Superhero mega-movies and TV series, comics, anime, and more elements of traditional “geek” culture have all become a lot more popular and hence a lot bigger, especially as the world is shifting to more online ways of having fun.
Geek culture is getting more prominence worldwide, and rightly so! From action-packed blockbusters to expertly-crafted, beautiful video games, the world of geek culture is expanding and maturing.
Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic certainly took a toll on most geek and gaming related events worldwide. These conventions and releases attract millions across the world and are some of the most popular ways to engage in geek culture.
