SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The organizers of Salt Lake Comic Con are entering a partnership to host events in China, Thailand and the Philippines.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1pHHRbp) the team behind the Utah pop-culture convention announced the deal Monday. They’re partnering with Pop Life Entertainment, a company that makes big-headed figurines of popular characters from movies, TV and more.
