Geek Monthly is an American print magazine based in Agoura Hills, California, published by Fusion Publishing, and run by editor-in-chief Jeff Bond. The glossy monthly was started in late 2006 and published by CFQ Media, who was previously responsible for the long-lived and now defunct science fiction/fantasy magazine Cinefantastique. Geek Monthly is now part of Fusion Publishing who is best known for the video gaming magazine Play. The magazine is a self-described microcosm of pop culture with a mission statement that makes clear that the staff and contributors are "dedicated to anything and everything that geeks like you obsess about; like the latest Toys, Anime, TV shows, Movies, Games and DVDs." Some regular departments include Interface, Scope, Technobabble, Geekbits, Rants and Level Up. Special Issues include Toy Fair coverage, Comic Con, Back to School/fall TV, spring Big List issue. Geek celebrities are usually featured on the covers including Rainn Wilson, Greg Grunberg (from TV's Heroes), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars), and 24's Mary Lynn Rajskub and Anna Faris. The magazine is primarily distributed in print form on newsstands and bookstores, with a digital PDF edition available only to subscribers.

The October 2009 issue - featuring Ricky Gervais on the cover - was apparently damaged in printing, and was not distributed to subscribers or newsstands. It is only available via digital download from the back issue website.

The November 2009 issue - which was sent in electronic PDF form to subscribers in email, has "Winter 2009" on the cover in its print edition. This may indicate that the magazine will be reducing its print run from monthly to quarterly.

On February 1, 2010, several of the magazine's writers received a "Notice of a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Case, Meeting of Creditors and Deadlines" in the mail concerning Fusion Publishing, Inc. According to the letter, the meeting of creditors is 11 a.m., March 1, 2010, at 21051 Warner Center Lane, #105, Woodland Hills, CA 91367. The case number is 1:10-bk-10979-GM.

This was communicated on Geek Monthly's Facebook Fan page by one of the magazine's (former) writers in answer to subscribers both new and old had posted questions and concerns about Fusion Publishing accepting payment for new subscriptions and never delivering the magazines.
