Wizard World New Orleans

Heading to New Orleans Comic Con this week (Jan 6-8, 2017)? What a coincidence! So am I! I'd love to say hi, so come check me out at one of my panels below, during the con. Also, please reach out on Twitter and Instagram @AaronSagers. Hope to check out your pics from the con, and look forward to meeting you! And you can still Get tix here!

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. Also show up if you have questions about theories, equipment or want to share your own experiences!

4:30-5:15PM A CONversation with MAX THIERIOT (ROOM 243)

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!

SUNDAY

11:00-11:45AM AIN’T THAT A BAT TO THE HEAD, A CONversation with MICHAEL CUDLITZ and STEVEN YEUN (MAIN STAGE)

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.

2:00-2:45PM GREAT SCOTT! REVISITING BACK TO THE FUTURE with CHRISTOPHER LLOYD and TOM WILSON (MAIN STAGE)
