Episode 116.5: NOLA Comic-Con 2009 Part One New Orleans is America's party town, but can it host a comic convention? This weekend the Showcase boys descended on the 2009 NOLA Comic-Con to find out. Recording from the floor, the guys talk about the show, share stories of comic conventions of the past, and chat about comics in general. Then, before the clock runs out, they sit down for a conversation with the Star Wars collector club, the Red Stick Rebellion. The Red Stick guys are just the first interview on the plate, though -- with a three-part convention episode, there's going to be plenty more to share in part two!
