Facebook Fandom Spotlight: BOOM! Studios and Archaia

The Facebook Fandom Spotlight is a day late. We had intended to do one on all independent publishers (that’ll be a later date), but with the announcement of the acquisition of Archaia by BOOM! Studios, I thought it’d be fun to see what the “new” company’s fandom looks like.

There was a limited number of terms to use, so I decided to go global for this report. It covers the terms having to do with the publishers themselves and some of their series’ that can’t be attributed to other reasons. For example, no Adventure Time since it’s a television show.
