Salt Lake Comic Con was pretty awesome. There were a lot of flaws that needed to be addressed, but it was a first-year convention. They will learn from what they did wrong this year. I hope. Including NOT overselling by far too much. It was insanely crowded, to the point where I hid in panels and completely avoided the main floor today. A lot of people waited in line for hours because the fire marshal wouldn’t let the con admit any more people until other people left.
That said, I had a totally amazing time. I had a VIP pass… and it was worth every single penny I spent and more because I got to avoid the worst of the lines. I will NEVER do this con without a VIP pass… Unless I decide to volunteer or get invited as a guest. Which I hope I will at some point.
I have a lot of processing to do, but I wanted to get that initial reaction done while it was still fresh. I had a good time over all, and I am very glad I went.
