PATREON PRIORITY Q&A
Seeing as Tails mentioned his adventures on Cocoa Island during the recent Twitter Takeover, now seemed an ideal time to ask a question I’ve been wondering about for awhile. Do you know if Tails Adventure for the Game Gear is considered canon to the games? If so, which version? Apparently the Japanese manual for the game implies it’s a prequel that took place before Sonic and Tails met, that Tails actually lived on the island, and that the Chaos Emeralds had been said to have been hidden there since ancient times. The Western manual however said that it took place in the present day (well, 1995), and that Tails was just taking a vacation by himself. That seems to be the version that you were adapting in the comics, but would that version be canon to the games timeline too? Also, did you ever plan to include T-Pup turning into a submarine in the comics, like he can in the game? Because when I played the game for the first time after reading The Tails Adventure in Sonic Universe, I was rather surprised when that happened.
On Twitter you mentioned that Sonic Spinball was not canon. Was that officially stated by SEGA, or is that an assumption? What other Sonic games are not canon? While I understand we can’t speak for him, Aaron Webber has been known for saying “Everything is canon”, so now I’m curious.
If you didn’t go into comics, what would you have done?
Do you think it will ever be possible to see merchandise based on the IDW Sonic books? i’d love to see figures, T-shirts, and plushes made for it.
I understand you take part in creating show called Sonic Underground. I saw this show a couple of times as a kid. But the fact that it was cancelled and left unresolved leaves me completely heartbroken and it drives me crazy not knowing how it could end. I’m not asking you to restart the series but just to finish off from the first series. Thank you.
Why didn’t you cancel Sonic Underground sooner?
Hey Kyle, do you wish a second Spaceballs happened?
