Geek'd Con is Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture event, and it will return this August for the show's 5th anniversary. The event will once again be at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport. This year's show will be on August 16th-18th.

This year is going to be big for anime fans in Shreveport, Bossier City, and the Ark-La-Tex. Geek'd Con is going all-in on one of the biggest anime franchises in history, Dragon Ball. There will be a cast part with 5 major voices from the franchise.

One of those voices from the Dragon Ball universe is  Ark-La-Tex (Haughton) native Josh Martin!

Josh is best known as the English dub voice of Majin Buu and Kid Buu

He's voiced "The Buu's" in Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT, Dragon Ball Kai, Dragon Ball Super, as well as movies and video games in the series.

You've also heard or seen Josh in My Hero Academia, Attack on Titan, multiple Louisiana Film Prize movies, as well as Barney & Friends...

You heard that right, he's Barney...he has plenty of stories about being in the suit, and how playing that character led to him ending up in the game Trivial Pursuit.

Come meet Josh, and ALL of the DBZ cast members in our cast party, at Geek'd Con 2019, August 16-18. Tickets can be found here:
