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 will be celebrating year number 5 in Downtown Shreveport this year, and is going big in the process. We already knew LeVar Burton, Trish Stratus, Lori Petty, and more big names were on the way, but after this morning, it just went up a notch.

Michael Rooker, one of the stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is coming to Geek'd Con in Downtown Shreveport!

It's not just his role as Yondu Udonta in Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that makes him a star. Rooker's resume is FANTASTIC! Including his award winning run as Merle Dixon on The Walking Dead, Rowdy Burns in Days of Thunder, and Henry in Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.

We can keep going...Mallrats, Tombstone, Eight Men Out, Mississippi Burning, Slither, Kings and Pharaohs, and JFK (among MANY others).

Video games aren't even safe from Rooker's power. Appearing as Merle Dixon in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, Mike Harper in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and reprising Rowdy Burns in the Days of Thunder video game.

Michael Rooker will be appearing this August at Geek'd Con, and more info can be found at
