Finally, Geek'd Con, Shreveport's own Geek'd Convention is here!!

This three-day event will include giant TV and film stars, comic book writers and artists, cosplay, vendors, panel discussions, photo ops, and a $500 costume contest. This is one of the biggest comic cons to ever hit Louisiana, and the BIGGEST to ever hit the Ark-La-Tex!

Guest will include Peter Mayhew, the actor who plays Chewbacca in the Star Wars film series. Jim Cummings the voice of Winnie The Pooh, Darkwing Duck, and Tigger. Rob Paulsen, the voice of Raphael from the 80s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon and Pinky from Pinky & The Brain. Maurice LaMarche from Futurama and also The Brain from Pinky & The Brain. Three of the women from the TV show Supernatural will also appear. Plus a ton more!

Tickets for the event are $20 for the whole weekend (one child 12-and-under gets in free per paid adult ticket) or $15 a day for Saturday and Sunday. Friday night is a Vendor Spotlight night, where the autograph guests won't be present, and you'll be able to shop any of the vendors with minimal lines. Single children tickets will be $5 (if you have more kids than paid adults). There will be FREE PARKING in the parking deck all weekend as well.

One of the most magical moments at Geek'd Con will be the performance by Twisted Toonz. There are 5 of the top voice actors in the country, who will do a read through of the movie script from Star Wars. Jim Cummings, one of the voice actors, has been the voice of Winnie The Pooh for the last two decades, and he could end up reading Darth Vader's lines as Winnie! Check out this video of the Twisted Toonz crew:

As you can see in the video, these guys can have fun on the stage, which does mean that occasionally there will be adult language, which is why Geek'd Con has a Parental Advisory posted for their Blue Moon Panel Room.
