A few months ago, I wrote an article for Nerd Nite Magazine that listed 10 nerdy things to do in New Orleans. One of those things was the Wizard World New Orleans Comic Con. A few days ago, Wizard World reached out to me to help get the word out about this event and, of course, I jumped on the chance!
For a few reasons:
1. I’m a total fangirl. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that comics and graphic novels are a huge part of my life. But, this Con isn’t just about comics. This con has everything: movies, gaming, television, horror, wrestling, MMA, anima, manga, STAN LEE! Also, Walking Dead, CM Punk, Eliza Dushku, Patrick Stewart, ST:TNG VIP experiences. STAR TREK! How cool is that?
2. I’ve worked hard to help foster a culture in New Orleans that allows more demand for events like this. I love this city and I love to see its interests grow and expand. I don’t remember this sort of event from when I was a kid, so I’m watching it happening now and it’s very exciting! If we continue to support these events, we can pass along an interest as wonderful as comic books to the next generation.
3. New Orleans has some WONDERFUL talent like Kody Chamberlain and Rob Guillory and events like this bring attention to our burgeoning comic artist and writer scene. I believe they’ll both be there, so stop by and give them a thank you for all they do.
Wizard World has given me the opportunity to help out and also offer you a bonus litohograph from an attending artist with your registration. Please help support this terrific event by purchasing your tickets from me, RIGHT HERE!
I’ll be out there all 3 days, so find me and SAY HELLO!
