If the freedom fighters were in Drogune, what races would they be? (Throw in the main games cast and Tangle/Whisper/Jewel if you want to)

Pan Dulce
In the Valentines topic, we all imagine how the heroes would spend it, but what about the villains such as Dr. Eggman, Dr. Starline, Rough & Tumble, Clutch, etc? What evil plans do they have for it?

Roses are red, rhyming is hard, how do you make a Zeti your Valentine?

Happy Hallmark greeting card day, everyone!
How do you think Amy Rose spends Valentine’s Day, and does it involve a certain homemade Sonic doll that she keeps around for totally legitimate, definitely non-creepy reasons?

If Sega, IDW and Wizards of the Coast decided to make a Sonic themed D&D supplement based on your work so far, what character would you make for yourself? Would there be new classes to fit the world? Would you have enough dice? Kyle! Pay attention, you can answer too.

Hey guys! Was replaying the Megaman Zero/ZX collection recently so I’ve got a Megaman focused question for Ian. Both Megaman Zero and Shadow the Hedgehog have very similar character arcs where they are forced to confront difficult past but of the two I find Zeros to be more emotionally satisfying. Ian, what is your take on Zero’s overall character arc and (if you can) elaborate on what ways you would flesh it out/improve on existing material?

Scurvy Piratehog
I have noticed a LOT of people mistaking Dr Starline for a duck, despite the fact he’s a platypus. That makes me wonder…how would Starline react if ALL the other Sonic characters within the book ALSO constantly mistook him for a duck? What would he do?

Diane W.
To Ian, what would the Sonic characters’ blood type be?

Drogune! Your own wholy original story, not related to any pre existing intellectual property. What inspired you to write it? And how much “story” do you already have planned out? When I write something, I usually have the ending planned out ahead of time. Do you look at a story the same way, or do you just write until the writing is done and figure it out along the way?

Have you ever written anything using the classic Stan Lee “Marvel Method” of doing a basic story breakdown, letting the artist determine the pages and layouts and acting following the basic breakdown you did, and then writing the dialogue yourself? If not, is that a process that would interest you, if done in the ideal circumstances (with an artist you know and are used to collaborating to, etc)?

Hi Ian, If an artist wants to try getting into the comics industry as a freelancer, what is the usual process for getting their art to the right people?

Sgt Byrd
What pairings do you think Sega should use in the future? Are there any pairings we’ve seen a lot of already that you’d like to see a different take on?

Did cream Rouge and Amy Rose marry in Mobius 30 years later comics if so who are the characters?

Bucellarian Theme
[…]a couple of characters have been seen to be, rather taken, with the good doctor: Egg Boss Thunderbolt and Wendy Witchcart…Was this intentional from the outset or was it something you picked up on from the fans?

Liam B.
Do you feel Sonic was irresponsible for not making it clear to Sally that he missed her, and kept her waiting too long (hence why she gave her admirer, Ken, a try)?

How do you imagine Tangle and Whisper first date playing out?

Tik Tik
To the best of your interpretation, what does the line “Sphynx looked so cute, I had to shave it” from “My Sweet Passion” mean?
