Transformative Works and Cultures has released No. 29, titled Fans of Color, Fandoms of Color.
The essays in this issue describe, interpret, and contextualize transformative works and practices by fans of color, about characters of color, or both. Fandoms include Harry Potter, Game of Thrones (via #DemThrones), The Walking Dead, Black Panther, and How to Get Away with Murder.
Other essays discuss K-pop, slash, parody videos, Filipino fans, and martial arts.
