Welcome to The Letters Page!

In this podcast, creators Christopher Badell and Adam Rebottaro talk for about ninety minutes each episode about a hero, villain, event, or something else entirely from the wide world of Sentinel Comics. They also answer your questions!

We post episodes every Tuesday morning at around 10 AM, Central Time. We also occasionally post Thursday morning Interludes!

In an early episode, we mentioned that a Letters Page Bingo type thing could be fun. As a result, awesome Letters Page listener Kyle Grossman has created THIRTY different Letters Page Bingo cards, and you can find them all here!

Time travel and psychic shenanigans! The many forms of Vanessa Long!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 105:49

We deal with multiple realities - and multiple Vanessa Longs (Vanessas Long?) in the first ten minutes, so buckle up!

Brief show notes today, because: Gen Con! 

So, we promised a link to the Lazer Ryders Soundtrack in the show notes. Here it is on Spotify. It's also available on Bandcamp. Not sure if there's a better place to get it, but those are both pretty legit! Also, for a sample, check out the song Trevor chose for our episode-ending music.

The questions segment has a bunch of nonsense about Biomancer's creations, the Cult of Gloom, and even the kingdom of Cooltopia? I don't know what's happening with our own podcast these days. 

In the future section, we have two spoiler sections. The last bit of the Sentinel Tactics future is spoilers (from 95:30 to 96:35), and the entire Sentinel Comics RPG timeline segment is also spoilers. (from 97:09 to 99:20). 

As mentioned, we're already at Gen Con! If you'll be at Gen Con on Saturday, come crash our Letters Page Live recording panel on Saturday!

Also, because we're in Indianapolis and away from our office all this week, we've already recorded the RevoCorp/Benchmark episode! It's too late for your questions! While we're gone, if you want to ask questions for upcoming episodes, I'll leave you with this hint: we have just begun to cover the Prime Wardens and their nemeses...

Akash'Bhuta, Akash'Thriya, and more!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 118:27

This show covers more time than any other episode. It's also one of our longest episodes! Appropriate.

Around 5:40, we posit that this episode won't be longer than the Argent Adept episode. We were wrong. But just barely! Still, we shouldn't have been surprised.

It takes us about half an hour to go through the first couple hundred million years. Then, we start slowing down, only covering thousands or even hundreds of years at a time. Bear with us! We eventually get more into the blow-by-blow stuff that happens in the pages of Sentinel Comics.

Recommended listening: the Argent Adept episode, and the Naturalist episode.

At the beginning of the question section - around 45 minutes in - we clear up a thing that we straight up did wrong. We have officially said before the Akash'Bhuta's first appearance was in Prime Wardens #1. There is no way that's correct. Her first appearance was in Virtuoso of the Void #12, and we even know that! We were shocked to look back at what we'd released publicly. We just wrote down the wrong first appearance. We're very sorry. 

On to the rest of the fantastic questions! So much to unpack!

A few fishy things happen in the other questions. Another letter from the Cult of Gloom, Princess Cool asserts that she's the original, and we're pretty sure that Biomancer is up to something...

In the future section, we first go over when the timeline split occurs in the Akash story. Then we talk about the rough stuff going on in the Sentinel Tactics timeline. 

For the Sentinel Comics RPG timeline, we have to use the SPOILERS tag. From 107:00 to 114:22 so that we can talk about [redacted] and [redacted]. We also take one more question! Enjoy!

As we mention at the end of the episode, we're recording on Thursday this week, and we're actually recording TWO episodes on that day, due to Gen Con. So! Get your Visionary and RevoCorp questions in by early Thursday morning at the latest! Anything after that won't make the cut!

Looking forward to seeing some of you next week at Gen Con!

Buckle in, folks! We're going to meet a bunch of Virtuosos of the Void today, as well as delving into the Void itself!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 117:59

 

In the first portion of the podcast, we go through the history of the Argent Adept's appearances in the pages of Sentinel Comics, from his origin in the Toll of Destiny limited series, through the Virtuoso of the Void ongoing series. We cover a ton of stories at a pretty breakneck pace, as we had SO MANY fantastic questions that we wanted to make sure to let your wonderful input shine, you lovely listeners!

We finish that entire overview in about half an hour! The majority of the rest of the episode is questions!

Shortly after the 40 minute mark, Christopher gets real passionate about music. This speaks to why/how Argent Adept was created. Heck, we both go into even more music stuff in the next 5-10 minutes after that.

Just after 80 minutes in, we talk about the cross-over promo card we made with Worldbuilder's Charity. You can get that card - in normal card form, foil card form, or both - here!

Spoilers! Many spoilers! Pretty much the entire future section is a spoiler, and it's tagged as such within the episode. If you're wanting to skip the spoilers, don't listen to anything between 107:52 and 114:33. That's where we spill the beans!

Thanks for listening! Get your questions in for all flavors of Akash'Entities now!
