(Internal Monologue) *sound* [Gesture/action.]
So the first idea for how to handle hiatus comics fell through because it was terrible and ill-managed by me, Chris. HOWEVER, Chance, my partner in crime, had the brilliant idea to work these simple mini-comics into the canon, and I discovered that canonizing this stuff dovetails perfectly with a plot thread down the line. It's in fact going to spell a marked improvement. So here's the story.
Iceberg City's bastard child of social media and legitimate journalism has its eye on the virman kids, and the spectators have questions from the banal to the existential. It took a little wrangling to get Japhet to cooperate with the idea of "press coverage," and there's still no guarantee of straight answers, but at least everyone's faces and words will be recorded for posterity.
This hiatus subplot is going to take place a few color-pages in, so we're going non chronologically for a little while, but that's fine. The color pages will catch up in a few months.
How this is going to work moving forward is that if there's a passing week where we get no questions on Patreon, we'll pose on of our own as a citizen of Iceberg. Any questions we do get will be posed by Iceberg citizens or other in-universe parties to the best of our lore-friendly abilities. No more of that non-canon nonsense, all questions get localized and have effects on the characters.
Basically what we expect to happen is the first bunch of questions are going to be mostly us posing as in-universe characters, and down the line as we put more (any) effort into promoting patronage and growing the reader base there will gradually more reader-submitted questions until that's all there is. The context of these interviews is also going to change significantly as the crew accumulates power and their PR approach shifts gears.
Whew, that was a lot. But hey, we're cutting the hiatus somewhat short, I suppose, with a little restructuring of this whole comic's body of work. Live n' learn!
