CON SEASON 2020
Wizard World New Orleans | Comic Con 2020
As many of you know 2019 saw me move from the bright neon of Las Vegas to the bright green of Atlanta. What that means is a whole bunch of new comic conventions to explore and new comic fans to meet, and for me that’s about as exciting as it gets.
Now I haven’t been to a con in six months and since comic conventions have consistently proven to be one of the most positive experiences I’ve ever had, the world just doesn’t move right when I can’t attend regularly. So as I was looking to book, the first one that came up was Wizard World New Orleans.
New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in the world. While I was in film school I had the occasion to spend some time there getting to know city-at-large from a friend of mine and his family. Through that experience I came to love that place. The food, the history, and the people are amazing. Plus the city has just the right amount of shade coursing through it’s veins. The experiences I had with Nate and his family affected me so much that my best work, Fever, was set in New Orleans and surrounding area. I haven’t been back in nearly twenty years so I am overjoyed at the opportunity to do one of my favorite things in one of my favorite cities.
Not Just Comics, but FOOD
Not coincidentally I’ll also finally be able to get a great muffuletta and there’s a giant spot in my heart for the one they serve at the Central Grocery. If you like cured meats this is a bucket list level experience I promise you.
The Central Grocery is located at: 923 Decatur St. New Orleans, LA 70116
