Let's envision some friends!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:19:11

We're both settling into this new way of life more and are feeling way better, thanks for asking! As a result, we've got a real downer of a supporting cast episode, just so you know. 

We spend barely over one minute with banter and intro and just get right into it! And we create some stuff of various levels of good and bad feeling. 

Around 37 minutes in, we get to your questions! And what a delightful parcel of questions they are. Good stuff explored in the question section today.

Join us next time, as we kick off Adam's birth month!

Apr 21, 2020

Our first remote live editor's note! The audio quality is better than we feared it would be, but it's still not up to Trevor-approved-quality!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:13:00

Christopher's doing pretty well, but Adam's spiraling into chaos. If nothing else, this means that the more things change, the more they stay - in some small ways - the same.

Next month is May, which means it's Adam's birth-month! Celebrate! Here's the schedule for the month of partying: 

  • Tuesday, May 5th: Episode #143 - Writers' Room: Unity and Omnitron (X or U)
  • Tuesday, May 12th: Episode #144 - Writers' Room: post-Bloodsworn Sky-Scraper
  • Tuesday, May 19th: Editor’s Note #42
  • Tuesday, May 26th: Episode #145 - Writers’ Room: Leviathan

Here's a calendar!

We talked about a bunch of things this Editor's Note, including but not limited to:

  • OblivAeon, of course
  • Meta-Meta-Meta-Meta-Meta-Meta...
  • The Sentinels of Freedom video game, now on Steam! Go check it out!
  • Absolute Zero
  • Degenerate
  • Schema
  • Romance. Around the 41 minute mark, Amelia Ryans in the live chat made a Tinder profile for Absolute Zero. Here it is:

  • Theories of How the Multiverse Works
  • Sentinel Comics in other properties
  • Todd Lito
  • Parse in Rook City
  • Un-super heroes
  • Fake comic book backstory organization methods
  • and more!

Get your questions in for those upcoming topics! And thank you to all of our Patreon supporters - we do this for YOU!

A story of a new standard!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:31:46

Adam and I are both rather stir crazy already, but we're excited to be talking about Sentinel Comics! A lot going on here.

We banter a bit, but then dig into justifying Benchmark's backstory against issue numbers. We solve everything, and there are no more problems. Everything is fine. Oh, and also do a bit of thinking on morality/human nature.

Finally, we get into crafting and telling the story of the issue just after 14 minutes in.

We get to your questions at just before the 40 minute mark. We answer a lot of questions, not just about Benchmark, but also about Chrono-Ranger!

And, finally, we talk about the cover around 1 hour and 26 minutes in.

Thanks for listening! If you're on the Patreon, join us on Friday at 11 AM, Central time for the first live Editor's Note done entirely over the internet!

April will make a fool out of all of us!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:30:04

This episode is the first one we've ever recorded remotely! If you can tell right away, apologies for the drop in audio quality. We'd much rather record in person, but the health and safety of Adam's family and Christopher's cat are too important to sacrifice. If you can't detect a notable drop in quality, that's because Trevor is an AV wizard!

As a result of not recording using our usual setup, we aren't able to pause recording really, so these episodes are much more "uncut". Trevor still edits them quite a bit, but we attempt to push through and do as much "live" as possible. Does that make for a better listening experience? Heck, we don't know - we've never done this before!

We talk a bit about social distancing and other current events for a bit, get to work around 8 minutes in, get to your questions a little bit after the 45 minute mark, and then talk about the cover for a few minutes starting just before the 1 hour and 19 minute mark before calling it a day. All in all, a worthwhile Friday afternoon, that we now deliver to you on a Tuesday!

We look forward to unveiling more of the Multiverse for you soon!

Some frigid foes!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:33:59

Minimal goofs, mostly due to existential dread. Tough times, these.

Here's the image we discussed early on in the overview segment:

Did you make this? If you're the one who made this, let us know! Good job. We'd love to give you credit for your good work.

We hope you're all getting plenty of social distancing! Join us next month for more shelter in place and talk about Sentinel Comics!

Mar 24, 2020

Mar 17, 2020

Hello, friends! Or foes?! Who can tell?!?!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:12:49

So, this episode is the hero/villain team-up episode. We didn't NOT succeed at that... but you'll have to listen to find out what happens. It's certainly an attempt at the given topic!

We make up for it by talking about a bunch more comics than just one, if that's any consolation to you.

This Friday, March 20th, is our LIVE Editor's Note recording! If you're on the Letters Page Patreon, please come join in at 11 AM, Central! We'll be in the Discord as well to take your questions. And, if you're a Contributor on the Patreon, the voting is up now for next month's episodes! Go vote! Voting is important!

Chrono-Ranger in Feudal Japan!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 58:28

Under an hour?! An episode that doesn't break the hour mark?!?!

It's true.

We only had two questions for this episode, so the questions section is much shorter than usual. Not to fear, though - we've already been amassing questions for the next couple episodes, and there are lots. This one just happened to be a bit more on the quiet side.

We get to the overview portion in which we establish the type of story, determine when it lands, and then craft and tell the tale, starting a bit before the 4 minute mark. That process takes us more than half of the episode, so we get to questions after 38 minutes in. Then, only several minutes later, we talk about the cover right after the 51 minute mark. And that's the show!

Thanks everyone for listening! Don't forget, if you're on the Letters Page Patreon, you can join us for a live show on March 20th! And if you're not on the Letters Page Patreon... well, you could be!

Mar 3, 2020

We have been wrong in the past about the Naturalist, but not today!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:20:47

We get into a LOT on this one! We just sort of hit the ground running, and keep up the pace for quite a while!

For those of you who like timestamps, we get to the overview around 5 and a half minutes in, the question section just before the 35 minute mark, and finally button things up around an hour and 14 minutes in. A couple minutes after that, we can't remember how the link to our Patreon is spelled. You can find the answer here!

Thanks for listening, everyone! When the next episode goes live, I'll be in international waters doing my best to avoid that COVID-19, but I'll be back the week after that for a live show! See you then!

Parse gets murdery!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:26:31

To be fair, Parse started out very murdery, and then mellowed over time. Today, we tell one of those early stories, and we do not hold back! Slight content warning on this one for (audio discussion of) graphic violence, as well as some drugs (not really drugs used, though - just drugs being generally around). Also, she's a jerk. Just so you know. Forewarned is forearmed, and with the amount Parse uses that bow, she's gotta have great forearms, right?

At around the 47 minute mark, we get into questions. You asked them - we answer them!

We talk a bit about the cover just after 1 hour and 16 minutes in, though you likely have already seen the cover by now. It's in these show notes!

Thanks everyone for listening! We're getting close to March, in which the recording and episode release schedule starts to get more normal. Thanks for bearing with us!
