Den of Geek is an American website covering entertainment[2] with a focus on films,[3] television,[4][5] video games,[6] and books.[7] The website has an eponymous print publication.


Den of Geek was founded in 2007 by Simon Brew in London. In 2012, DoG Tech LLC licensed Den of Geek for the American and Canadian markets, expanding the website to the United States and opening a New York City office. In 2017, based on DoG Tech's rapid growth in the United States and worldwide, Dennis Publishing entered into a joint venture agreement with DoG Tech, LLC.[8] In 2015, Den of Geek launched a print magazine, currently published bi-annually, tieing in with the San Diego Comic-Con in July and the New York Comic Con in October of each year.[9][10] In 2017, the first Den of Geek-branded book, Movie Geek: The Den of Geek Guide to the Movieverse, was published.[11] It was followed in 2019 by TV Geek: The Den of Geek Guide for the Netflix Generation.[12]


Den of Geek publishes entertainment news, reviews,[13] interviews, and features. Reaching nearly 10 million[14] readers monthly, the site aims to break current pop-culture and entertainment news through a fan perspective. Den of Geek US is overseen by editor-in-chief Mike Cecchini,[15][16] while the UK edition of the website is edited by Rosie Fletcher.[17] Den of Geek also produces daily video content ranging from celebrity interviews and exclusive entertainment previews to critical takes and movie trailer analyses. Den of Geek's video content is distributed through Dailymotion, YouTube, and social media.[18]


Den of Geek debuted its print edition in October 2015 at New York Comic Con. The magazine is published twice annually and distributed locally at San Diego Comic-Con in July and New York Comic Con in October. The print edition is edited by Chris Longo.[19] In July 2018, Den of Geek exclusively revealed Aquaman movie artwork on the cover of its San Diego Comic-Con magazine.[20]
