Said question being, what went into writing Sonic character for the IDW series?
What was the secret, if any, to [Jun Kun’s] incredible strength and toughness?
What is Starlines favorite consumable item? And while we’re on the subject of food, do Zeti eat?

If you could freely write different Sonic properties together how would the universes be recognized in name/identity by the others?
IWhich multiplayer modes from previous Sonic games have been your favourites, and how would you like to see multiplayer brought back in a future Sonic title, if at all?
How do you feel about Netflix’s Fate: The Winx Saga?
If you were each to design your own Pokémon, what would it be, and what would its typing be?

so obviously you’ve talked multiple times at this point about how the Iron Dominion saga featuring Monkey Kahn was a joke idea to make your other pitches seem better that Pellerito ended up choosing anyways. Now back in the old Mike Gallagher Off-Panels, it was a running gag that Pellerito had an obsession with monkeys and apes. I wonder…

Ian, is how Sonic and Tails first met in the IDW continuity the same as mainline? Amy mentioned in #10 how Tails was raised by Sonic. Did Sonic find Tails going hungry as a baby or toddler, or did Tails fix up Sonic’s plane? Can you describe the story of Sonic raising Tails?

One…thing I have seen going around at times that annoys me a little is when people claim that Eggman/Robotnik is a complete idiot, and not a real threat. I mean, in IDW and Forces, he DID manage to take over the world, he has created huge facilities, robot armies, deadly inventions, and he has shown multiple times that he actually is a genius, and had really evil moments. I personally think that the main thing about the character is that his main weaknesses are his own overconfidence in his plans, and his own obsession with Sonic.
But what do you think? How would you sorta “explain” Eggman?
so the sol emeralds can restore peoples’ memories huh? whats the deal with that? also, what do you think the sol emeralds preside over in general? (in the same vein that the chaos emeralds manipulate abstract space and such)
Ian: Prominent female villain in the future of Sonic comics? Maybe? Please?
A question for Ian Flynn: When you are writing a script for a story arc of a comic, do you already know how it’s going to end?
It’s been a while since we heard anything about Sticks and if she’ll ever appear in the current comics or not. So much of us love her and I hope Sega hasn’t scrapped the character completely. If they haven’t, will you ever pitch again?
[Following on from Jewel’s love of wings:] doesn’t Sonic eat chillidogs? what is the meat of those made of?
Ian i have one question the Freedom fighters are Classic Sonic timeline exclusive? the only game they show up is sonic spinball and the tv show sonic satan and the two use classic sonic design

I just wanted to ask a question regarding characters who are labelled as off-limits. Does them being off-limits in the comics prohibit them from being in any other form of media (such as mobile games like Speed Battle) and merchandise?
