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.

Geek'd Con is almost upon us, and this year's show is going to be amazing! Huge guests, great vendors, and some of the best fans in the world.

But even with all of this great stuff going for us, there are still people on the fence about buying tickets. So we're here to help. The first thing that we'd like to point out, is that compared to other "comic con" style events in the region, Geek'd con is SUPER affordable. Saturday Passes for Geek'd are only $25, which is at least HALF of what a SINGLE DAY ticket can cost you in Dallas, New Orleans, or Houston. Even compared to smaller shows in Shreveport and Bossier City, Geek'd Con tickets are cheaper.

If that's not enough to help convince you, check out some of these crazy things you can buy on Amazaon.com that are more expensive than a Saturday ticket to Geek'd Con:

Terrifying Inflatable Baby Costume - $94.64

Masquerade Halloween via Amazon.com

This is what nightmares are made of. It carries a price tag of $94.64 on Amazon.com, which could buy you at least 3 Saturday tickets to Geek'd Con.

A Pillow With Nicolas Cage On It - $27.95

Mercury selection via Amazon.com

It's weird for sure, but I still kind of want it. Even though it seems like a solid deal at $27.95, it's still more expensive than a Saturday ticket.

Danny DeVito. Or At Least A Life Size Cutout Of Him - $81.46

All from UK via Amazon.com

I want 12 right now. But for $81.46, you could get 3 Saturday tickets to Geek'd Con, which is probably better for everyone. Also, the "life size" Danny DeVito is listed at 183cm, or 6 feet, on the listing. Which means this isn't a "life sized" DeVito anyway.
