The Fourth Annual Geekawards: The Winners Are…

What a time to be a Geek, huh? With no shortage of quality movies, games, TV shows, and comics to occupy your time with, The Geekiverse Staff (and fans) voted on numerous categories. These are the properties that won big in 2017.

This year, we had a bigger staff than ever, as well as more nominations than we had in previous years. Each Geekiverse staff member was asked to give their list of items in a particular category, ranked from greatest to least. Points were counted on a grand ballot to determine the winner. For our first ever Fans Choice Geekawards, fans were able to vote in polls through our website throughout the month of December. Without further adieu, we are proud to present the 2017 Geekawards winners!
