When these guests come to Shreveport, they'll be in-person to meet fans, take pictures, and sign autographs. When it comes to the autograph part of that, things can get pretty cool. You can do your standard 8x10 picture autograph, or you can bring your own item to get signed.
In addition to the on-screen celebrities, there will be comic book and illustration guests too. These artists have resumes that include comic books, magazines, movie posters, and more.
