    Awesome! Thank you so much for posting this!

    • Subdivisions says : Reply

      Is there a set time for when William Shatner will be signing autographs?

      • Christopher C. Beebe says : Reply

        I don’t remember about the autographs but he’s having a photo-op session in the 11:00 hour and another in the 4:00 hour on Saturday.

    • M Owen says : Reply

      This guest list is super helpful.

      Now where can we get the list of panels? Is there a map of the con to help us navigate the place?

      I am the person who likes to plan ahead to reduce missing out on opportunities. Everything/anything helps. Please advise and post links.

  2. Evan says : Reply

    So no schedule for Jonathan Frakes?

  3. Megan says : Reply

    Hey! Do you think you could invite recent celebrities like the Supernatural cast, Doctor Who cast, and the Psych gang?

  4. Madison says : Reply

    Where is Mr. Frakes?

  5. Yay this is so exciting!

  6. rhonda says : Reply

    Oh NO!!!! We need William Shatner to be there on Friday too!!! Please??

  7. Jessi says : Reply

    I wish there was more emphasis being paid to COMIC artists instead of celebrities. When you have more then one webcomic artist attending, I will consider coming.

  8. Trev says : Reply

    From what I understand, we are luck to have Shatner show on Saturday.

  9. RJ says : Reply

    No Shatner on Friday? why wasn’t this info given BEFORE people buy tickets??!!!! I asked for this week’s ago and Now they publish this!?!?

  10. RJ says : Reply

    Have you looked into inviting anyone from the three stargate shows? Or other star trek cast members?

  11. Mark says : Reply

    I understand that Balitmore ComicCon is the same weekend but you’ve really got to do more to get some comic artists out to this show. At this point it would be better to call this Salt Lake Pop-Culture Con.

    I’m sure there has to be some Indie/web comic artists that would like to attend. Is there going to be a list of local artists/illustrators that may be in the gaming community and not necessarily in the comics community?

  12. Scott Miller says : Reply

    Here’s hoping for more comic artist/writers

  13. Jason Becker says : Reply

    I heard that Nathan Fillion might be making an appearance. Has anyone else heard this?

  14. Rockasockee says : Reply

    Freakin’ Lou Ferrigno!!! The Incredible Hulk is gonna be there all 3 days!! Now that is super cool!!

    I agree with “jessi”- definitely need more artists to show up if you want to consider this a legitimate comic convention.

  15. RJ says : Reply

    while i respect that some want artist, many of us want more actors actors from popular sci fi shows…..

    • Mark says : Reply

      Perhaps we should start a “pop culture and Sci-Fi Con” then? Though, I would admit being ecstatic over any StarGate guests… You know, there is a new MacGyver comic currently in print. So, by the comics extension, let’s get Richard Dean Anderson to come out to the con!

  16. Jessi says : Reply

    Ok, I admit I would be there for Nathan Fillion, even without more comic artists. There are quite a few webcomic artists in Washington/Oregon now. Many will be exhausted from PAX, but not all of them will be going to it. I would love to see Dylan Meconis or pretty much anyone else from Periscope Studio. Writers….how about Cherie Priest, John Scalzi, etc?

  17. Aaron says : Reply

    Will anyone from Evil Ink Comics be making an appearance? Even if it’s just a booth, I’d love a chance to get my hands on some Kill Audio, Key of Z and Amory Wars material…if you could get Claudio Sanchez there, it’d be even better!

  18. Megan says : Reply

    Well, the San Diego Comic Con has tons of TV and movie actors. Just because it’s called a Comic Con doesn’t mean they can’t/shouldn’t invite famous people.

  19. Ronni Sorensen says : Reply

    My two teenagers and I are just very grateful for the opportunity to attend our first ever Comic Con. We went to one of the first few Color Festivals and it was so small the entire thing was held on the back porch…now it is massive. Just like that it will take community support (and the realization that the first few will not be as big as established Cons) and attendance to get to the point where we will be on par with San Diego or other cities. I, for one, will happily come every year that I’m able ;-). Thanks for creating what I hope will be the start of many more Utah Comic Cons to come!

