The first ever Salt Lake Comic Con kicked off with a press conference at the Salt Palace Convention Center on Sept. 5. Founder Dan Farr was introduced by actor Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk) and came to the podium riding in on a motorcycle with the Utah Jazz Bear. Many other Comic Con celebrities were at the event, including Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca from Star Wars), former Power Rangers actors David Yost and Walter Jones and Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica). Farr said he wanted to bring the energy and excitement he saw at conventions around the country to Salt Lake City. The event ran through Sept. 7 and sold more than 50,000 tickets.
