Chris A.
Is there any chance that the Archie Sonic characters might show up in idw sonic?

In a alternative universe how would you re-write the endgame arc in Pre-reboot Archie Sonic

Sony N.
I’m currently making my own comics and finally finished issue one’s pencils. I’m mostly an artist but I write my own stories. When I write my scripts I tend to do a paragraph a page. Or a paragraph = one page. How do you do it? Do you do it panel by panel, page by page? I know it’ll be different since you’re writing to the artist.. but what tips do you have for when the writer is the artist. Basically I’m a one man show trying to make it and making progress.. but slow progress.

With the metal virus and zombotification, when someone’s effectively zombotified do they retain any level of awareness (such as how satAM handled roboticization as kind of ‘I have no mouth and I must scream’ situation), or is it more like they’re basically brain-dead and unaware until cured?

If Sonic had been fully zombot-ified, how would he behave? Would he basically be another addition to the slow-moving, shambling masses of zombots, would he be a high-risk super-speed kinda’ zombot or would he retain his sense of self like he did during the werehog transformation?

Hero of Light 13
Isn’t it reasonable to assume that [Sonic] still has a house of his own that he occasionally scurries back to between adventures?

Hero of Light 13
My question is can’t Sonic CD fit comfortably between Sonic 2 and 3?

What does Whisper keep in those little pods under her jacket? Are they some kind of explosives, or do they contain her Wisps? If the later, does that mean Wisps can be caught like pokemon?

Scurvy Piratehog (KoFi)
How would you re-imagine the Sonic cast as pirates? feel free to include IDW Characters.

Which is your favourite eeveelution and why?

How many geese does it take to change a lightbulb?

SonAmy Channel
Why are some people trying to prove that the so-called SEGA mandates exist when it was stated that they don’t?

SonAmy Channel
Will Amy ever get to summon & use her bigger hammer that’s game canon in IDW Sonic?

Hey guys. If you had to put the Ghostbusters into the Sonic world, which species would each one be?

Has [panel size & pacing] ever been something you considered…? Kyle & Ian – I assume you’ve already watched Godzilla vs. Kong. Thoughts on it?

Andrew D.
Have you gotten any notes on all the robot doppelgängers?

Tik Tik
What challenges do you feel come out of the fandom’s obsession with wanting to slot everything in together when SEGA doesn’t seem to care about making a continuous story and is more interested in self-contained narratives? Do you think it’s a hindrance to the franchise that fans expect more than what the series seems to want to be?

Rodimus Prime
Ian, when you were writing the 25/ 30 years later Story arc did you consider redesigning Sonya and Manic? Were the original designs kept just to indicate that they were OK after being erased from reality …?

Colin B.
To Ian, how do you think Knuckles would handle himself and his life if the master emerald and Angel island were both irreparably destroyed?

A Chilly Dog
In the rebooted Archie Sonic series, you mentioned the main cast having some brief memories of their old lives. Did that extend to any of the minor characters? Coincidentally, why did you switch Muttski from a dog to a dog-person-man-mobian (?)

What would you say is the hardest part of doing a podcast? Especially one that’s as entertaining and engaging as this one?
