Felicia Day’s hub for all things nerdy has set Rob Manuel as the new editor-in-chief at Geek and Sundry.
As the new editor-in-chief of Geek and Sundry, Manuel plans to use his experience in geek entertainment to reach fans across the spectrum of nerdiness. Already a popular virtual gathering place, Manuel hopes that his work at Geek and Sundry can “bring the geeky world of games, comics, entertainment, and fashion to a wider audience.”
Felicia Day, founder and Chief Creative Officer of Geek and Sundry, is confident that Manuel will expand and enrich the fan community.
“We are so excited to have Rob on board,” Day says. “His passion for the geek space, as well as his expertise in gaming, is a huge asset towards achieving our goal of building out GeekAndSundry.com as a daily destination for our unique niche content.”
Manuel comes to Geek and Sundry with several years of creative experience at G4 and Gamestrailers. His background in video game coverage, as well as work both as an editor and creator of video content, will fit well at Geek and Sundry. Day’s website hosts regular written content and a strong fan community of its own, in addition to producing multiple YouTube series that have established a new standard in indie entertainment.
Founded in 2012, Geek and Sundry has rapidly grown into a favored source of creative content tailored specifically for geeks. Spearheaded by Felicia Day and fellow geek icon Wil Wheaton, the brand produces the popular gaming web series TableTop and Co-Optitude, as well as Day’s informally formal vlog series, The Flog.
Geek and Sundry was acquired by Legendary Digital Network last year, allowing the company to further expand their imprint on geek culture. Legendary president Adam Rymer sees Rob Manuel’s appointment as another step in the company’s continued development.
“As Geek and Sundry continues to grow and claim their space in fan-centric entertainment,” Rymer says, “We are excited to add new and dynamic members to the team that will help the brand reach a broader audience while continuing to support its core audience and community.”
