), the entrances seem to be moving well, and the app is functioning as it should. If you know me, you’ll know that I’ve never been a huge fan of the app in the past, but this time, so far….

Very weird. I find I have ZERO to point out on the negative side today.

And that’s a good thing.

To be fair, there were a few celebrities that showed up over an hour late today to begin signing autographs, but that was because their flight was late.

Hardly the fault of Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg, and honestly, a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things.

Speaking of Dan and Bryan, I was chatting with our (virtually) adopted daughter, Brittany, and her husband in the celebrity area, when Dan came up to me and asked how I was doing, and commenting that I was lucky I had gotten my photo with Dick Van Dyke in Phoenix earlier this year, since he had to forego doing photos this weekend. I explained that my wife was a bit disappointed, but that we had gotten our photo purchase converted to an autograph for tomorrow, so she would at least get that.

These things happen. What can you do?

Regardless, Dan went about his business and Britt looked at me and said, “Is that–?” with a look of shock on her face.

I forget that, as personable as Dan and Bryan are, most attendees haven’t dealt with them for the extended amount of time (or in such a visible–and vocal–way) as I have, so they’re still DAN and BRYAN, up on high, running a great event for our enjoyment.

So Dan, know that you still inspire awe in your guests.

And rightfully so.

Tomorrow I get to try out the photo ops for this event, with Michael Rooker and John & Joan Cusack.

Should be a heck of a day.

Though I think I’m going to beg off cosplay for the rest of the weekend and just be comfy for a change.

See you around the Salt Palace.
