For Ian (Kyle can answer, too. I like when Kyle gives his thoughts): How does someone get into writing comics books as a profession? How did you decide that you wanted to use your skills as a writer to earn a living? I know a lot of folks out there who are interested in getting into comics to do the visual aspect, pencils, inking, coloring, etc, but not quite as many folks seem interested in the writing aspect. For you, was it more of a formal process, submitting applications/auditions, going thru the ol’ interview process, or was is it more of a “you have to know someone on the inside” kind of deal? Just curious how all that works. No particular reason why.

I was catching up on old bumblekasts from the span of time I fell behind on them and nearly a year ago you said
There’s something that we’re working on for 2020 in IDW Sonic where a core component was received well but was deemed inappropriate for the franchise, and I don’t mean that in an adult way, I mean that it was “out of theme”. (…) So I had to reconfigure things and it lead to some interesting new directions for one of the characters involved
Since we’re in 2021 now, is it safe for you to go into more detail about this?

How did Buns contract NIDS? Was it her affair with Scourge that caused this to happen, or do you think it’s too much to address given that this is an All-Ages comic?

Hey guys, sorry to bother you at work. I’m curious, we’ve seen the Master Emerald shattered a few times. I assume that means the Chaos Emeralds can be similarly broken. My question is this. Can the Chaos Emeralds be destroyed completely? What would happen if they were?

The Sonic fandom LOVES to talk about the Sonic Ships. Some likes this ship, hates that ship, shipping, ship, shipping. So what’s your favorite Sonic Ship? …my personal favorites includes the Egg Carrier.

Does the split between Classic and Modern Sonic separate just the video game cast, or does it affect characters made for other media too?

Hey fellas! What is the one place you want to travel to most, when it’s finally safe to do so again?

In honor of the great cinema masterpiece that was Godzilla vs Kong, who would win: Vector or Sargent Simian?

Like when you talked before at length about Under The Red Hood, how do you feel about the recent interactive adaption of #Batman​ Death in the Family?

In IDW Sonic issue 36, Amy said that If she knew she was going to fight a Snowy, she would have worn her good boots. Is it different from her regular boots? Maybe they have cleats?

In recent years I’ve noticed a lot of spotlight has been given to The Deadly Six in a lot of your stories recently… So I gotta ask, what’s the obsession? Do you think they’re just fun to write, or do you see untapped potential in them you’d like to explore?

…How would you go about fitting [Dynamite Dux] into the Sonic Universe you e been molding the past so and so years you’ve been doing the comics?

The mandates involving themes such as Shadow’s personality, the relationships between characters (Team Dark), Team Dark working for G.U.N. and the Super Forms would not be something exclusive only to the IDW Comics? Or does it also affect the games?

are the Shadow Androids in Whisper’s backstory based on the Yellow or Orange Androids from the Shadow the Hedgehog multiplayer…?

If Blaze’s present(world) has a less advanced tecnology, wouldn’t she be surprised everytime she find something like that in sonic’s world?

I was wondering if you would love to do a comic…spoiling Charmy bees hair …