  20. Will there be any WWE superstars coming??

  21. Jeff says : Reply

    Any chance of Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan showing up for a Deadpool panel? Also, Arin “Egoraptor” Hanson would be pretty awesome!

  22. Cory Loughmiller says : Reply

    Thank you for giving us the schedule of who is going to appear on what day. Now could you tell me when the panel schedule will be up on your website?



  23. Josh says : Reply

    Is there any chance you will have a Robotech guest? PLEASE?

  24. Vivian says : Reply

    You guys should try to invite some voice over folks. Rob Paulsen, Grey DeLisle, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Bill Farmer are just a few that I can think of off the top of my head that would love to come, and they each have giant fan bases.

  25. NB says : Reply

    Any Dr. Who characters to be announced??

  26. Kait says : Reply

    I think it would be freaking awesome of we could get more geek culture celebrities here. Felicia Day or anyone from the cast of The Guild would be awesome. Maybe someone from shows like Supernatural or Doctor Who, even if they only played minor characters would be really neat. I know it’s asking kind of a lot, since these are big shows and this is the first SLC Comic Con, but if you got someone that would be freaking awesome.

    Also, I’m super glad you guys are getting authors. I think think that Heather Dixon (she’s a local artist and the author of Entwined) would be a great addition and might not be too hard to get since she’s local. I also think that it would be completely AMAZING if we could get George R. R. Martin. Other authors from out of state, though it might be harder to get them to come due to travel expenses, would be really great too. Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, Neil Shusterman, etc. I know this is COMIC Con, but I think it also represents geek culture. And what geek doesn’t love reading?

    Also are there going to be booths there were we can buy action figures, comic books, books, movies, movie/tv show replicas, and other things that represent geek culture? I would totally blow a LOT of my money on stuff like that, just saying.

    • Kait says : Reply

      Oh my gosh! If you guys could get the Green brothers, Nerdfighters everywhere in Utah would weep with joy! Hank and John Green would be the absolute best guests EVER

    • Megan says : Reply

      I’m with you, Kait. They need to invite more celebrities from recent times, and not just the “original Batman” and comic book artists.

    • Kait & others,

      My bookshop will be there with a booth full of golden age comics,graphic novels, comic book artists books like Steve Ditko, Walt Kelly, Carl Barks and hundreds more;but also original wordless novels from Lynd Ward, Franz Masereel and others, and everything from fantasy and sci material, including vintage sci fic & horror movie posters, Fantasia ceramic figurines, and a whole lot of pop culture more.

      More importantly, comic icon and legend, Bud Plant is exhibiting with me. Bud Plant has been an important figure in comics-dom since the sixties. He has attended and exhibited at every one of the 42 original comic book cons in San Diego. He founded the first comic book shops in the 70s, Comics & Comics, and together with east coast legend Phil Seuling; Bud Plant and Phil created comic book stores and direct comic book distribution.

      He and partner Anne, will be bringing an amazing selection of comics , sci fic and pop culture material. There is no one more knowledgeable about golden and silver age comics than Bud Plant. Come and pay homage at his booth.

    Is this the complete guest list or will there be more added?

  28. Michele O'Neill Eder says : Reply

    I got the VIP pass :) , does this include a photo op?. Also, Will any actors from Big Bang Theory or other such popular shows be appearing?

  29. Julia says : Reply

    This is really helpful, thanks! Nice that the two authors I want are on different days so I have time to see both!

  30. Jeff Fitz says : Reply

    Would like to see more comic book creators at the con. Also is there going to be any booths selling comics or comics related product? Finally, you really should advertise on the Geekshowpodcast. They are THE final word on geek culture in SLC. Not including them is kind of out of touch. Looking forward to the the show!

  31. Stephan says : Reply

    Will a VIP pass get me a Shatner autograph?

