We love going to Wizard World New Orleans. Its a great con and great for the city. Even last year, when Mrs. Nola Nerd Couple was in the throes of extreme nausea due to the baby, we had a great time.
In fact, baby even got to take a picture with the late great Stan Lee!
This year, we will be back at full strength. We will also have baby in tow for her first Wizard World.
Of the celebrity guests, we are most looking forward to meeting Mads Mikkelsen. I’m a huge Bond fan and he is one of the best and most memorable villains. He also is a major part of our favorite fandom – Star Wars. We have a Rogue One poster with Felicity Jones and having her cinematic father on there will be an amazing addition. (You can see our previous celebrity guests spotlights here and here).
We are really looking forward to meeting Michelle Hirstus and picking up some of her books in the JuJu The Good VooDoo for the baby. If artist Neal Adams is doing a panel, we will be there. We have met him at a previous Wizard World and he is full of great stories. I also am looking forward to meeting Arvell Jones (“Black Panther”) and Michael Golden (“Spider-Man”).
We would love to attend the Cosplay contest and just marvel at the creativity of our local cosplayers (and those that travel to the con as well!)
And, of course, we can’t wait to have some of Wild Bill’s Olde Fashioned Soda Pop!
