Super Haters Destruct-O-Cast #1 – Genesis

Super Haters Destruct-O-Cast

Welcome to the debut of the Destruct-O-Cast, a new weekly podcast devoted exclusively to the Super Haters*! Nick (that’s me!) dives into feedback from Facebook and Twitter, answering questions and dropping shoutouts.

Dan Greenwald asks about Nick’s character creation process for the Haters, while Byron Winton wants to know what’s up with Destruct-O-Tron’s new political stance in the current Republican Motherhood story arc.

To leave us feedback of your own, tweet @super_haters, write on the Super Haters Facebook wall, or call our automated comment line at 412-567-7606 and we’ll play your message on the show.

After the end theme, Nick sends out special thanks to the godfathers of the Super Haters, Neal Shyam and Seth Fronzoli. And here’s a link to more about the band that partially inspired Destruct-O-Tron’s name, Disasternauts (on the show, I call them Destructonauts… whoops!!!).

NEXT: Super Haters co-writer Justique joins in to discuss the creative process and answer more of your questions.

*In case you don’t already know, Super Haters is a Mon-Fri superhero satire webcomic starring Destruct-O-Tron and Mind’s Eye.

    Hey, I think when you have so much referencing images, it might be cool to have it as a video with static images that come up when you are talking about the individual characters or whatever.

    The Silber Comics Twitter thing ( http://twitter.com/SilberComics ) is totally following you now. But yeah, I am trying out a totally different Twitter strategy thing than you are this time out to see what happens. It’s a content driven instead of community driven thing & if it’s successful I’ll let you know. I just went through & followed back all the folks that it seemed like I should (e.g. I knew who they were).

    I got Skype now & if you want to do some podcasting together I guess I can somehow make it happen? Have some ideas that we could discuss for you being on a Silber podcast instead of just me invading your world….

    @Shawn: Thx for listening!!!

    @Brian: Video is a great idea. My only problem with video is that I don’t enjoy editing it as much as I enjoy just working with audio. For now, I gonna stick with audio, but I like your suggestion for a special episode or something that calls for wall-to-wall images.

    Yeah, what happened was I was purging my Twitter followings on the @super_haters account, as I’m wont to do once I reach another 100 followers, and by mistake I unfollowed the Silber Comics account. I realized what happened when I was logged in as @audioshocker, so I just followed it from there. And then by the time I was recording this, you’d followed Super Haters and yadda yadda.

    Yeah, we should give podcasting a shot. I’ll shoot you an email. And thx for listening!!!

    i think you did a great job! talking by yourself is pretty daunting, but you handled it really well! i was interested in a lot of the origin stuff for Super Haters, i didn’t know a lot of it. looking forward to your podcast with Justique, and our collab!!
