FRIDAY

8:00-8:45PM PARANORMAL CITY: NEW ORLEANS (ROOM 238)

When it comes to most haunted cities, New Orleans ranks right at the top. Along with legends revolving around voodoo, monsters, maniacs and more, and the Big Easy could rightly be re-christened the Big Creepy. Join TV host and Paranormal Pop Culture expert Aaron Sagers (Travel Channel, Syfy, TLC, ParanormalPopCulture.com) along with local paranormal researchers, authors and tour operators Lord Chaz Howell, Bloody Mary, and Alyne Pustiano as they separate fact from folklore, and explore the unexplained haunts behind the history.

5:30-6:15PM MARVEL VS DC: A SILVER SCREEN SUPER FAN SHOWDOWN (ROOM 243)

Forget about who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman, or Team Cap vs. Team Iron Man, because in this riotous (but good-natured) fan debate, we're pitting the onscreen heroes of Marvel and DC against one another. Which classic comics house is owning it on television? Who has the better team movie? Which studio has landed the better villain? And who's film lineup has you the most excited. Join professional nerd Aaron Sagers (Syfy Wire, Travel Channel), Dean Haspiel (The Fox; The Red Hook), Ming Doyle (Constantine: The Hellblazer, DC Bombshells), and Sam Humphries (Green Lanterns; Legendary Star-Lord) for an interactive and friendly super-fan showdown. It's the battle to bring the multiverse to its knees!

12:00-12:45PM THE WRITERS ROOM GAME SHOW (ROOM 343)

Think Han should have kicked Kylo Ren's butt? Were you lost at the end of Lost? Did Man of Steel's finale snap you out of the movie? For all of you who think you could have come up with a better ending, you can't miss The Writers Room Gameshow. Professional writers Dean Haspiel (The Fox; The Red Hook), Sam Humphries (Green Lanterns; Legendary Star-Lord), Richard Kadrey (Sandman Slim series; The Everything Box), and Guy Gilchrist (Nancy; Muppet Babies) join audience members, and are quizzed to come up with funnier finales for iconic movies and TV shows. Hosted by professional nerd Aaron Sagers (Syfy, Travel Channel), this hilariously interactive panel will test the improv skills and creativity of everyone.
