Details On Kevin Smith’s Shreveport Meet & Greet Packages
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, the major name leading the Geek'd Con lineup is legendary filmmaker Kevin Smith. He will be live at Geek'd Con on Saturday, August 19th only. So if you want to meet him, you have to plan to be at the Shreveport Convention Center that day.
But it won't just be Kevin Smitha. In fact, this is going to be a full blown View Askewneverse reunion event.
Not only will Kevin Smith be in Shreveport, but so will Jason Mewes, Brian O'Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Marilyn Ghigliotti, Harley Quinn Smith, and Ming Chen. All from the View Askewniverse. Not to mention Brandon Routh (Superman from Superman Returns and the CW's DC Comics shows) who is in the extended View Askewniverse from Zack and Miri.
The overall Geek'd Con guest lineup is nuts, you can see it here.
One of the first things posted about Kevin Smith's Geek'd Con appearance is that it will be limited. He will only be appearing on Saturday, August 19th, 2023. During that appearance, the number of in-person autographs he will be doing is VERY limited. That means if you have a movie poster, DVD, action figure, or anything besides an 8x10 photo you'd like signed, you have to have an in-person autograph ticket.
There will be pre-signed photos that will be autographed during a private event in Shreveport that you can purchase, but they will be limited to 8x10 images.
Here are the options to meet Kevin Smith at Geek'd Con this year:
---------- AUTOGRAPHS ----------

A Signature and a Pro Photo-Op - $175
This option gives you a chance to get a Kevin Smith autographed 8x10, and meet Kevin for a Professional Photo-Op at Geek'd Con. Even though the autograph doesn't happen in-person, you still get to meet Kevin during the photo-op.
