As I was looking at the Louisiana Comic Con’s excellent Facebook page, I came across one of their vendor spotlight posts. This was for Big J’s comic shop. One of the first comments was “more comics at a comic con is something I fully support.” Well, here at Nola Nerd Couple we couldn’t agree more.
Louisiana Comic Con responded that they have six comic guests and at least four comics vendors, plus few vendors that will sell comics along with other items.
The comics guests are Mike Zeck, John Beatty, Rob Guillory, Kody Chamberlain, Greg Burnham, and Brian Steward. We have met most of the main celebrity guests, so for this one, I want to meet all of the comics guests. I’ve read the first volume of Chew and it has left me hungry for more. For labor day weekend, I plan on submerging myself into Mike Zeck and John Beatty’s work in Marvel comics. For Chamberlain, Burnham, and Steward, I can’t wait to read some of their work and plan on buying some directly from them. Tuskegee Heirs, Mr. Burnham’s comic, seems like it is right in my wheelhouse of interests.
You have to love a comic con that still supports comics!
