San Diego Comic Con 2015: The Interviews


For four days out of the year, the San Diego Convention Center transforms into a gathering place for a staggering number of creatives. Representatives from all manner of media - films, television, video games, and yes, even comics - come to discuss their latest works.

We took advantage of the opportunity, lining up conversations with prominent artists, writers, advocates and even one sitting congressman and civil rights legend.

For those who lost track in amongst the deluge of pop culture news, homemade costumes and geeky pomp and circumstance, here's a collection of the slew of interviews TechTimes and T-Lounge conducted on-site at this year's Comic Con

Jeffrey Brown: A veteran of introspective and deeply personal memoir comics, Jeffrey Brown has found a second career of sorts writing and drawing idiosyncratic Star Wars books including Darth Vader and Son and Jedi Academy.

Charles Brownstein: The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund director discusses the ever-changing nature of his foundation's first amendment battles.

Guy Delcourt: Owner of the large French comics publishing house of the same name, Guy Delcourt discusses what drove him to team with Comixology to deliver hundreds of translations to an English speaking readership.

Jaime Hernandez: Beloved indie cartoonist Jaime Hernandez discuss what draws him to strong female characters in his series Love and Rockets and why Mad Max: Fury Road's approach wasn't exactly rocket science.
