As the geek authority for bleeding edge bite-sized entertainment content delivered straight into the inboxes of self-proclaimed geeks everywhere, GeekChicDaily represents the shared passion of its three founders by capturing the enthusiasm of the fan in a daily must-read shot-in-the-arm of editorial.

Shamus is the founder and publisher of Wizard Magazine, considered the most influential in the comic book, toy and character-based genre. Shamus also publishes ToyFare and FunFare magazines and owns and operates the Big Apple, Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto and Anaheim Comic Con festivals.

“In the geek-o-system that is popular culture, Gareb and Wizard are a great white,” says Levin, an active player in the video game space. Levin was an early investor in Gamespy Industries and serves on the board of directors of Habbo. Continues Levin, “Gareb and I have been friends for many years and we’ve searched for the right project to embark upon together. Peter Guber became the secret sauce and GeekChicDaily was brought to life. We strive to bring to market a daily, shot-in-the-arm of editorial covering the things we all get such a kick out of.”
