Gen Con Live 2019!

We had a very fun Gen Con this year! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:28:49 We talk about all manner of things, enjoy a very different musical guest than ever before, and are entirely serious the entire time! (One of those things might not be true. Hard to say.) And here's a Trevor's eye view of the room before we started while people were still coming in. There were a lot of people this year! Good thing Gen Con gave us a bigger room than ever before. Let's pack even more in next...


Microsode #2, 2019

We're at it again - posting something when we said we wouldn't. What rapscallions. You can't take us anywhere. Show Notes: Run Time: 8:13 This is the second week of our two week Gen Con hiatus, and yet, we just couldn't NOT post SOMETHING, right? Last week was Gen Con, as we lie about on the air. For this Microsode, we answer the NEWEST, the FRESHEST, the RIGHT OFF THE PRESSES letter - one sent in mere hours before we recorded! Amazing. So fresh and so clean clean. For those of you who...


Microsode #1, 2019

You thought we weren't doing an episode this week, didn't you? Well, guess what... you're right! And yet, what's this?!?! Show Notes: Run Time: 6:58 Today is the first Tuesday of our two week of Gen Con hiatus. In today's Microsode, we answer the oldest question on the books! It's from a long-forgotten time - the distant and most ancient past. Wow! We look forward to seeing so many of you at Gen Con! Come say hi! As always, thank you for your continuing listenership and support,...


Episode #117 - Writers' Room: Freedom Four #88

Our first ever Writers' Room episode! We're going to make a story together! Show notes: Run Time: 1:39:55 Only a couple minutes in, we claim we're getting right down to work... and then we goof around talking about cuts of steak or something. But then! We tell you what we're talking about, who's in the issue, and build the entire story of that issue out on the air! After a LOT of work, we take a fun assortment of questions, starting around the 1 hour and 15 minute mark. No episode...


Editor's Note #32

Show Notes: Run Time: 1:11:01 At the start of the show, we talk a bit of shop about possibilities for new formats of episodes. At the time of recording, the votes weren't in yet for next month's episodes, but there are now! So: Upcoming schedule: And here's our recording schedule! Around the 7 minute mark, we start in on your questions on so many topics, such as: Thanks to all of you listeners, to our Patreon supporters, and to our families, who never believed we could make any of...


Episode #116 - Creative Process: Shear Force

We make stuff up - as we often do - but not really for Sentinel Comics! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:23:20 We build out the world (and even a bit of the meta-verse) for the Shear Force property, as introduced in episode 102. We get into the overview just before the 4 minute mark, and there we get down to brass tacks about figuring about just what IS Shear Force. There's an animated show, and there are comics, but most importantly, there are toys. This all definitely hinges around toys. We...


Episode #115 - Wraith's Rogues Gallery

Let's get villainous! Show Notes: Run Time: 59:09 After some mild goofs, we get into your questions, and you ask all the right things! Listen to learn more about so many villains we've never spoken about before, plus a decent handful that you're already familiar with!


Episode #114 - Create-a-Thing Live!

Good morning, everyone! Let's create Sentinel Comics content! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:37:31 This live episode was fun! It moved in a way that we didn't expect - we got into Sentinels of the Multiverse card game content! How? What? Impossible! Right? You'll just have to listen to find out! I don't want to say much more than that; I would hate to spoil the surprises. Thanks to everyone who joined us live, and all of our supporters and listeners, like you!


Editor's Note #31

We take your questions. We give you answers. You know the deal. Or do you? Show Notes: Run Time: 1:11:01 At the start of the show, we talk a bit of shop about possibilities for new formats of episodes. At the time of recording, the votes weren't in yet for next month's episodes, but there are now! So: Upcoming schedule: Then, at around the 12 minute mark, we get to your questions! We cover such exciting topics as: Thanks as always to Trevor, our Patreon supporters, Sentinels fans...


Episode #113 - The New Slaughterhouse Six

Remember, even this new team can't spell "Slaughterhouse" without the words "laughter". And also the word "louse", incidentally. Show Notes: Run Time: 1:06:46 We start off with some birthday talk, then some eyeball talk, like you do. Then, we actually do an overview just after the 5 minute mark! Don't worry, it's a VERY short overview. Then, we get right on to your questions at around 8 minutes in. Your questions cover the line-up of the team, including original members like Glamour,...


Episode #112 - Void Guard Follow-Up

Let's talk more about these powerful heroes! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:10:07 This show is a follow-up to our longest episode ever! So, consider that required listening for what we're talking about here. Adam's eye is ruined and he'll never see again, or something like that. I might be exaggerating here. About 6 minutes into the episode, we go to questions, which are organized by character (after the first couple more general questions). We cover Dr. Medico, Mainstay, The Idealist, and...


Episode #111 - Magic in the Multiverse

Let's get MAGICAL! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:37:44 Let's answer a lot of questions about the how, what, and why of magic! And more! As of this posting, the next episode (all about Void Guard) has already been recorded due to this weeks convention, but feel free to send in questions for the other episodes for the month of June! Also, if you're at UK Games Expo this week, come by the Greater Than Games booth and say hi - Christopher will be there talking about all manner of games, though...


Editor's Note #30

An Editor's Note all about us being bad at Science! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:24:11 Here's the upcoming schedule! After only about 5 minutes of light goofs and scheduling, we get into your questions, which are mostly the very "well actuallies" we asked for. But we do have a secret surprise guest appearance in the second half of this Editor's Note! You'll just have to listen to find out more!


Episode #110 - The Death (and Return) of Anthony Drake

This episode is not just about death, it's also about failure! Creative failure! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:15:41 After only a minute or so of goofing around, we actually do a very brief overview section, just to get you all caught up on the when and a bit of the why of this story. But then! You have asked all the right questions, so we let the questions section handle the bulk of the actual storytelling. That starts at around the 4 minute mark. Just so you know, the storytelling ends up...


Episode #109 - Development Hell

Stories that NEVER HAPPENED?!!?!?!?!??! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:12:53 We get to your questions right away, before we even hit the 2 minute mark. And we tell SO MANY stories that never were. Thank you to all of our listeners, especially our Patreon supporters! Get your questions for the Death of Anthony Drake (and anything else Prime Wardens related) in now!


Episode#108 - Lightspeed

Let's pick up the pace! Show notes: Run Time: 1:02:17 We get right into the story with this one, and actually have an Overview segment! It's been a while since we've had one of those. After telling the story of the Lightspeed limited series, we get to your questions at around the 30 minute mark. Thank you to all you wonderful folks who support the Letters Page Patreon! We couldn't do this without you. Catch ya next time!


Editor's Note #29

We're gonna answer so many questions! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:21:16 We do a lot of goofing around before we get to the schedule, but here's the schedule! Tuesday, May 7th: Episode #109 - Development Hell: cancelled storiesTuesday, May 14th: Episode #110 - The Death (And Return) of Anthony DrakeTuesday, May 21st: Editor’s Note #30Tuesday, May 28th: Episode #111 - Magic in the Multiverse And here's what our calendar looks like: You may note that the recording for Editor's Note #30 is...


Episode #107 - Temporal Targets: La Comodora and Chrono-Ranger

What were these two up to as they transcended time and space?! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:00:32 We're a mess in this one, but it's probably still worth it! We goof around (and also explain why things are extra weird in this episode) for a few minutes before finally getting to explaining the purpose/angle of this episode, and then getting into your questions a bit after the 7 minute mark. The questions are full of interesting ideas and fascinating queries... to which we have some...


Episode #106 - Fall of the Prime Wardens

An episode in which we get into some real talk about one of our most powerful teams of heroes. Show Notes: Run Time: 1:05:34 With a minimum of banter - mostly due to the somber nature of today's undertaking - we get into the questions at the 2 minute mark. Speedy! Then, in response to the very first question, we tell the entire story of the Fall of the Prime Wardens, from before the prelude through the end of the arc, and in fact the end of the Prime Wardens book. So, essentially, we do...


Episode #105 - Science of the Multiverse

Let's "learn" about SCIENCE! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:29:37 Disclaimer! We are not scientists! Like, not really! That will become increasingly clear over the course of the episode! Even still, have fun! After a fairly standard amount of goofing around, we finally get into your questions, starting just before the 4 minute mark. Thanks to all of our listeners, especially our Patreon supporters! Catch you next week!
