A whole book of creepy crawlies and the evil that lurks in the darkness!

(No, not the book in that picture. A different book.)

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:46:28

Lots of fun stories and mythology in this one!

We start off with where this book shows up in the history of Sentinel Comics.

Pretty quickly, we get to your questions! Just after 6 minutes in, we're already going into the Questions segment, and we use that to guide the stories from the Diamond Book of Monsters.

And then, A bit after the 10 minute mark, we're in on our first long-form story of this episode. Buckle-up!

After wrapping that up, we dive into another long story, starting a bit before the 28 minute mark. Zoom!

Then, we get into more question and answer type stuff, but we do reveal a lot more mythology of the dark corners of the Multiverse!

There is even a future segment in this episode! Starting around an hour and 36 minutes in, we discuss the future of the Diamond Book of Monsters.

We're recording an Episode AND an Extrasode this coming Friday! Get your questions in now for the Supplemental Legacy episode and the Food podcast Extrasode by the end of day Thursday, April 26th!

Thank you as always to all of our listeners and supporters!

Let's get animated!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 2:29:40

There is a lot of stuff in this episode! The first season of the SCAU (Sentinel Comics Animated Universe) is made up of 26 episodes and a movie, and we get into ALL of that!

We talk about the episodes for over an hour, going pretty in-depth on many of them.

At around an hour and 28 minutes, we start in on the movie.

Then, at the one hour and 51 minute mark, we get to your questions.

Also! A future section, about two hours and 21 minutes in!

The dread scion! It only exists to exercise the will of OblivAeon!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:20:24

We start off with an overview of when and how Progeny first showed up in the pages of Sentinel Comics, starting with the Freedom Five book.

Just before the 18 minute mark, we briefly get back into the debate of "does Progeny's head blasting off into space look cool." Spoilers: there is no real resolution to this argument.

Just after 19 minutes in, we get to the Progeny origin story, which is told in the pages of Prime Wardens, Vol. 2, after that first Progeny story.

Then, just after the 24 minute mark, Progeny goes to space! A cool K.N.Y.F.E. and Captain Cosmic story is told.

We start in on your questions 30 minutes into the episode.

Don't forget, the Sentinels of Freedom video game is currently live on Kickstarter! Go check it out!

Patreon supporters: we'll be posting the topic submission form today or tomorrow and then voting will go live next week! We'll post the details on all that on the Patreon page.

The first ever Extrasode! 

Show Notes:

Run Time: 2:14:54

These were intended to be for Patreon supporters only, but we polled them, and they voted overwhelmingly in favor of making them available to all Letters Page listeners! That said, we did record it live with interactions from our Contributors, and then shortly after recording it, we posted this video for Patreon backers, so they got it first! Now, the episode goes live for everyone!

This Extrasode is probably more serious than most will be, but it's still a lot of fun. We go deep into the history of how we met, how we starting making stuff together, and how that ended up being Sentinels of the Multiverse and Greater Than Games!

Christopher is at PAX East right now, and Adam is about to fly to the UK! If you're at PAX East, find Christopher and say hi! If you're in the UK, go find Adam - he's around there somewhere!

We're talking about these so familiar and yet so different heroes!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:21:26

Welcome to April, and a whole new format! The next 3 months will feature different types of episodes than what you're used to, but they're going to be great! Interested in having input in what we talk about? Check out our Patreon! That's the best way to get involved in what we're doing here with the Letters Page.

We jump around in time a bit to start off, but then! We actually lay out the history of a book we've only hinted at before and never directly quoted or defined: Disparation! Disparation Volumes 1 and 2, at that!

Then, after telling all that backstory and even going briefly over a few other Disparation issues, we finally get into the story of this alternate reality Dark Watch.

Just a minute before the one hour mark, we get into your questions!

Thanks so much for listening!

Also, the Sentinels of Freedom video game is live on Kickstarter now! Go check it out - we're seriously excited about all of the storytelling we get to do with this project!

Get your questions in for the Animated Series and NightMist's book of monsters!
