Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is heading back to Downtown Shreveport for year #8 at the Shreveport Convention Center. The event started back in 2015, and this looks like it might be the biggest EVER.

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.

While this year's lineup features a lot of legendary on-screen stars, the voice actors on the lineup also pack a punch. Which includes one of the most iconic voices of the 90s, Ash Ketchum from Pokémon.

The original English voice of Ash was provided by Geek'd Con guest Veronica Taylor. She voiced Ash through the first 8 season, arguable the most important in the franchise. Not only that, she voiced Ash in the first three major motion pictures, and half a dozen other Pokémon movies.