  32. Megan says : Reply

    I’m with Kait. You guys need waaay more actual celebrities. I understand that it’s COMIC Con, but if you want lots of people to go, you’ll do what SDCC does and get actors and actresses from popular TV shows.

  33. Kara says : Reply

    Yes, I would like to know if Doctor Who and Supernatural will be there?

  34. Idris says : Reply

    DEFINITELY need Doctor Who at SLCC…it’s the 50th Anniversary year! Would totally love it if you could get John Barrowman or Matt Smith, but anyone would be fine, it just needs to be represented :)

  35. Ace says : Reply

    The poster on facebook has Adrian Paul… What days will he be there?

  36. Devon says : Reply

    I haven’t seen a request for him yet…but a BIG request for Joss Whedon

  37. kelsey says : Reply

    will Brandon Routh be there? :O

  38. Remo says : Reply

    Will you be posting a photo op schedule any time soon? I’m trying to plan attendance of some non-die hards around the chance to get a photo with their celeb of choice.

  39. don says : Reply

    Are you working on getting someone (or 2, or 3) from one of the 3 stargate shows?
    About any other star trek cast members? Quark of DeepSpace 9 would be awasome….

  40. Jessi says : Reply

    Any word on the schedule?

  41. Malinda says : Reply

    A lot of questions. Very few answers. Is the SLC comic con staff even reading these?

    • Yes we are. Not all quick answers but we will respond to everything, especially after the weekend. Most of us haven’t had a day off in two weeks because of comic con so please be patient. We will answer all the questions.

  42. Bry says : Reply

    Ok – seriously – Is Adrian Paul going to be there???

    The poster on Facebook has him and the announcement for the venue change said he was coming!!

    Confirmation either way would be awesome!!

  43. andy randall says : Reply

    So what time do the doors open on Thursday for the VIPs? I’m coming in a day early, just so I don’t have to fight the traffic.

    • Salt Lake Comic Con says : Reply

      Thursday 3:00pm – 8:00pm
      Friday 11:00am – 8:00pm
      Saturday 9:00am – 7:00am

      For VIP you have an extra hour each day.

  44. Lisa Miller-Carlson says : Reply

    I’m really excited about all this, I know it is hard work that makes days and weeks long. I’ve worked a few Sundance Film Festivals in the past and there is no rest, but when this is over there will be much reward. Thank you fellow geeks for bringing this to SLC!

  46. Jeff says : Reply

    Is there a master schedule of events not just when celebrities are coming. When are the panels? What are the panels planned? When is the Zombie walk? What other events are scheduled. What vendors have committed to coming? Is there a list of companies by booths that have already reserved them so we can have some idea of what there may be to see? Are the vendors having any events? If so when? When is the costume contest? Why haven’t the maps and information been updated to coincide with announcement of the venue change to the Salt Palace? Where are the panels, events, zombie walk taking place? The only information on the website promises celebrities on a given day but does not say anything else. It would be extremely helpful to have such information beforehand so people could plan on making there way to stage c or panel room b to attend the events they wish to attend and to make sure they are there early for seating.

  47. jared r says : Reply

    Who are the dealers selling comics and how many vendors will be there. It looks like this is not a comic book convention but a media showcase. If there are comic sellers I might attend.

  48. Lauren says : Reply

    I don’t know what y’all are complaining about. We are lucky to even have a comic con in utah. And as any real nerd knows. Comic con is well known as a scifi convention not strictly a comic convention. Especially since a lot of the celebs are from shows and movies based on comics. So just quitcha complaining about technicalities

    • melissa says : Reply

      agreed. im just glad there is a comic con close enough for me to attend. im so grateful to these guys for putting in all the hard work to make this possible.

    • Buzzy says : Reply

      No one’s complaining, Lauren. Some of us collect comic books, toys, comic book related merchandise, etc. and will attend for that reason alone. We would just like to have an idea on what vendors will be there. We will await their list of vendors/booths.

