Only one comment on the latest strip.
We've seen these found documents before, of course: Things like individual entries in the Enciclopedia Xenobiologica, or internal corporate memos, or private letters held in La Familia's vaults. And as the story unfolds on, it's undoubtedly something we'll see again.
(Speaking of the full story: We're putting the finishing touches on the new DRIVE site, but in the interim, you can always read the story -- in order -- over at the temporary site.)
Well, I thought it was an excellent method of filling in backstory (although I didn't realise where the idea came from). Admittedly, when the documents comprises the entire strip for that week, it can be disappointing that the plot hasn't moved on, but I certainly think they're an essential part of making this a full story.
Is the podcast still planned, or are a number of documents going to be used to fill in all the gaps?
I would also like to say that I like the found documents as well. For one, this document answers the question, "Were there any black sheep in the Cruz family?"
All the found documents help flesh out the whole backstory to the world you've created and really give it depth. I hope you do a few more throughout.
One question: The Drive book contains a page of transmissions from Orla O'Malley to the Emperor and various other places in the Empire. That doesn't appear on the site at all. Is that a "book exclusive?" Are there going to be more book exclusives, or was the page an oversight that will be posted to the new Drive site once complete?
If that was a book exclusive, will there be more?
