Geek'd Con, Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture convention, is back for 2018. August 17-19 at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport.

For the last few years, Geek'd Con has been Shreveport's version of a "comic con", bringing in guests like Elvira Mistress of the Dark (Cassandra Peterson), Lou Ferrigno, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), Tara Reid, comic book legend George Perez, Joey Fatone, Billy West, and a ton of other huge geek celebrities.

For this year, Geek'd Con started the guest announcements with a pretty big comic book newsflash.

This year's first Guest Announcement is TV's original Flash, John Wesley Shipp!

Shipp appeared as The Flash in the 1990 TV Series, and now he's returned to the new TV series on CW to play Jay Garrick, the "Golden Age" Flash.

Between Flash runs, John was a main cast star on Dawson's Creek and Sisters, as well as roles in Batman: The Brave and The Bold, and Teen Wolf.

Tickets for Geek'd Con will go on sale Friday, February 16th.
