Popular public knowledge graphs like DBpedia or YAGO are created from Wikipedia as a source, and thus limited to the information contained therein. At the same time, Wikifarms like Fandom contain Wikis for specific topics, which are often complementary to the information contained in Wikipedia. In this paper, we show how the DBpedia approach can be transferred to Fandom to create DBkWik, a complementary knowledge graph.
