• John Barrowman ("Doctor Who," "Torchwood")

• Bruce Cambell ("Evil Dead," "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.")

• Cary Elwes ("The Princess Bride," "Granite Flats")

• Ernie Hudson ("Ghostbusters")

• Christopher Lloyd ("Back to the Future," "Granite Flats")

• Sam Witwer ("Almost Human," "Smallville")

These are just six of more than 200 celebrities and special guests who will be announced between now and September. (It should be noted that celebrities have dropped out at the last minute.)

Salt Lake Comic Con is still almost four months away — Sept. 4-6 at the Salt Palace — but tickets are already on sale and at a reduced price. A three-day multipass that will cost you $60 during the event can be purchased now for $30, for example.

"Our fans are so supportive and passionate about Comic Con that we wanted to reward them for buying early," said Dan Farr, Salt Lake Comic Con founder and producer, in a statement. "The continued fan support of these events allows us to expand Salt Lake Comic Con, already the largest convention in the state, and continue to attract the best celebrities, comic creators and vendors to come to Utah."

For its third event, Comic Con is promising an expanded Kid Con, with more activities and features for children; more Cosplay; a "stronger" lineup of guests; a Salt Lake Comic Con film festival; a super comic creator lineup; and expanded entertainment, including a video games live night with the Utah Symphony.

The first Salt Lake Comic Con in September 2013 sold more than 52,000 tickets; Salt Lake Comic Con FanX in April sold more than 100,000 tickets.