  49. Dan Dan says : Reply

    There have been lots of request for more star trek and stargate actors, yet you (comic con) seem to ignor those comments. Why is that? Any chance of that actually happening? (Hopfully more than just saturday)
    It that in the works at all? I know that there peoplee concidering buy tickets if there were a cast member from star– ‘trek’ ‘wars’ or ‘gate’.

  50. andy randall says : Reply

    It looks too have an awesome lineup. I’m hoping Scarlett Johansen would show up. Its still early yet.

  51. Renee says : Reply

    No Walking Dead or Harry Potter??

    This is going to be my first Comiccon ever! I’m super excited and am trying to learn as much as I can about these guys as possible. my dad is helping me out with all the tv show characters, but I’m on my own with everything else. I’m really quite excited so far for all the people who are coming out.

  56. chad says : Reply

    what about some on from the big bang theory

  57. dbr says : Reply

    Still haven’t seen any comic items. Who are your vendors? Where is DC, MARVEL, DARK HORSE, et al? Had been going to SD Comic con for 25+ years tho the tickets now go in 30 seconds. Still quite a lot outside. Great parties too.
    There was a note that you would be announcing any comic vendors etc. Any info on that?
    Any current actors or ones from recent shows? Course having Shatner and Adam West works well.

  58. Ron Wright says : Reply

    are you going to post individual prices for photo op (this person this much etc ) ? if we buy a pre photo op and have some left can we use that towards a different celebrity autograph ? when are you going to have a master schedule for the artist alley ? i know there are more artist than being advertised .

      We will be posting that shortly. We will have a schedule up soon as well. Stay posted.

    Thank you for making SLC’s first comic con a great start. I know that it’s not easy to get so many wonderful guests, and sometimes some get … impractical with their requests. But for what has been done so far, thank you. I can’t wait for this con to grow through the years. :)

    Gini Koch who wrote the “Alien” series, Touched by an Alien was the first book in the series, would be a FANTASTIC addition to your panels. She’s been at quite a few comic cons and I’m disappointed she is not at ours. You can contact her at and her website is

  74. matt says : Reply

    I think Simon Pegg would be awesome, he is Scotty, plus has new movie, not to mention he is into this stuff. If i had one choice I would love Shatner and Nimoy!
    I personally prefer people in the video game industry, and people who make movies, not so much of the ones who are in them, like WETA is so cool!

  84. M. Peterson says : Reply

    My goodness, all the whining and moaning!! Seriously, this is the first year for SLCC, people. Lets face facts…

    1. Comics have pervaded every aspect of popular culture, So this IS a pop culture con. Just because it has the word COMIC in the official title does not mean it has to just be pure comics. I for one am glad of the TV and movie personalities, the authors, and EVERY single guest willing to come to a brand new, untested con.
    2. Its great seeing all the requests for guests, but I seriously doubt we will be getting any of the HUGE names requested this year. Its the first con, and I assume its too risky to hope they (the con itself) make enough to invite the bigwigs. We need to make this con an over the top success before we can start rating the megastars.
    3. Same as above, but for the stars themselves rather than the con. They are not going to be willing to come to an untried con and risk their fees, rep, WHATEVER unless they are sure its worth their time. And again, we are the ones that can show them it IS worth it.
    4. I’d love to see more gaming…board games, card games, RPG GAMES, LARPing (which for me is just the unknown cousin of Cosplay), etc. There are comics based on games, games based on comics, and every other combo you can think of that would tie into comics. Maybe next year :)
    5. Why can I not find any info about hotels associating with SLCC to give special rates? Totally missed opportunity, in my opinion.
    6. Parking info and other such mundane issues being in the FAQ would be great. For those not familiar with SLC or the Salt Palace area it could be confusing or intimidating trying to get there/get around. Just saying.
    7. A list of those appearing in Artist Alley would be nice. Then I know if I’m safe to bring the ol’ debit card, or leave it home for my own safety. :)

    Cant wait to introduce my three little princesses to the other side of life…the geek/nerd side. The pink princess/talking cutesy animal side is getting really old. Must start their indoctrination before its too late.

