Sorry about being light on episodes lately. We canceled a couple shows, so we stitched together some outtakes and made a sort-of extra episode. In this one, we talk off-the-cuff about story structure and writing characters. In particular, we talk at length about the silent loner character and how he is all but forgotten in today’s world of massive back-stories and overblown character arcs that don’t actually tell us anything interesting about the characters themselves.
Then we switch focus and talk to Pablo about G-Gundam. This is not an official topic show about G-Gundam, so anyone who wants to appear on such an episode is still invited, although we’ve gotten many requests.
Oh, and we talk about Spaceballs a lot. Because why not?
This is a show about a webcomic series. We’ll back to our regularly-scheduled nonsense next week. For now, sit back, relax, and enjoy this special video presentation (actually, it’s more like a slide show) about this comic project that Ben and I worked on a few years ago.
There’s also a podcast version, if you don’t want to be glued to your screen, but we strongly recommend the video.
Crossoverlord was a labor of love and something I’ve become very proud of. We’ve never before told the story of how this comic came to be, and so here we are to tell the tale.
Joining Ben and me are Al Schroeder of Mindmistress, Abby of Green Avenger, and Remus of Indefensible Positions. It was an honor to work with these wonderful people, and I was happy to finally put something together that the fans could enjoy.
