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.
Facebook BOOM! Studios and Archaia Fan Population: Over 162,000 Globally
Spanish speakers account for 48,000, that’s a whopping 29.63% of fans. That’s the highest amount recorded so far!
Gender and Age
When it comes to the breakdown of the size of the male and female population, BOOM!/Archaia comes pretty close to what we saw with Marvel Comics. A little over 3/4’s of the population is male.
General Comic Fans
DC Comic Fans
Here’s the full raw numbers as far as age and gender.
Fans of BOOM! and Archa are similar to DC and Marvel in the relationship department, though more are “in relationships” or “married.”
When it comes to education fans of BOOM! and Archaia come very close to that of Marvel Comics.
There’s an interesting mix here, in that this is one of the highest percentages of “men interested in men,” but also an average percent of “women interested in women.”
And that wraps up this report! Join us next week when we look at all of comic fandom, the first also is a Monday!
