Somebody (KoFi)
Hi Ian, I got caught up on IDW Sonic and I enjoy what you’re doing with the Deadly Six and think they have a neat roll as villains in the series and want to know what your mindset was when writing them. As now they have some kind of depth to them now thanks to you.

Hey fellas, hope you’re both having an excellent day!
So how about that Sonic Symphony? It made my heart so happy! What were the highlights for each of you? Was there any music you were hoping for that was overlooked?

Happytimes (KoFi)
So nice to finally see Mighty, Ray, and the Hooligans again! Writing for the characters of the classic series, did you learn anything about how Sega wants to portray them that differs from their Archie selves, like how Fang uses his original name instead of Nack?

The statue breaking part [of time-frozen victims], does that instantly, fully kill them, or is their mind still stuck in the void with the knowledge if time was returned, they’d instantly die?

Andrew D.
What happened to the Shadow Androids after they killed those Diamond Cutters members?

Can you just talk generally about your experiences writing the 30th Anniversary Special? Any fun behind the scenes facts?

So, now that Sonic Revo has come and gone, what did you think about it?

Feed (KoFi)
If you were given complete creative freedom to crossover Sonic with the Rabbids what would you do. Don’t be afraid to go crazy.

Scurvy Piratehog (KoFi)
In issue 41 of IDW Sonic. Out of curiosity..How many people die? …
And Speaking of the Zeti…It seems like all they want to do is just “Destroy” things…is that the difference between Zavok and Eggman?

Dose tails even own anything in his workshop since no political system means no legal system or can someone just go and take it ….how can police exist without a political system. If there is a village chief in windmill village how dose that work if there is no political system involved …How do city’s in sonics world function without a political system

Fionan M.
Dose saga still consider it to be two planets in two sperate dimensions Or just two planets in one dimension. Since giant rings are used to enter the special stages dose that mean the characters travel in the special stages to get to the two worlds or is it like that giant ring in sonic 3 and knuckles witch transported sonic straight to the master emerald shrine. And how do the chaos emeralds travel between the two worlds

Hero of Light 13
If you were given the chance to write a Legend of Zelda comic series, how would you handle it?

Diane W.
What kind of pizza toppings would each Sonic character have on their pizza?

Speed Weed
For Ian: …which [Metroid bounty hunter] would you like to see fleshed out the most…?
For Kyle: …what [Metroid OST] would you like to see potentially remastered,
And for both: What’s your favorite suit?

Lucas R.
Does sonic have a resistance to having his speed stolen?

Hypothetically, could Mephiles be infected with the Metal Virus in his crystal form?

Tony C.
Do you have a headcanon of sorts of what backstory the [Sonic Boom] characters may had?

My question is: Is [T-Pup] off-limits?

Daniel H.
My question is by the time that you guys reach MM7 would Light’s original 8 robot master all have been decommissioned since Gutsman in the museum in MM7? Also are Megaman, Roll and Quake Woman excluded from the decommission process due to them being considered their creators children?

P. L-Martin
I’ve been curious if there were any Technomages other than the Iron Queen left on Mobius Prime.
