It’s midnight here in the UK, where Head Comics Writer Rich Johnston and Head Film Writer Brendon Connelly are toasting your health. Richard has champagne from Fortnums, Brendon has Mountain Dew. But the principle is the same.

Bleeding Cool is coming up for its fifth anniversary, and there is so much to come in 2014. But for now… which were the most-read stories of the year?

It’s an interesting point. Week by week, the weekly Lying In The Gutters, measuring the popular stories of that week is usually dominated by comic book stories. But if you take the year as a whole? It’s almost all film and TV stories. Comics news, it seems, has a shorter tail…
