We made a radio play! It turned out pretty dang awesome!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:07:57

Just listen to the episode! It's got a lot going on.

All of the voices in the radio play are either Adam or Christopher, other than Ruby, who was voiced by the talented and most excellent Heather Reusz!

Around the 40 minute mark, we get to your questions!

This Thursday is this month's Editor's Note! Next week is Gen Con! We're excited to see you - and record an episode with you - there!

Jul 17, 2018

Let's talk about looooove.

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:19:00

A strange change in format today: after some mild preamble, we start of by getting into your questions, just before the 5 minute mark!

Then, we spend over a third of the episode on a single letter...

The questions cover the vast majority of the things we wanted to talk about today, so enjoy the process of us keeping up with you fine folks!

Spoilers: At around an hour and 9 minutes in, we talk about a Biomancer story. A bit of the recording was lost here, but the thing we talked about that didn't make it into the episode is that, after her death, the body of the woman we mention is enshrined in Biomancer's lair, and sometimes he makes fleshchildren to look like her, but he always destroys them because he cannot match her perfection. For all his "work toward perfection", he cannot match the perfection of his one true love. Also, he's super creepy. /spoilers

After that, our brief "overview" - which is more of a "let's fill in the couple things no one asked about" bit - starts about an hour in.

For our Patreon supporters, the voting is already up for the August episodes, so make sure your voice is heard! Get your vote in now!

We go out to explore SPAAAAAAACE!!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:21:51

Right off the bat, we mention that the day this episode goes live, we're doing another live stream of the Sentinel Comics RPG! Come join us on our Twitch channel!

We then mention that our Patreon Collectors and Contributors can submit topics for August now. Check out this Patreon post about it!

At the two minute and 45 second mark, Adam realizes what we should name this episode. And lo, that is what the episode is now named. Let it be written.

Then, we finally get into space stuff.

The overview is mostly breaking down how space is used across the different eras of comics publication, and also how that all fits together to show the primary purpose of space in storytelling.

After that, we get into your questions just after the 12 minute mark, letting your questions about space shape the order we talk about the variety of space stories.

Questions spark us to talk about:

  • Golden Age Captain Cosmic stories
  • Captain Cosmic's (Hugh, not Ray) interactions with those stories
  • Plants (Space plants, that is)
  • Stuff we like making
  • A strange story
  • Humans compared to aliens
  • Cute aliens?
  • Humanoid aliens
  • Galactic Strike Force races
  • Singular Entities (briefly)
  • Galactra's race
  • Empyreon's race
  • Translators/alien languages
  • Magic in space
  • And more!

Around an hour and 14 minutes in, we talk a little about the future of space in the various worlds of Sentinel Comics.

And then we tease a bit more about Prime War before reading names and signing off.

Join us next week for an episode about love.

First things first: we're not lawyers and no one should ever take our advice! That aside, we're gonna give advice anyway!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 57:15

We start off with a bunch of disclaimers, because boy howdy are we NOT lawyers.

Then, we jump right into the lies.

The questions begin at five and a half minutes in.

Join us next week for an episode about EVERYTHING SPAAACE!!!

Diving deeply into 6 comic book issues!

Run Time:

Show Notes: 1:20:23

We start off by raving about a game we've been playing a lot lately... you'll just have to listen to find out!

Then, once we get down to brass tacks, as they say, we talk about a bunch of other comic books before we can even get to Dark Watch #1. But then, we do! And wow are there some twists and turns!

Around 47 minutes into the episode, we read your letters to you!

On Thursday of this week, we've got another Extrasode coming your way! We've already recorded it, and it's a weird one, but no Il Alimento, certainly. Whew! 

Keep on saving the Multiverse!
