ComicCon-ing: News from MegaCon, Mississippi Comic Con, Louisiana Comic Con and Gulf Coast Fan Fest


Megacon:  Again, we had a blast at MegaCon. We are in the process of doing a podcast about the con, but we just returned home from vacation and are looking forward to getting Nola Nerd Baby back on schedule. MegaCon as far as we know hasn’t released any dates for next year’s con, but their sister con, MegaCon Tampa Bay, will be held Septemeber 21-23. We will try to update our comic con previews weekly, and we will feature Tampa Bay as soon as they start announcing guests.



Mississippi Comic Con:  We attended the Mississippi Comic Con last year and had a great time. This con will be on June 23 and 24 at the MS Trade Mart in Jackson Mississippi. The lineup is impressive for a con that is probably the smallest of the ones that we cover.  It will feature Ryan Hurst, Austin St. John, Michael Biehn, Maile Flanagan, Kate Flannery, Todd Habekorn, David Fielding, John Morton, David Ankrum, Dickey Beer, and Jake the Snake Roberts. We have been binging The Office and are looking forward to meeting Kate Flannery.



Louisiana Comic Con: This con will be held on October 6 & 7 at the Cajundome in Lafayette. This con is a little far away, so it’s guest roster is limited. However, it does feature homegrown talent and Eisner-award winner Rob Guillory.



Gulf Coast Fan Fest: This con will be at the Mississippi Coast Convention Center on October 13-14, 2018. This convention is a brand new con, and it already has a great lineup.  Some of the celebrity guests include Seth Gilliam, Sam Jones, Ming Chen, David Naughton, Ray Park, and Jason Mewes.  Mr. Nola Nerd Couple is a massive fan of The Wire so he can’t wait to meet Mr. Gilliam
