ComedySportz Panel
Indiana's premier improv comedy group brings you hilarious comedy great for everyone. A past hit of GenCon, Wizard World, and Awesome Con, ComedySportz is competitive improv comedy, where groups of performers make up scenes, create songs, or play games on the spot based on audience suggestions. This isn’t “Standup Comedy;” everything is unscripted. Every match is unique, featuring different games, different Players, and different suggestions provided by the fans. Bring your best, brightest, or most obscure Pop Culture references and get ready for comedy gold!

Women in Fandom
Women in comics...  Women in gaming...  Women in internet culture...  Women in media...  It seems you can fill in the blank, and women find themselves with a tougher road in today's culture.  But it's getting better.... or is it?

We invite successful professionals (who happen to be women) from the industries of video gaming, YouTube, comic books, and general geek fandom to speak about their own personal experiences within the industry and how they navigate the waters of their career paths.

Malcolm Goodwin Panel
Zombie culture may be nearing its peak, but we fell in love with the new series that puts a fresh spin on the zombie culture - the CW network's iZombie. Rather than focus on bloodlust and zombie rage, they took Mike Aldred's comic series about a zombie turned mystery solver and the series has been renewed for Season 2. Come chat with iZombie & Breakout Kings star Malcolm Goodwin about his thoughts on Season 1 for iZombie and ask him to spill the beans on details for Season 2!
