Salt Lake Comic Con urges Friday's attendees to allow a little extra Bat-time and come prepared to fend off Mr. Freeze at the door.
People waited for more than an hour outside the Salt Palace on Thursday the first day of the inaugural event as the line tested the capacity of the north-south stretch of West Temple. Eventually organizers shepherded the vast rush-hour crowd inside, but with celebrities like Adam West and Burt Ward (the original Batman and Robin) adding to Friday's showroom fray, organizers say it's important to be patient, bring the necessary paperwork and pre-register, if possible.
"Plan ahead, get here ahead of time," said founder Dan Farr, who suggests arriving an hour early. "Don't expect just to come and walk in the door."
