(Herald Extra) SALT LAKE CITY — Hello friends. Gary here, delivering my in-person account of the greatest event-filled weekend in the Salt Lake Valley. But first, a worthwhile thought:
Is this the year that Salt Lake City’s Comic Con finally comes to terms with the inevitable truth? Strangely out-of-place celebrity guests, a slew of absent artists and booth regulars, and virtually no new features are each breadcrumbs on a trail that leads not home, but perhaps to the ledge of a very tall cliff.
It’s not to say that fun isn’t to be found at the event, or that one’s hard-earned savings couldn’t be well spent on the convention and numerous nerd-ish offerings waiting inside, because for most who attend the value and excitement is surely still there, the pulse of pop-culture beating strongly with a mighty, calling rhythm … GEEK-GEEK, GEEK-GEEK, GEEK-GEEK.