      Actually in regard to the gaming content, there are going to be quite a few board game and RPG groups there. Hastur Hobbies, Fongo Bongo, Board Game Revolution, 5th Street Games, Midnight Campaign, Eagle Games, and more will have booths in the vendor hall.

      I’m helping out at the Midnight Campaign booth. We’ll have demos of a card game called Goblin’s Breakfast that is fun for all ages. We’d love to teach you and your family if you have time to stop by. =)

    Have any invitations gone out to voice actors like Jess Harnell and such? I’m sure the fans would LOVE seeing the faces of some of the most loved cartoon and gaming characters.

      Jess Harnell has done COUNTLESS voices for both TV and movie. Most notably Wakko in “Animaniacs”, Ironhide and Barricade in “Transformers”, and MANY MANY other characters!

      Might I also suggest the following voice actors…..
      Dan Castellaneta – “The Simpsons”
      Peter Cullen – Optimus Prime in the ORIGINAL 1980’s TV series and the recent movies.
      Dave Fennoy – “The Walking Dead: The Game” (Lee Everett), “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” (Pong Krell), and games like “Mass Effect 2″, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, “World of Warcraft: Cataclysm”, just to name a few.
      Mike Henry – “The Family Guy”/”The Cleveland Show” (Cleveland Brown)
      Trey Parker & Matt Stone – “South Park”
      Tara Stong – “Ben 10″ (Ben Tennyson), “Fairly Odd Parents” (Timmy Turner), many others!
      John DiMaggio – “Futurama” (Bender), “Gears of War” (Marcus Fenix), “Generation Rex” (Boo HaHa), “Penguines of Madigascar” (Rico)

      Those are just a few that I could come up with! There’s some even BIGGER names, like Seth Green or Seth McFarlane, that would be fun to have at the Con. But, that’s a start. I know it’s down to the wire, but hopefully you can get a couple of these fine actors to make it to the Con.

        Still confusing. So the doors are open at 10am if I want to get the psychic reading? Also, the floor plan doesn’t show where the panel rooms, main stage etc. are. I am handicapped, will have a walker and plan to get around best as I can. How will I handle seating for panels?with first come first served I might as well sit at the back or get trampled. Lol I need to have the walker. Any suggestions? I have also heard on good authority that Adrian Paul w/be there Thurs too. Any truth to that? Thx, know your busy.

    • Idris says : Reply

      I was confused by this too-There wasn’t an explanation that The Convention Floor and Panels were different things – It just said that Comic Con doors opened at 4 pm on Thursday, 12 pm on Friday, and 10 am on Saturday. Now there is a statement on some of the pages of the website saying they are different, and events and panels will happen at the times posted, so even though The Convention Floor doesn’t open until 4 on Thursday (3 if you are a VIP), you can get into the building for the panels but won’t have access to the Convention Floor until later.

        • Wendy D says : Reply

          It might be useful to be a bit more descriptive here, SLC ComicCon. This is the first event of this kind in SLC, so folks are naturally a bit confused. I’ve attended dozens of trades shows in my life, so I understand the difference between the Convention Floor and the other events. I think it would be useful to explain 1) what time do the “doors open” for VIPs and for the general admission ticket holders (I’m talking, what time does the actual convention *start* each day—the first event time; 2) explain that the vendor area has specific hours that the “floor” is open. These are not necessarily the hours of the convention for that day. Some folks might think that the Convention Floor *is* the conference.

          Again, remember that you have 25,000 people who likely haven’t done this before. We’ve paid a lot of money, taken time off of work…and just want detailed answers to marginalize the frustration and confusion about what to expect. A bit of educating would be nice here. The answers seem curt and dismissive. Even though I’m an experienced conference go-er..including HUGE tech conferences, I am still finding it difficult to navigate through all of the information. Please take a few extra seconds and provide some more guidance/detail when people ask questions. We’ve got a lot invested in this and want to maximize our time and experiences. Thanks.

