The overall Geek'd Con guest lineup is nuts, you can see it here.
One of the first things posted about Kevin Smith's Geek'd Con appearance is that it will be limited. He will only be appearing on Saturday, August 19th, 2023. During that appearance, the number of in-person autographs he will be doing is VERY limited. That means if you have a movie poster, DVD, action figure, or anything besides an 8x10 photo you'd like signed, you have to have an in-person autograph ticket.
There will be pre-signed photos that will be autographed during a private event in Shreveport that you can purchase, but they will be limited to 8x10 images.
Here are the options to get a Kevin Smith autograph at Geek'd Con this year:
This is the basic in-person autograph, where you get to bring your own item (or pick and 8x10) to get signed with Kevin. You get to meet him as he signs your item at Geek'd Con.
An Autograph and a Pro Photo-Op
This option gives you a chance to get a Kevin Smith autographed 8x10, and meet Kevin for a Professional Photo-Op at Geek'd Con. Even though the autograph doesn't happen in-person, you still get to meet Kevin during the photo-op.
Join the Krewe Of Clerks
Not only do you get a signed 8x10, you get to meet Kevin for a photo-op in Shreveport, PLUS you get to join the Krewe of Clerks, and take home Krewe of Clerks swag.
Want An Even Bigger Krewe Package?
How about meeting Kevin twice in one day? You get your item signed in-person, then you get to meet Kevin again for a photo-op. Plus you get to join the Krewe of Clerks with your Krewe package.
You will also be able to do mail-in orders for Kevin Smith autographs. Those details will be coming soon.
There will be more ways to meet Kevin in Shreveport. These are just the options to get an autograph from Kevin. There will be TONS of Professional Photo-Op choices, that will include more members of the View Askewniverse too.
