Archive of Past Interviews

Over the years, we've talked comics with lots of people, many of them creators who work on your favorite comics.  Sadly, many of these interviews were for the early print edition of our newsletter, Dragon's Breath, and have been lost to the vagaries of time.  Some are more recent and appeared on the early versions of heroesanddragons.com.

We've gathered as many of these interviews as we could find and archived them here.  Who knows?  Maybe one day we'll do more ... .

Waid talks about The Kingdom (back when it was supposed to be an ongoing monthly series with art by Gene Ha and covers by Alex Ross) in our first known interview, from December 1996.
