Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is heading back to the Shreveport Convention Center. The dates this year are August 18th through 20th, 2023.

Since its start, Geek'd Con has been one of the premiere comic con style events in the state of Louisiana. The event has generated millions of dollars in economic impact to the Shreveport and Bossier City area. While also bringing in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members, Star Wars icons, Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame members, and horror movie legends.

Tickets for this year are available here.

This year's guests include Kevin Smith, Brandon Routh, Sam Witwer, John Barrowman, Estelle (and the rest of the Crystal Gems from Steven Universe), Kurt Angle, and more. Along with Kevin Smith, a huge cast reunion for his films will be happening in Shreveport.

Every year at Geek'd Con fans get to enjoy panel discussions with their favorite guests. Its always been a big part of the show, and it will be bigger this year. Because, for the first time ever, Geek'd Con will feature two panel rooms. The main room will feature the cosplay contest and headliner guests, while the second room will feature LEGO speed building, and a TON of great anime guests.

Both panel rooms are brought to you by the US Army and their eSports team!

Now, there will be some differences with panels this year, due to the ongoing Hollywood strikes, not all topics can be discussed. But it won't be bad at all, we just get to talk about things you normally wouldn't get to hear about!

Also, this year Geek'd Con welcomes the team from Gabe's Cave to host the panels!

So let's check out what we're looking at this year:
