We did a Gen Con live! Sort of!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:47:42

Right off the bat, I engage in an entirely visual goof, which doesn't work terribly well as radio... Fortunately, you can watch the video here

Trevor made some very special versions of the songs used in this song, including cool videos! Worth watching. 

We goof around a standard amount, taking roughly 7 minutes of episode time to do so, and then we take questions of all sorts, ranging so far and wide as to be impossible to properly represent here. What sorts of things do we talk about? You'll have to listen to find out!

Friday of this week, Adam and I are recording the "Legacy Supporting Cast" episode that you all wanted so badly. Totally a thing you demanded and not a thing we made happen. *innocent whistling* ANYWAY, get your Legacy questions in, now!

Jul 28, 2020

Let's make some magical friends! (Spoiler: most of these people are not magical, and many of them are not friends, either.)

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:25:50

We goof around for a few minutes, and then get down to the business of making friends for a hard-to-be-friends-with hero!

At around 38 minutes in, we get to your questions, on a variety of topics.

This coming Friday is our recording of the Gen Con live recording! It'll be live on our YouTube channel, with the link posted on our Patreon. Please join us at 11 AM, Central Time!

Let's go to SPAAAAACE!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:17:13

We start off by some questionable poll campaigning. If you're on the Letters Page Patreon, let us try to convince you that the Legacy Supporting Cast episode needs more votes than all other episodes! Why? For reasons we'll reveal this Friday!

Then, at around 5 minutes in, we actually start in on the overview.

We do some storytelling, including digging into a limited series we've only ever talked about once before, back in the olden days.

We craft a story with a bunch of new names and events and bugs and a new metal? And a spaceship?! Lots going on here.

Finally, we get to your questions at around the 40 minute mark.

If you're on the Letters Page Patreon, join us this Friday for a live Editor's Note recording! We hope to see you then!

Let's get pet-riotic!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:33:13

We ramble a bit at the start about what we'll be doing in about a month for this year's very different Gen Con live episode, and then we talk about the nature of today's episode. Then, finally, only 6ish minutes in, we actually dive in. (And end up having a great time! Spoilers, I guess.)

You can tell we've been recording too long a little after the 1 hour mark, as we both unintentionally drop some swears. Trevor cleans up after us. Thank you/sorry, Trevor!

We finally break from making up pets stories at around the 1 hour and 5 minute mark and answer your questions.

Catch you next week for a K.N.Y.F.E. in space story! Get your questions in now!

Let's get super ultra kawaii!!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:46:06

So, we get into the meta-topic right off the bat, and Adam has to explain a bunch of stuff to me because I'm just not as familiar with the medium. Which, turns out to be fine, because I'm familiar enough with the tropes to make the story happen! But, I'm getting ahead of myself. For that, you'll have to listen to the overview, which starts just before 14 minutes into the episode. (But before that, we go on about some of our favorite anime movies and TV shows.)

The overview section is all over the place. We have to figure out where this story lands in Sentinel Comics history, what kind of story we're telling, who it's about, surprise ourselves with who the main characters are... it's a lot. But! We make it work, and are pleased with how it turns out.

At a bit before the 1 hour and 4 minute mark, we get to your questions! They are many, and not just about today's topic - we also talk about some aliens. Just because.

At 1 hour and 38ish minutes in, we talk a bit about the cover, which you can see above. 

Next episode will be a Creative Process all about pets in Sentinel Comics! How's that going to go? Only time will tell!

Another Editor's Note, live from the internet!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:32:44

Here's the upcoming schedule!

  • Tuesday, July 7th: Episode #150 - Creative Process: July 4th Pet Special

In this episode, we cover a variety of topics, including:

Catch you next time!

Jun 16, 2020

We're all over the place on this one!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:47:38

This episode took us longer to record than anything else we've made in... a long time. We got started started around 11 AM and didn't finish until 4 PM. Whew!

Anyway, enjoy these additions to the world of Sentinel Comics! Do these characters seem not much for you? Well, yeah, that's why they never really took off - D-List all the way!

At around the 57 minute mark, we finally get to questions. We answer questions about D-List heroes, but also about various Thorathian topics, just because there were a lot of them in the backlog.

We hope to see you Friday at 11 AM (Central Time) for a LIVE Editor's Note! Want to watch it live and even take part? Join our Patreon!

Let's talk about Tyler Vance! 

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:10:06

We craft three stories, possibly in record time? We were shocked at how well it went, honestly. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

After speedy storytelling, we get into your questions just after the 29 minute mark. 

We talk about the cover - which you can see above - at about 1 hour and 2 minutes in. Adam went all in on the Barry Windsor-Smith style!

If you're a contributor to the Letters Page Patreon, voting is up now! Go tell us what to do! If you're not on the Letters Page Patreon, maybe today is the day? Only you can decide!

Catch y'all next time!

Jun 2, 2020

Adam's birth month is over! There will be feasting and dancing in May next year!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:15:31

After some birth month/day talk, we get into the overview a couple minutes in, where we first attempt to clear up some misconceptions, which devolves into a conversation not at all pertinent to the world of Sentinel Comics. Then, we once again go into too many issues for a single Writers' Room episode, but not as bad as other recent episodes. We just have a penchant for writing in arcs. 

At a bit before the 38 minute mark, we get to your delightful questions! And then, at just before the 1 hour and 10 minute mark, we talk very briefly about the cover, which you can see above.

If you're a contributor to the Letters Page Patreon, the topic submission form for this month went live yesterday! Let us know who you want us to talk about! We're settling into the new way things work here, and we're excited to create even more stories for you.
