As a fan of Star Wars, a trip to Salt Lake Comic Con needs to be on your list of to do items. Still small enough to have the opportunity to get in to almost every panel you want, yet big enough to pull in top names in the Star Wars community. The quality of programming for the panels was top notch. In almost all of the panels, the subject was engaging and left you satisfied, wanting more. Salt Lake Comic Con is the one you want to go to if you want intelligent Star Wars conversation by panelists with a high Star Wars IQ. It is not built around a breaking news or product reveals circus. A refreshing and enjoyable convention, add it to your list!
