Episode #122 - Creative Process: Count Barzakh

10/1/2019
More
It's the first creepy episode of the second most creepy month: October! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:12:50 After confessing our sins, we get to our creative process overview at around the 6 minute mark. And we are on fire! (At least, in our humble opinions.) Apparently, we should create in the face of adversity more often! One successful creation segment later, we get to your questions, at just before the 50 minute mark. Thank you for your questions! Also, thanks for listening! Don't...

Episode #121 - Creative Process: Minions and Henchlings

9/24/2019
More
We talk about the bad guys who work for the bad guys... and also some deep philosophical topics? Show Notes: Run Time: 1:40:05 Good morning, everyone! After a very short amount of banter, we go to an overview only two and a half minutes into the show. There, we go through most every major villain and how they use minions, if at all, who those minions are, and more! This process ends up taking a while, and we have a fun time of it, all told. We hope you do, too! Then, just before the...

Episode #119 - Writers' Room: Disparation Vol. 1 Issue #1

9/3/2019
More
We create and tell the first official Disparation story! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:30:19 This one is a delightful jaunt of an episode. We're excited to dig into a Disparation story again - each of the previous Disparation-focused episodes have been a lot of fun, and getting to tell the first ever is a blast! Also, hot damn, that cover is awesome. Adam continues to knock it out of the park. If you're reading this and looking at the cover before listening to the episode, you'll just have...

We're gonna talk about the WHOLE THING! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:58:22 This episode, we answer so many questions from all of you! You had questions on everything from mechanics, to hero creation, to story, to both future and past info... so many things! As a result, we end up with a longer episode than we've had in a long time! We hope you enjoy all our answers! We're heading into September with new episodes - two Writers' Room episodes! Here's the calendar: To be part of our live...

It's time for another live Editor's Note! Show Notes: Run Time: 1:23:02 We reveal the schedule! Upcoming schedule: There will be a recording calendar posted soon, but we need to figure out some September recording times, due to the travels of both Christopher and Adam. We talk about a ton of things in this episode, including but not limited to:

Gen Con Live 2019!

8/13/2019
More
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...

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,...

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...

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

7/9/2019
More
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

7/2/2019

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!

6/25/2019

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!

Episode #113 - The New Slaughterhouse Six

6/11/2019
More
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...

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...
