In the story, “Eggman’s Day Off”, from Sonic Annual 2020, Dr. Starline is looking at events happening through portals from the Warp Topaz. Were these events happening simultaneously? Also, those events took place after Dr. Starline had already started to have doubts about working for Dr. Eggman, yet in this story he still seems to be a big fanboy. Would you say this story takes place before the events seen in the portals and ignore the contents of what was seen, or would you say this takes place after those events seen in the portals and ignore Dr. Starline’s unwavering admiration of Dr. Eggman? Or perhaps you might have a different solution altogether?

Since Webtoon series like tower of god and god of high school managed to have anime adaptations with the help of Crunchyroll, how would you feel If webtoon come to you and talk about Drogune getting animated series?
I know by the time I’m Writing this question there isn’t that much material to adapt, but! would you gave the staff The outline of the story you planned or allowed to staff to do their own thing with the material and how much creative input would you do?

I know that Sonic is “the fastest thing alive”. And Shadow seems to be about on par with Sonic’s speed consistently. But I’ve noticed that his shoes have these sort of “boosters” on the soles whenever he runs. So my question to you is, is Shadow as fast as Sonic because of the aid of his special shoes? Or is Shadow naturally as fast as Sonic and his shoes’ functions are for a different purpose?

A hypothetical question for you this week: if the Sonic cast decided to have a go at playing Dungeons and Dragons (or any other kind of tabletop RPG), what race and class do you think each of them would play? Would Tails be the dungeon master, or do you think someone else would better fit that role?
On a semi-related note, I’m curious as to whether Bumblekwest is still happening at some point in the future? I’m assuming it’s on the back burner while Ian’s voice still isn’t 100%?

I know Ian has said before that he doesn’t indulge in Sonic related fan content because, as writer for the official comic he worries it might affect his creativity, worried people might say he plucked ideas from their stuff, etc, but with him and Evan sharing the mantle, will that free up any of that concern, where he might start reading some of the fan comics or other material?

Ian, my oldest friend whom I’ve known since childhood. If someone were to hypothetically draw you a picture of a Sonic character, hypothetically, who might that character be? I’m sure this will never ever happen, this is just a hypothetical, you understand. Please speak directly into the microphone, the men in the suits need to be able to hear you.

One of the SEGA mandates is that Sonic can’t cry in the IDW Comics, but does that also apply to crying from laughing during a funny scene?

Is G.U.N still around and is Team Dark still affiliated with them? Again I’m curious, cause I kinda liked that aspect and the fact that G.U.N has been one of the more competent organizations I’ve seen within fiction, given that they actually do stuff and are helpful in certain situations. Plus Commander Tower’s relationship with Shadow, Rouge and Omega were interesting.

Favorite freedom fighter and why is it Bunnie? (if it isn’t Bunnie could you talk about Bunnie anyway?) 🙂
