To celebrate May 4th, we’re releasing a new edition of How Geek Culture Became Pop Culture as one feature-length video, with WatchMojo staff and contributors sharing their own stories.
Once upon a time, if you were obsessed with far-flung worlds, comics, or even knew what a 20-sided die was for, you could expect to be harried in high school hallways. Today, geek culture has exploded into the mainstream, with the underdogs of yore now the creators and consumers of pop culture! How did so much change? Join us for a deep dive into how science fiction, fantasy, video games, anime, and comic book heroes became pop culture staples.