          • Teauhna says :

            Wendy, I agree with your observations. I’ve never attended this sort of conference but I have attended various conferences and conventions relating to education and non-profits. I find the format to be similar, regardless of subject matter. In the case of this event, there is a lot that needs clarification, or maybe definition. I think the term, “VIP” has been used to define both the type of ticket-holding attendee as well as celebrity/skilled “attractions”. I think very few people are going to have a good idea of the kind of cash they need to have on them. I get the feeling there will be a large portion of us milling around, trying to figure out where to go and what to do. I’m sure things will clear up a bit once we’ve all gotten in there and had a real idea of what’s in store…but a lot of anxiety is developing within the crowd because of so much that is unknown and unclear. We’re all learning together and I hope we pass the test!

    I looked at the vendor list and did not see Marvel, DC or Image. Do you know where they will be set up? Also Under the Guest Master Schedule it has price options for photo ops or autographs. Some say TBA. If it is blank does that mean there will not be any charges for autographs or photo ops?

      Agreed! Is this the first time for this con? I just moved here so I don’t know if there is a history. if this is the first one the turn out is amazing and the guest list is impressive (though I can think of a few actors/tv people on the con circuit that would be GREAT additions) If this is the first one, then WELL DONE!

    • SGAFan says : Reply

      Just adding… that being said, one thing that con goers appreciate is clear scheduling and timing. Cons are hectic places with lots going on and we all usually have lots of people we want to see. its an exercise in logistics and requires good planning.

      As a con veteran, that’s one improvement I’d strongly suggest is clearer, more concise schedules so people can plan. I guarantee it will make things go MUCH smoother for everyone involved both organizers and con goers. :)

    There are a few scheduling things I’m curious about in regards to the guidebook at .

    Are the ‘Life in Sunnydale’ and ‘Nicholas Brendon’ panels listed from 2-3 on the 5th the same panel?

    (Timing looks fine but mini typo of ‘Battlestar Calactica’ from 4-5 on Friday the 6th)

    Is the ‘Couch Party with William Shatner and Adam West’ actually happening from 6-9 on Friday as listed?

    Also looking forward to any of the items temporarily stored in the 9th actually being put into slots. Thanks!

  161. Ron says : Reply

    I’ve attended a lot of different “Popular Culture” Conventions over a 25 year period… Although I’m really excited about seeing this even finally happen in Utah… Bottom line?

    Not counting Admission Tickets… You’ll need at least $500-$1,000 for all the Actors who want payment for their autographs (even if you bring in stuff by them that you already own), if you want at least 5-10 of them…

    Then, there is the Parking… Not many places where you can park for less than (@) $25 for 8 hours…

    I’m a HUGE fan of TV and Movies… But I’m also a COMIC COLLECTOR… and you know what? After many years of experience in attending ‘Cons (both as a Vendor/Dealer/Fan)… at least the Comic and Book Authors/Artists have NEVER charged a fee unless you want to buy something new from their Table (which means, you get some new stuff, the Autograph is free)…

    My biggest gripe is that all these “TV-Movie” people who are charging at least $30-$70 for an autograph is that… They are probably having all their expenses paid… they attend many ‘Cons during the year… plus they get residuals (I would assume), from the shows/movies they appeared in… so some of these people can make (with 25k people attending at even $10 per autograph) about $250,000 in one weekend just for signing there name… Do they report that income on their taxes? And if they attend just 4 Cons a year, that’s like 1 Million Dollars!!!!


    That is just wrong, IMHO….

    Now, let’s see how long it takes for SLCC to delete this post…

    • Trent says : Reply

      Move on Ron. The guest determines what they charge, not the Con. If you don’t like the price, DON’T get an autograph or photo. No one is holding a gun to your head. Taxes? Are you serious? That’s none of your concern. Enjoy what we’re getting!

