Meet Little Jimmy LeBeaux This Saturday!

If you want to meet Jim Cornette this week, you’ll have to travel to Dallas, home of Wrestlemania 32, to see him at IHWE/NWA Parade of Champions. But if you want to meet Jim’s son, Little Jimmy LeBeaux, you will need to be in Jim, Sr.’s hometown of Louisville.

It’s a cruel twist of fate that brought Little Jimmy to town on a weekend when his daddy will be absent, but it’s nothing new for the thirtysomething Cajun. Jim Cornette’s been absent Little Jimmy’s whole life, and he’s been ducking Little Jimmy ever Kenny Bolin first told Jim he was a father. That won’t stop Little Jimmy from having a good time this weekend when he makes his first public appearance Saturday afternoon at the Nerdy Planet!

The Nerdy Planet is Louisville’s newest and coolest destination for all things comic books and pop culture. Kenny Bolin and I will be there from 3-5 PM Saturday signing copies of Bluegrass Brawlers, Eat Sleep Wrestle, and I Probably Screwed You Too: The Mostly True Stories of Kenny Starmaker Bolin. As a special treat, we have invited Little Jimmy LeBeaux to be our guest, and yes, Little Jimmy will be available for pictures and autographs too!

Is it a shoot? Is it a work? This Saturday, you can meet Little Jimmy LeBeaux and decide for yourself if he is the true heir to the Cornette fortune. Bring your cameras, your autograph books, and your book money down to the Nerdy Planet Saturday from 3-5 PM,and let’s show Little Jimmy a little Louisville hospitality.

Please give Little Jimmy a follow on Twitter as well!

Bluegrass Brawlers on sale at The Nerdy Planet!

The Why Louisville store was the first retailer to carry Bluegrass Brawlers when it was released in 2014. Why Louisville is gone, but I’m happy to say another Louisville original is now carrying the book.

The Nerdy Planet is a labor of love owned by Ken and Myra Daniels. Ken and Myra are the founders of Fright Night Film Fest and FandomFest, along with several other pop culture conventions across the United States. They love all things pop culture and know how to put on a big show with big names, but they also have a huge heart for up and coming artists, dreamers, writers, and filmmakers.

The vision for The Nerdy Planet goes far beyond selling comics, toys, games, and autographs. It’s already a destination for gamers, and it’s on the way to becoming a show place for other artists. Kentucky filmmaker Jerry Williams, a cult favorite on Roku’s INC channel, recently held a film showcase at the store, and more artists are lining up to take advantage of the space.

All this to say The Nerdy Planet is more than just the place where you can get a copy of Bluegrass Brawlers (and my first illustrated kids book Frank Jordan: Evil Snowman); it is becoming the go-to destination to support local artists, writers, and filmmakers as well as pick up the latest issue of Deadpool.

The Nerdy Planet is located south of the Watterson at6470 North Preston Highway Unit 3 in Louisville. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on future events and announcements.
