Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, returns next month to Downtown Shreveport. The event will be held August 18-20 at the Shreveport Convention Center.

There will be hundreds of vendor booths, comic book artists, panels, LEGO demonstrations, and celebrity guests. If you've never been to a comic con style event before, think of it as a giant "meet and greet" event where you can shop from geeky vendors.

This year's Geek'd Con is highlighted by filmmaker Kevin Smith.

In addition to Kevin Smith, you can meet his co-stars from the View Askewneverse (what his series of movies are often called). He will be joined by Jason Mewes, Brian O'Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Joey Lauren Adams, Marilyn Ghigliotti, Harley Quinn Smith, Ming Chen, and in a very rare convention appearance, Kevin's wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith.

But its not just a Kevin Smith event. You can meet Superman actor Brandon Routh too!

Inside the event, you will find retail vendors, crafters, writers, artists, and celebrities representing fandoms from horror movies to anime, and everything in between. Not to mention the major comic book artists from Marvel, DC, and Scout Comics, who will be doing custom artwork that weekend.

Geek'd Con is Shreveport's version of events like San Diego Comic Con or Dallas Fan Expo. It's a huge event to celebrate fandoms in the Ark-La-Tex. You will be able to shop from hundreds of vendor booths, participate in cosplay contests, win prizes, and hang out with friends.

Above we mentioned some other shows in other cities that are similar to what Geek'd Con is to Shreveport. Some of those other shows have tickets that cost hundreds of dollars to attend the weekend. Not saying that those shows aren't worth it, but just mentioning that the cost of those events are substantially higher than tickets to Geek'd Con.

In fact, you can get tickets to Geek'd Con for a lot less than some of the weird things you can find on Amazon. We checked out some wild listings on Amazon, and found a dozen things that are pretty weird, that all cost more than a ticket to Geek'd Con.