    • Teauhna says : Reply

      Ron, you had a point until “blah de blah..taxes” and “blah blah blah…delete this post”.

      • Trent says : Reply

        I don’t agree on any of his points. What they make is their business. If you don’t like the price, DON’T buy! I don’t have enough money to get autographs or signatures, but I’m not going to start crying about it. I’m just thrilled we get a con!

    • BabyBiohazard says : Reply

      I agree with everything you said except for the part re: actors.
      Actors never see that money. that goes to their agencies. I know this because I work cons. I’ve worked cons bigger than SLCC has dreamed of becoming. While it is harsh, a lot of times it’s easy to get freebies. What they don’t say is your first autograph is usually free or discounted, the prices only come in if you want more than what’s offered.
      I’m just hoping the con budgeted out if things go wrong.

    • Val says : Reply

      Ron has a point people, c’mon! He’s not saying he doesn’t like Con. He’s not saying he doesn’t like the guests. He’s not saying he doesn’t like you and your Momma, so relax. It doesn’t have to ruin Con for YOU. Stop taking it so personally. Frankly, I think he makes a great point. I have like 75 bucks to spend myself on this event. And after looking at the schedule and realizing I really can’t afford any autographs I was a little disappointed too. Charging a large fee for an autograph isn’t really a nice thing to do to your loving fans, imo. Hate me if you want, but me and Ron will be there having just as much fun as you, even if we made you question the perfection of this event.

  162. Ron says : Reply

    Trent… I think you have a basic misunderstanding of what I posted…
    1) I never said the Con determined the Guest Autograph/Photo fees… I’m fully aware that the Guests set their own price… What I said was that Writers and Artists have never (in my 25 years of attending Cons) charged for signing a book that a person has brought in, although I also stated that, yes, you can buy stuff from them, but they have never charged an extra fee… It only seems that the TV/Movie Stars charge extra… Am I wrong?

    2) You say that, even though they might make thousands of dollars at just one Con, that it’s none of my business if they pay Taxes?

    D’Oh! I’m a published Writer, Editor and Book Publisher… I know that if I pay a Writer or Artist to work for me, I have to declare that, and they have to report that income… So why is my QUESTION wrong? I’m just asking… When people make $$$, don’t they have to report it to the IRS? I’m simply curious as to whether or not some of these people are actually reporting their “Con Profits” as income, because if not, well, that reduces my opinion of them as honest people… Again, isn’t that a fair question?

    3) I will be attending to have FUN… I’m not rich (been out of work for almost a year) but I was given Tickets as a GIFT because of my love for things like this… So, are you saying that if I can’t afford to attend, I shouldn’t go? I plan on attending for FUN, and I WON’T be spending $$$ I don’t have just for an Autograph or Photo…

    Dude, either you have money to burn, or you just didn’t get the POINT of my post… :D

    Live long and prosper!

    Will there be any Godzilla related events?

    PLEASE, provide a more clear schedule when it comes to the guests. I understand that planning this for the first time must be hectic, but if people take time off of work after paying for tickets to discover that the guest(s) they want to see are only available during hours they weren’t/aren’t able to be there on that day, it’ll be a nightmare.

    Any chance of David Prowse & Peter Meyhew or Lou Ferrigno speaking again?

    Missed both sessions since nothing was announced in the vendor room & the schedule of events was not obvious in the convention center.

    Really disappointed to miss them today.

    BTW really nice staff & well laid out con. But, lack of schedule knowledge & publication of a printed schedule to the attendees in the the salt palace were disappointing.

    Loved ComicCon Day 1. When will we find out info about the Stan Lee VIP event (per the message posted on FB for VIP ticket holders) and if he’ll be doing autographs? Also, I heard that Shatter was going to be in a special location (not the Main Stage). Fact or Crap? Seriously, for day one, you guys did a GREAT job!

