On a slightly related note – this! The Fan Phenomena series by Intellect Books is out – or at least some of them. They take an academic approach to fandom but are designed to be accessible to the average reader, and discuss fandom, cosplay, new media, and pop culture. I helped work on these – very briefly.
Other titles not pictured (because I gave the postcards to comic shops) are Batman and Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
