Comic Con is Utah's Biggest Convention Ever

Do we love Batman and Captain Kirk, or what?

Utah's first-ever Comic Con convention set a pair of attendance records.  It was the best-attended Comic Con gathering for any U.S. city, in its first year to host the event.  It was also the most-attended conference, of any type, in Utah history.

Organizers say 70,000 to 80,000 people attended the downtown Salt Lake event, on Saturday only.  It was also extremely busy on Thursday and Friday.

Fire authorities say the Salt Palace Convention Center became so full Saturday, they had to stop allowing people to enter.
