Welcome to comics THORsday! Today we’re going to talk about the different genres that we can find in comic books. A genre is just a type of classification. Comics, like books and movies, are classified in different groups using as a base their similarities. Perhaps, one of the best known comic book genre is the Superhero genre. However, there are other interesting genres that I am sure you already know.

A fictional character that changed my life: Loki of Asgard

free spirit award, depepi,

I got a nomination for the Free Spirit Award by Geek Girl Senshi, and the prompt is to talk about a fictional character that changed my life. If you follow this blog, you’ll find out no surprise when I mention Loki of Asgard. Back in 2011 I was in Tokyo. That was a great time of turmoil, especially because we had the megathrust that would change our lives. It was an experience I will never forget. And even though we decided to follow the plan of coming back to Europe on 2012, reality is that Japan and the megathrust has changed us forever. But, what has Loki to do with all this?

fandom friday, fandom, geek anthropology, pop culture,

This week’s fandom Friday is hot! It’s been great to imagine which crossovers would cause me to go onto the extreme-fangirl path. Though I am aware that many will never be a reality, I just hope that someone will be as crazy as to try one of these! This time I thought about my list as a journey into madness. I invite you to fall into the mad world of crossovers that would certainly make my ovaries explode!

Let’s begin with all the fun!

1. Supernatural x Sherlock.

Superlock would be a blast! I know many people would love a Superwholock mayhem, but, since I’m not so much into Dr.Who, for me Superlock would be the top crossover that would make me go bananas! I need it badly!

Comics THORsday: colors in comics

comics, comics thorsday, thorsday, comics ecourse, comics course, depepi,, geek anthropology, pop culture

Welcome to comics THORsday! Today we’re going to talk about colors in comics and what they might mean. Colors have been used in comics to let the audience recognize characters quickly. They have been also used to let the audience recognize emotions in the characters as well. For example, hot colors might mean hot emotions like pride or anger. But, has it been always like that? Is there more to colors than recognizing characters and their emotions?

Today I want to share about my Funkomania, and why I started collecting Supernatural Funko Pops. (And why I use fanfic names on their pairings though their main mission is to live on my desk and stare at me while I’m working.) For starters: I cannot resist these figurines! They’re too cute as to let them stay far from me, especially if they belong to one of the fandoms I love.

Pop counts aside, these small figurines brighten my day. Instead of having them on a shelf, something I should be considering, I have decided to put them around me on my desk. So, while I work, I have lots and lots of huge eyes staring back at me. It sounds creepy, right?

It’s supernatural!

Lessons on Geek Anthropology: types of fans

geek anthropology, lessons on geek anthropology, pop culture, depepi,

Welcome to another installment of lessons on Geek Anthropology. This time we’ll talk about types of fans. Not all fans have the same personalities nor are interested into the same topics on the same level. So, today, we’re going to discover what types of fans are out there. This is just a list, so you can find many other classifications of fans. Depending on the author, the list might be longer or even shorter.

Though the meme that I’m going to use focuses on fangirls, this can also be applied to fanboys. So, please ignore the gender, and just focus on what fans do so that we can know what type they are. Let’s go for it!

This is my sugarless adventure! An unexpected journey that started six weeks and three days ago! I stopped eating industrial sugar. No sweets, no chocolates, no cakes, no soft drinks, and no food that contains sugar traces. It might sound easy, but it’s harder than it looks! Going to the supermarket and reading all the labels on food products is a must if you want to make sure you’re not eating sugar unknowingly!

But, why did I decided to go Bilbo on this journey? Why would I cut all sugar from my life?

Fandom Friday: 5 Favorite Fandom Phrases

fandom friday, fandom, geek anthropology, pop culture,

This fandom Friday is all about favorite fandom phrases… Seriously? How am I supposed to choose just five! It might seem like an easy topic to write about, but in fact, just choosing five favorite fandom phrases turned out to be more difficult than I thought. Two seconds after reading the topic for the first time, I already had a bunch of phrases that I loved popping into my head! Here we go!

1. Loki: I am Loki of Asgard, and I am burdened with Glorious Purpose.

I love so many Loki quotes… I could spend hours here listing all of them. But, “Glorious purpose” is just so great! (Along with “I’m listening”) It’s one of those glorious moments in which you take the boots of the character and repeat after him like in a trance what he’s just said…

But there’s a lot of mischief here…
