More guests announced for January including a Sons of Anarchy reunion (again) and the first slate of voice actors.

So apparently there's a new con trying to make inroads in Shreveport/Bossier and they'll be running the Bossier Civic Center:



This does not have any clear association to AVC Conventions (promoters of Louisiana, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi Comic-Cons) and obviously has totally different branding as "SBC Comic Con" but...that absolutely looks like an AVC con guest list, right? Like they've literally been running many of those same exact names on their circuit.

However, if you dig in you'll see that it's put on by VXV Events, the founder of which was apparently a (former?) partner in AVC who is now trying to run his own cons throughout the south. He calls himself a partner (present tense) in AVC in the press release, but this certainly feels like direct competition.

I guess Mighty Cons saw the writing on the wall about going up against Fan Expo after all. They've changed their show to April.

Dang ... coming fast & furious now.

Steven Amell and a few others from the Arrow gang were at Wizard World New Orleans in 2017. Hosted a fun panel and gave my wife plenty of eye candy.

The View Askew krewe and Ron Perlman are also family family faves. Looking like a real possibility.

Yeah. They're going to make people forget Wizard World ever existed in New Orleans.

I'm gonna need Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, or Grant Gustin to really get me enticed into going. So far, none of the guests are moving me. Don't get me wrong, they're good guests, but just not who I'm looking for.

Even Jeff Anderson? He's a bit of a hermit and was the reason Clerks 3 almost didn't happen.

Anderson's Wikipedia page shows an image from him at a 2020 convention in Richmond, VA. I wonder how often he's been guesting at cons lately?

EDIT: Four cons for Anderson over the last few months, with three more for him so far scheduled for 2022.
