The Shreveport and Bossier geek community has been celebrating geek culture for a long time. With the centerpiece of the geek community becoming Geek'd Con, Shreveport's comic con, every August at the Shreveport Convention Center. But it's a long way until August.

But we've got good news for those who need a comic con fix before that, because CyPhaCon is returning to the Lake Charles Civic Center this April. It's a 3-day event, that is a combination of Anime, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and gaming. This year's CyPhaCon is set for April 3rd-5th, 2020. The event has been running since 2011, and has featured celebrity guests like Julian Glover, Sonny Strait, Chuck Huber, Tony Amendola, Monica Rial, Robert Axelrod, and many more.

This year, CyPhaCon's guest list features Cristina Vee from Sailor Moon, Eric Vale from the Dragon Ball universe, and now, a pretty big name to top their lineup.

Fan favorite actor Doug Jones will be heading to CyPhaCon this April!

Jones is one of the best special effects actors of all time. He's been in 150 films, but is maybe best known for the lead roles in the Academy Award winning movies Pan's Labyrinth and The Shape of Water. But here are some of the other roles you probably know:

Abe Sapien in Hellboy and Hellboy II

Jones has been in a ton of other movies, tv shows, web series, and online projects. Now you can meet Jones, and ask him ANY question you've got about any of his many roles.