    Where the FAQ about the photo-op/autograph vouchers say they’re not restricted to any specific celebrity – are they still restricted by fee ($75 voucher used only on $75 photo-ops/autographs) or could higher vouchers be used on lower-fee photo-ops/autographs? Also, could any voucher not used on one day (assuming it’s not Saturday) be carried over to the next (example: if I don’t use a voucher on Friday, could it be carried over to Saturday if I have a ticket for Saturday)?

      You are smart to ask in advance. Here is how it works (and I know this because I went through it today…and it was a PITA!) You take your paper voucher (pdf) printed copy and go to the “fulfillment center.” This is located very close to the main exhibit hall entrance. If you go down the main escalator and hook a left (toward the bathrooms), you’ll see it.

      What they do at the fulfillment center is give you ComicCon money. It looks like monopoloy money.

      You then take THAT to the Froggy booth in the exhibit hall. This is located way in the back of the exhibit hall…opposite of the doors that you came in….almost against the west wall. It’s closer to the north end of the hall.

      There, you will stand in another line and tell them that you want to buy a photo op with whomever. They’ll take your ComicCon cash and give you a printed receipt with a bar code. Just so you know, if you want the digital image, it is an extra $10.00, and they will email it to you sometime after the show.

      If you were like me, you purchased a voucher based on a specific celeb. Yeah, that doesn’t really matter. When they trade he voucher for Con Money, you have to go re-purchase your ticket anyway. Once you buy THAT ticket, that is what you are locked into…although I have to imagine that there is some refund protocol.

      THEN… come back at the designated time for that star. They seem to be in 30 minute increments. You line up outside of the photo booth (there are people there to direct you). The line moves VERY fast. They will tell you that anything you don’t want in the picture should be left outside on a table. NO cameras allowed in the booth area. The celeb was seated. Scan the receipt. Walk over. Take the picture. Boom, you are done.

      Your printed image is available approximately 90 minutes later, and they set it on a table.

      It is a process.

      I’m very disappointed that the people at the Froggy booth can’t just honor the vouchers. That silly middle step is a really PAIN. I spent about 2 hours today working on this process. You CAN buy all of your photo tickets at once and then just show up during the time of the photo op.

    I’ve purchased a ticket for Saturday only and I’ve also purchased the $40 Photo Op and all I want to do is see Adrian Paul and take a picture with him but I’m not sure how that works. Any suggestions?

    I won a free photo op with Kevin Sorbo that I couldn’t use. I went to the photo op booth and showed them my ticket with the free photo op and they gave me $75 in “comic cash” and told me that I could actually use it for a photo op or autograph with anyone that took them. Of course, Stan Lee did not take them. So I went to use it for an autograph from William Shatner (because Kevin Sorbo was not at his table any of the times I went by) and the volunteer told me that I could only use one of the $10 (or the $5) “comic cash” per autograph or photo (for Sorbo or anyone else) and had to pay the rest in cash…that it said that on the back of the money. Which it did…but which meant I didn’t get (and there was no way to get) the free photo op that I had won :/

  188. Hey. I ran across ones website the use of windows live messenger. That’s a actually beautifully created article. Let me you should definitely take note of that and also resume go through extra of this techniques. Was looking for posting. We’ll unquestionably come back.

    Are any anime voice actors coming? This is going to be my first comic con but from what I understand anime is usually a part of them, right? If Vic Mignogna came my life would be complete – especially cause my friend and I are going as Edward and Alphonse(and another as Envy probably).
    Well, I’m not really into comic books or a lot of popular shows, so I hope some anime VAs come. But even if they don’t I’m sure I’ll have an awesome time. x3 I’m really excited for this!

    Anyone from the Big Bang Theory tv show would be truly so cool! They are one of the sole reasons for comics being so admired!! They would be awesome to attend this event! How about an invite? Thanks!

  194. Good web site! I truly love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your RSS feed which must do the trick! Have a nice day!
