About the site: The most comprehensive Supernatural site on the web, established in 2006, Supernatural Wiki is a well laid-out, intelligently designed, easy to navigate Aladdin’s cave of Winchester goodness.
About the site: Most Chuck sites are shamefully shoddy, so this one doesn’t need to try a tenth as hard as it does to shine. But we’re glad it does. Great design, regularly updated, intelligently written, and admirably opinionated.
How they describe themselves: “Founded in 1999 by a group of like-minded Tolkien fans so anxious for the coming Peter Jackson Lord Of The Rings films that they were gathering up every scrap of production information to be found, TheOneRing.net continues today in bringing fans the latest news on the beloved figures involved in the making of the wildly popular Lord Of The Rings movies as well as the newest information available on upcoming productions, Tolkien-centred events, new publications, and fan gatherings.”
How they describe themselves: “The Leaky Cauldron is an all-purpose site for the Harry Potter enthusiast. It started in 2000 as a badly-designed one-page roll of news; it has now turned into a destination for fan entertainment and discussion, and has become the Harry Potter site of record, hosting the oldest and most comprehensive Potter news archive on the web.”
About the site: A lot of the sites in this section may lay claim to being “market leaders” but you don’t need to be to get a nomination. Combom is a magpie site, gathering things from wherever it can, but it does it with a wit, style, clarity and attitude that always makes it worth a visit (and we love the minimalist design).
How they describe themselves: “Obscure, nostalgic, sublime and occasionally ridiculous, Who Fix is your daily dose of Doctor Who goodness. Updates are daily, except for ‘Twin Dilemma’ Tuesdays when you get two for the price of one.” TV archaeology of the highest order, and often very, very funny.
