Wow! Are we really only 31 days away from this year’s Salt Lake FanX (as always: screw you, San Diego)?

This line up is, well, amazing (to be redundant).

With a half-dozen or so guests still to announce, take a look at the “big” celebrity names:

We’ve known about Ben Affleck, Tim Curry, Evangeline Lilly, and Dick Van Dyke seemingly forever, which is a pretty sweet list on its own, but since then… wow.

David Tennant, Chuck Norris, Paul Reubens, Karl Urban, Ian McDiarmid, Rainn Wilson, Jennifer Morrison, Michael Rosenbaum, Mark Sheppard, Gaten Matarazzo, Barry Bostwick….

And then, seemingly within the last 6-8 weeks, they’ve gone crazy, announcing such guests as Brent Spiner, Lou Ferrigno, Paige O’Hara, Robby Benson, Kevin Sorbo, Femi Taylor, Austin Amelio, Steven Ogg, Tom Payne, Tom Hopper, Tricia Helfer, Renee O’Connor, Lucy Lawless, Caity Lotz, Katee Sackhoff, Brandon Routh, Michael Rooker… Freaking Meat Loaf is coming for the love of–

And just a couple of days ago: Dave Bautista.

Are you kidding me?

And that’s not even counting the comic artists and writers, cosplayers, authors, panelists….

It really is incredible.

I’ve been to events of equally big “name” behind them that haven’t had half of this quality of a line up celebrities.

And yet, some people still aren’t happy. Ridiculous, right?

But, hey: maybe those last 6-ish guests will make them happy.

Who know?

See you next month.
