Big Sonic Fan Patrick
Many fans have been wondering why does Mr. Flynn continue to compare Sonic X Season 3 to the IDW Comics darkest saga?

Are any components of the Tangle & Whisper miniseries, especially Mimic and Whisper’s trauma, influenced by any depressing real-life moments? Is Starline also influenced by such depressing moments?

Ian, have you received word on government and/or geopolitics in Sonic’s World? Are they just one big society or are there separate countries? If they are one big society, do they have a president like from Sonic OVA or a king?
