To pre-emptively answer the question ahead of time: yes, the robots eat! The real question is, does Unit 01 build any of them with nut allergies?
If you've got any other questions for me, though -- about the comic, comics in general, or the world beyond -- just fire 'em my way in an email with Q and A in the subject line! I'll be answering my next batch of questions this Friday.
In other news, I drew a new bonus pin-up comic-y type thing based on the suggestions and votes of my Patreon backers, staring long-absent cast members Andrea and Alexa. It's a little cheeseball, but I think it turned out kinda cute! Pin-Ups are one of the three types of backer-suggested pieces I draw over there, along with fan art and goofy Sam and Fuzzy dress-up/mash-up pieces. It's my way of saying thanks to my backers, and also giving myself a regular excuse to draw bonus stuff.
Come back on Friday for more comics and a new round of Q and A!
