Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is coming back to Downtown Shreveport this August. The 2024 Geek'd Con will take place August 16th, 17th, and 18th, at the Shreveport Convention Center. The event has hosted tons of celebrities over the last 9 years from all types of entertainment. From movie stars to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members, with viral internet celebrities and professional wrestlers mixed in as well.

Geek'd Con has become one of the biggest pop culture events in the entire state of Louisiana. Drawing fans and vendors from every corner of the United States, and creating millions of dollars in economic impact for the Shreveport and Bossier City area.


One of the staples of the event is the comic book talent that comes to Shreveport for the show. Over the years, a handful of comic book artists and illustrators have become fan-favorites in the Shreveport area. Their regular appearances have allowed local fans to see them every year, and to get more and more custom artwork from their favorites.

This year, a trio of those fan favorite artist will be returning to Shreveport for Geek'd Con, including Roland Paris.
