Want to ask us a question? Ask at:

you’ve said before the new 252 setting isn’t the same as the genesis world from the first time the genesis wave was used. my question is, why?

If you could adopt any badnik from the entire Sonic series, which would it be? Quantity is unlimited, but it can only be one of each type.

Was there any particular reason you seemed to imagine planet Mobius as having a population of a couple hundred thousand people tops, or did it just work out this way?

During the archie Preboot run, after Eggman brought himself back from his insanity, there were times when he’d fail and slip back into madness for a few seconds, this being depicted by his glasses falling away to show his red soulless eyes….so what I’m asking is was this detail something to pay attention to and that you intended to pay off? Or was it simply a characterization choice to show that Eggman was still not fully there?

-why the Black Arms decided to wait until now to invade Earth when the Glyphic Canyon was transported there over 2,000 years ago
-why the Black Arms want to eat humans for their fuel
-why didn’t Sonic and co. just tell Shadow who he is or why couldn’t Shadow just ask anyone who knows him

Starline’s fanboy
Starline mentioned that he became quite ill after not sleeping when he was looking for Eggman…Does it mean he’s still ill? What kind of illness does he have and will it be explored in the future? Or he recovered from it already?

Ideria (Ko-Fi)
Now I’ve heard that you are familiar with my favourite shows : Wakfu.
Who has been your favorite villain between Nox, Qilby and Oropo?

Have you ever written a comic that had no dialogue? If you have, how difficult was it to do? If you haven’t, how difficult do you THINK it would be to do?

Scurvy Piratehog (KoFi)
What are the chances that Captain Whisker can appear in the IDW comics?

KaoticKanine (KoFi)
Ian, if you were finally allowed to use Sticks for IDW, how would you integrate her into the cast?

Andrew D.
What are some series (game, movie, tv, book, etc) that you would love to get into or check out but don’t have the time?

Blue Mickey Mouse
Ian Flynn, you’ve told people they ought not read your Sonic fan fiction from before you became an official writer because it was of bad quality. When you look back upon Other-M does your mind devolve into hearing Samus say “the baby” as that famous .gif of Sonic Underground plays in your mind? https://images.app.goo.gl/8JNV9ZSqdo8…​

This came to mind while reading the Bad Guys book: How are power cores made? Are they “easy” for Eggman to make and power robots with, or difficult?

Melvin (Ko-Fi)
Please geek out about anything cool about Megaman for a few minutes.

Can the Sonic cast breathe in space? Is there an official answer?

If Sonic Boom and Miraculous ladybug had a crossover how would characters interact and is Shadow to powerful to be akumatized?

Tik Tik
How the franchise would be different had Sonic received a sister who is a medieval fantasy bounty hunter hanging out with dwarves and elves and stuff?

Without divulging future or potential plans, what interesting or havent been done before character pairings would you like to see together in their own arc or spinoff?

Where does Omega live?

Mystery Flavor
Will the Tails doll ever make a appearance in IDW ? Will he be a robot or a possessed doll?

Mike B
If someone were to accidentally send in a fan idea/theory in the middle of a Bumblekast question and you read it, would you not be able to use it regardless of how broad it could be?

Chi H.
Do you think the people of Sonic’s world openly accepted Shadow when he first arrived there? Or do you think they were afraid of him?

What would you consider the state of technological development on Blaze’s world to be?

What is it with Sonic fans “shipping” everything? They’re not helping the negative rumors lol. Just let Tangle and Whisper be friends.
