The most-read story or 2014 in Bleeding Cool was one of the first. A 3 am-held instant-message interview with Shia Labeouf beat out even the Reddit-fuelled story that no one was to be "taken" in Taken 3. The story went massively viral and spawned T-shirts at San Diego Comic Con. I do hope Shia will return in 2015…
But the list does give you an idea of hot button topics for the year, from the treatment of cosplayers, the cancellation of Fantastic Four, the Marvel and DC movies and Milo Manara's cover to Spider-Woman and finishing off with the recent reportage of the Marvel Experience event in Arizona…
