Did you manage to get [a scene with Shadow] in? If not, what would it have been?

Jonathan (KoFi)
Thoughts on the NSFW Sonic community, as a creator? Do you disapprove/mind artists creating NSFW (Aged Up) interpretations of characters you have written?

What do you think is the saddest, most devastating, heartbreaking moment you’ve ever written to date? How about you, Kyle? Does any particular moment stick out to you?

Ink Pants
Serious question time: I was wondering if you could maybe share some of the sentiments or stories that might have been collectively experienced or expressed by the team when you all got word that Archie Sonic was to close up shop?

Andrew D.
When Dr. Starline was looking through the portals that he opened in the beginning of Eggman’s Day Off, the artwork in the portals was lifted from previous issues by the same artist. Would you say those events were happening simultaneously, or was it a simple case of reusing art and them not being the exact same events?

How come when it comes to Sonic characters, species like insects and bats (and even some foxes) can fly, but literal birds can’t?

Alex M.
…since it is rare to see them ever wear something other that their usual stuff, when you decide to change that do you have to ask permission from SEGA to do it, even if just for one issue or something? And, can it only be stuff that they’ve already wore on other official Sonic stuff or are you allowed to come up with your own original outfits?

How were you able to get [Blaze’s Palace] approved and what was the inspiration behind the empire’s look if you had anything to do with it?

What would you And Thomas do IF you win the The competition?

Diane W.
What do you imagine Shadow and Knuckles would be doing, individually, during the events of Sonic Unleashed?

Are you considering the Mystic Ruins forest hub in Sonic Adventure to be part of Angel Island, meaning the start of that Annual story is in Angel Island and that Big lives in Angel Island? Or did Big just like that shack so much he built it twice?

Chris A.
Does bunnie’s uncle Beauregard Rabbot exist in the post reboot of Archie Sonic?

During Worlds Unite, how was Sonic Man able to break out of Flash Man’s “Time Stopper”?

Ian: Outside of writing for the characters in the comics, which Sonic characters do you personally wish to see a lot more done with in the future games?
Kyle: Do you personally see a future for video game retail stores in the next 10 years, or do you feel their time will be up before then in this digital age?

Can I have 1 billion dollars?

So lets say SEGA gave you the go ahead to use the Freedom Fighters and there was absolutely no legal repercussions to deal with and SEGA allowed you the creative freedom to develop them. How would you bring them back and what direction would you give them?

can you take down those videos from YouTube or put legal issues on them?

In the IDW universe of Sonic, does Knuckles ever ask people to look over the master emerald when he’s away from it similar to how he did in the Archie Sonic continuity?

Liam B.
Why was it, or why did you choose for it to be so, that Sonic and Sally’s relationship would be patched up so quickly.?

Is it ok to make fan art for Drogune , like stickers or prints, to sell at artist alleys once they reopen conventions, or at the least, give them out as freebies, as long as there’s a link to the site or QR Code attached?
