There was no FanX in 2018. Well, there sort of was. Originally, the Salt Lake Comic Con ran in September and the Salt Lake FanX, run by the same people, ran in April. The San Diego Comic Con sued them, and after several years, the courts somehow came to the conclusion that the San Diego Comic Con could trademark a name they had made no effort to protect for decades. So the 2018 September convention was called FanX, but I still call it the Comic Con, partly because that court decision was bonkers and partly because I don’t want to specify between FanX Spring 2019 and the upcoming FanX Fall 2019. So we’re calling the fall event Comic Con, and these photos come from FanX.
And now, the Harley Quinn round-up. It’s a pretty subdued turnout this year. I think Harley Quinn’s popularity – incessant since the Salt Lake Comic Con’s inception in 2013 – may finally be waning.
Seriously, eleven? And that’s counting one that I’m not sure is actually supposed to be a Harley Quinn. There’s been cons that had over fifty. There is a pretty good variety, at least. Some BTAS Harleys, a Suicide Squad Harley, a few kind of Arkham style, some crossover versions with like Deadpool and stuff, Harley and Joker in their pajamas was a fun new take on that couples costume.
So yeah, that was FanX. There were also some panels and stuff. Northern Utah is still full of writers.
