In 2018, a group of friends came together and combined their forces to create WOBAM Entertainment. What started as a DC and Marvel fan site in 2013 has grown into a celebration of fandom, covering movies, TV, video games, books, comics, music, anime, wrestling, and all manner of pop culture in between.
Our mission is to be a beacon where fans can express themselves. We shun toxic fandom and embrace being a platform where people can come together and celebrate the things we all love. We choose to elevate others like us, and use our voices on social media to lift up our friends and their friends.
We hope you’ll stay a while and read, sign-up for our newsletter, and join the conversation.– Landon Beall, Editor-in-Chief
