Comics Fandom is a broad term for the various fanac, fanworks, and communities developed around comic books. In the US context, comics fandom often refers to DC or Marvel comics, but there are many other publishers (and many different flavors of fannish source texts). Generally speaking, comics fandom does not exclusively refer to English-language comics, but is distinct from manga fandom.
Comic fans have a long history of creating their own catalogues and databases to keep track of continuity and issues.
Since the release of The Avengers film in 2012, the lines between comics fandom and media fandom have blurred.
