Welcome to our new series! What is it?
Well, I’m old enough to remember when being a geek wasn’t cool or even accepted. I remember a friend of mine asking me why I read comics, pointing out that I was the only person in the school who did (don’t get cranky, he meant well). These days the subculture is much more widespread, transcending gender, age and culture. Some people get a bit protective, going on about ‘real geeks’ and ‘fake geek girls’. Those people are stupid. We should be accepting and welcoming. To that extent here’s a series that will provide guides to different aspects of geek culture. If you’ve found yourself looking at a popular series or expression and wondering what the deal is with that we’ll try and lay it out for you!
