Are you going to be in the Peach State this weekend? More specifically in the ATL? Then come down to Wizard World Atlanta and meet up with Geek Exchange for your chance at some cool stuff.
That’s right, the southern contingent of Geek Exchange (me, Amanda Broyles), will be heading to the big city to join the other thousands of comic book and general geekiness fans for Wizard World Atlanta.
While it is completely understandable if your sole reason to come by the Georgia World Congress Center is to meet me, there will be plenty of events during the weekend to fill your time. As Georgia is the home to The Walking Dead, there are a plethora of related sessions including former GEEK Magazine cover man, Norman Reedus and his on screen brother, Michael Rooker. There will also be a “The Walking Dead Fan Panel: Dead Inside Atlanta” panel on Saturday afternoon.
Another Georgia specific panel is the “GODS, ZOMBIES AND BRUSHING YOUR TEETH: GAME DEV IN GEORGIA” panel which takes a look at the game development industry in Georgia which currently ranks seventh in the country.
Perhaps one of the things I am most looking forward to, is the panel with a geek icon, Karen Gillan. Rising to fame here in the U.S. as Amy Pond in Doctor Who, Gilland will also be more than likely discussing her role as Nebula in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy.
Add in a film festival, the chance to meet some of your favorite comic artists, plenty of gaming opportunities, and of course, the exhibition floor with all your favorite vendors, there will be plenty to do and see for every kind of geek.
In between all that fun stuff, I will be floating around and have a collection of goods to give away to you! Plenty of t-shirts, some Blu-rays, and of course copies of the magazine can be yours. All you have to do is follow us on Twitter, @geekexchange and Instagram, @geekexchange, to check where we can meet up throughout the weekend.
Of course I’ll be Instagramming any and all great cosplay, however I’d love to see some solidarity and meet up with all those Booster Gold cosplayers! (please let there be at least one) Help me prove to the rest of the Geek Exchange editorial staff that I’m not alone in my Booster Gold love.
See you this weekend!
