Have A Friend Who Doesn’t ‘Get’ Geek’d Con Yet?
Geek'd Con, Shreveport's comic con, is August 17th-19th, 2018 at the Shreveport Convention Center. The lineup includes WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, the voice of Jack Skellington (Chris Sarandon), the first woman to ever portray Supergirl Helen Slater, and MTV's Bam Margera. Tickets and full lineup are at GeekdCon.com
When I talk to people about Geek'd Con, nearly everyone gets excited, but some quickly follow that excitement up with some form of the phrase "But what is it really?" or if they're not familiar, they usually say something like "What does that mean?". I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when talking to people, you might even have friends who you're trying to get to go along with you who "just don't get it".
When I get these questions, I'm actually not upset about hearing them. Because anytime I get those questions, it just gives me more of a chance to talk about the event.
But sometimes talking isn't enough.
I mean, I can tell people about guests, or the story of how the event started, or how it's designed just for Shreveport and Bossier (and not a copy of a Dallas or New Orleans event), or vendors...I mean, I could really go on and on. But sometimes showing the response and reaction of fans really demonstrates what the event is really about.
Which is when pictures and videos come in. We've put together 3 years of amazing community interactions, and these are some of the pictures and videos we've picked up from it:
