A return to Disparation!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:34:54

It's been a long time since we did a Disparation episode, and man, it feels good to be back at it! In the words of our very own Trevor:

Whoa, slow down there, Trevor! Praise of that caliber is likely to go to our heads!

But before we can get into that, we've gotta goof around on a variety of topics, of course. But only for about 7 minutes!

Then, we get into a bunch of backstory, some temporal positioning, and some issue number questing. And then! A story! A story in which motivations run deeper than we even initially realized! 

At just after the 48 minute mark, we get to your many questions. And heck, we almost answer all of them! More or less! Give or take!

We talk very briefly about the cover seen above, as it ended up being a straight forward concept, but wow Adam knocked it out of the park again, right? Damn that looks cool.

Join us this Friday for Editor's Note #45! For real! We mean it! We're really finally going to do that long lost Editor's Note! Nothing's gonna stop us now!

 

Probably.

Time for a nice tall frosty one!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:33:19

We do some marketing goofs, at least partially inspired by Sentinels of the Multiverse: Definitive Edition currently on Kickstarter!

But then! We get into telling the story of the issue, which we actually do in a very non-sequential/chronological way! The actual order of the stories in the issue is clear and unpackable, but we get a bit obtuse about it. But that ends up creating some moments that we're particularly proud of. Anyway, enjoy!

After all that storytelling, we get into your questions, starting off with a historically long question from Liz C.! She gets to a lot of the good stuff, and yet we still take even more questions!

And then we talk briefly about the cover, which can be seen above.

Don't forget to check out Sentinels of the Multiverse: Definitive Edition on Kickstarter! And join us next week for our return to Disparation for the first time in a long time!

I promise that there will be at least one coonskin cap in this episode.

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:46:46

Our timing was off! At the start of the episode, we claimed that the Kickstarter was already live, but we're backwards: the Kickstarter goes live one hour after this episode starts. So, if you started listening to this episode the moment it came out, you'd want to pause halfway through to go check out that Kickstarter! We'll add a link to the Kickstarter to the show notes below when it goes live.

Adam and I have been looking forward to digging into these tales for a while, so we went into this one with a list of people we wanted to talk about, but not a lot of planning. On purpose! We wanted this creative process to be pretty transparent on the "process" side of things.

Ended up with at least a couple very solid character ideas out of this, plus a slew of stories, especially from the earlier ages of Sentinel Comics.

We're on the cusp of a big month here. Lots of fun episodes coming up, AND there's that Kickstarter! Speaking of which, this link will go to the Kickstarter campaign once it's live!

Until next time, Sentinels!

Paul is back! Back again! Paul is back, Paul is back, Paul is back!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:18:51

We talk a lot about stabs. We're into stabs here.

Upcoming schedule!

  • Tuesday, April 6th: Episode #172: Writers’ Room: A Day in the Life — Absolute Zero
  • Tuesday, April 13th: Episode #173: Writers’ Room: Disparation — Citizen Storm vs. The Primal Wardens
  • Tuesday, April 20th: Editor’s Note #45 (?!?!)
  • Tuesday, April 27th: Episode #174: Classic Episode: xxtz’Hulissh

So many questions! And also some game shows! What's not to like?

Join us next time for an exciting Creative Process!

I hope you're wearing green today! 

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:30:36

Some goofs, but then, a story!

Actually, no, then another set of goofs. And THEN a story.

Lots of interesting stuff in this one. Building out a whole set of stuff that we've had floating around in the shadows but have never formalized. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Around 46 minutes in, we take some questions... and provide answers to them! 

As we mention on the air, this week's live show is on Thursday instead of Friday, and it's not Editor's Note #45. Of course it's not. We may never get to Editor's Note #45. We'll keep trying! But this Thursday's recording is an unexpected return of the Publishers' Note! Paul and Christopher will be live for our Patreon supporters at 11 AM, Central Time. If you have questions for the Publishers' note, but sure to submit them by end of day Wednesday!

Thanks for listening!

People, places, and odds-and-ends!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:48:14

This is an interesting "creative process" episode, in that you get to see a slightly darker side of the creative process. Both Adam and I were feeling pretty rough at the time of recording, but we slogged on and made it happen. By the end, we feel like it turned out to be solid, but we wanted to be honest about our process here.

After about 55 minutes of goofs, storytelling, and place-crafting, we get to your questions! Thanks for asking them!

If you want to ask more questions, use our handy form! If you want to be part of the nonsense — especially during live shows — join our Patreon! So many options!

Until next time!

Why must they fight?

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:23:14

We talk about the weather! Gripping content, right? 

Then, we talk about Fanatic and NightMist! (Or at least we attempt to, after a few false starts and rabbit trails.) Not as interesting as the weather, but it'll have to do!

Unsurprisingly, there were a few outstanding questions about each of these characters, which we get to in record time at around the 28 minute mark.

Another tale: told!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:36:15

Back to the drawing writing board!

We do some goofs, as per usual, then get into it. We set the story straight on Fashion — her appearances, her character changes, her disappearance, her reappearance... look, there's a lot.

Then! We craft a tale! For you!

After over half an hour of story making, we get to question answering! And then cover discussing, the results of which you can see above.

It's the longest Bullpen ever!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 2:10:18

Welcome to Chris Burton, AKA Braithwhite! Right at the top, we establish that we'll call him "Braithwhite" for the purposes of the episode, and then we all go on to call him a variety of names over the course of the following two hours. Enjoy the confusion!

Here's the upcoming schedule!

  • Tuesday, March 2nd: Episode #168 - Writers' Room: NightMist vs. Fanatic
  • Tuesday, March 9th: Episode #169 - Creative Process: Hero HQs
  • Tuesday, March 16th: Episode #170 - Writers’ Room: Luck o’ the Setback
  • Tuesday, March 23rd: Editor’s Note #45 (THE REAL RETURN! PROBABLY!)
  • Tuesday, March 30th: Episode #171 - Creative Process: American Folklore

After all that, we dive into questions all about Sentinels of the Multiverse: Definitive Edition!

We hope that this giant pile of Qs and As answer all of the questions you could have about Definitive Edition! There are some reveals in here! 

Thanks for listening! If you want to be part of future live episodes, join us on the Letters Page Patreon. And if you have letters that you want us to read, submit them using this handy form!

Delightful devices... with dangerous drawbacks!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:36:36

We goof a bit at the top, but we also talk about what the last week+ of news of/reactions to Sentinels of the Multiverse: Definitive Edition. Remember, this coming Friday, we're recording a Bullpen all about Definitive Edition, so get your questions in now!

Just after the 5 minute mark, we delve into treats and tricks.

At around 36 minutes in, we get distracted by watching a video. This is that video.

Finally, we get to your questions at around the 57 minute mark.

At the end, we descent into madness. Why? Blame it on the boogie!

See you next time! If you're one of our Patreon supporters, join us this Friday for a LIVE Bullpen!
