With geeks now cool, YouTube has announced that August 4-10 is Geek Week, with more than 100 channels celebrating superheroes, comics, gaming, science and sci-fi.

YouTube has become a top destination for fans everywhere to create, share and watch geek content. That’s why on August 4-10 we’ll celebrate this content with a special programming event: our first-ever YouTube Geek Week at YouTube.com/GeekWeek.

Produced in conjunction with geek powerhouse Nerdist in the U.S. and Channel Flip in the U.K., Geek Week will showcase more than 100 channels that fans love, unveiling new videos, series premieres and creative collaborations, as well as highlighting some of the best geek videos and shows already on YouTube.

YouTube says that more than half of its top 20 non-music channels are geek-orientated.
