Salt Lake City is getting its own Comic-Con.
The event is an expansion of the GEEX Gaming and Electronics Expo, which highlights tech and gamers' interests.
According to the website, the following celebrities will be attending the Comic-Con:
• Tia Carrere ("True Lies," "Wayne's World," "Relic Hunter")
• Lou Ferrigno ("The Incredible Hulk," "I Love You, Man")
• Jonathan Frakes ("Star Trek: The Next Generation")
• Richard Hatch ("Battlestar Galactica," both versions)
• Sofia Milos ("CSI: Miami")
• Kevin Sorbo ("Hercules: The Legendary Journeys," "Andromeda," "Kull The Conquerer")
And there will be the usual assortment of vendors, cosplay folks and other enthusiasts of all things geeky.
(To the non-geeks among you, a reminder that it's not fair to laugh or tease. After all, everybody has something that gets them excited and wearing funny clothes -- whether it's science-fiction or Civil War reenactments or Phish concerts or Utah Jazz games.)
