It feels so different than the same questions asked at Comic Con. You get insight into things not covered or asked on a panel.

I don’t have to travel anywhere, queue, or fork out a fortune. The Companion’s events are like an entire Comic-Con from the comfort of my home.

I don’t think anwhere publishes articles like this anymore. It makes such a change from clickbait based on tweets. This is actually about something meaningful, and feels like it was written just for me.
