The Atlanta Fandom Guide is a comprehensive resource for residents of (and visitors to) the Atlanta, GA area — a “labor of love” for fellow fans of science fiction, fantasy, comics, animation/cartoons, anime, gaming, videogames, costuming/cosplay, conventions, movies… in other words, just about anything and everything related to stuff that we geeks grok over.

ATLANTA FANDOM GUIDE HISTORY
The AFG was originally developed in 2005 for Georgia-based Transformers fans through a TF fansite. Later, by special request from fans on AWA-CON.com it was expanded to include Anime. And after prompting through other Atlanta-area fan forums, in May 2010 the guide was completely revised and expanded comprehensively to cover all aspects of geek fandom in Atlanta.
The AFG is continually a work-in-progress and only updated periodically. We [I say “we” but there’s only one nerd maintaining this blog] make no attempt to provide regular fandom-related news and event updates because we have too many other pieces of bacon on our plate outside of this blog (as you can see below), and besides… there are well-established fan sites that already offer that service. This blog is simply an attempt to collect info into a single resource for Atlanta fandom.
