Bleeding Cool’s 31 Best Interviews Of 2014

bleeding-cool-620x250For me, interviews are a big part of what I look back on when I consider my experiences in comics at the end of the year. Whether taken from phone discussions, live at conventions, or via e-mail, interviews are how I’ve gained my greatest insights into the medium, and they’ve been a continual education for me. I’d like to thank those who engaged in interviews this year on Bleeding Cool again for sharing their perspective and wisdom with us, and with our readers.

Here are some of the highlights from the interviews of 2014 from myself, Rich Johnston, Dan Wickline, Adi Tantimedh, Alex Wilson, Nikolai Fomich, and Jeremy Konrad:
