Has SEGA ever told you what games were or were not canon? And for those that were non canon, did they say they could not be adapted at all due to being non canon?
Since we never got to fully see it in World’s unite…how would you imagine a proper crossover between modern Sonic and Sonic Boom to go? The Sonics interacting, Knuckles, Eggmen, ETC ETC ETC.
How do you both feel about the hyper critical approach to media analysis we seem to find ourselves in nowadays? I often find I enjoy things more when I consider the time, circumstances, and people behind a project rather than treating everything in a vacuum. Do you think it creates healthy discourse for everything to be treated to such a strict and harsh standard of quality?
Chronologically, when does Outlaw take place in relation to the main Drogune series? Given that the shonen jump contest chapter took place at Ruby Point and then the chapter of the main book that came out after Outlaw when the hiatus ended also took place at Ruby Point, it would be funny if what we have of Outlaw and that chapter of the main series was taking place at the same time unbeknownst to both parties, but obviously if that’s not the case then that’s not the case.
Could you shed some light on the relationship between Rob O’ the Hedge and the Albion echidnas? Rob appeared to be in a weird trance when he led Knuckles and the lost echidnas to the hidden city he never saw before, and then they were in some sort of alliance with the Albionites until their civilization was blown up by Eggman? What was up with that?
What are the possibilities of exploring Blaze having Iblis sealed inside of her before she Chaos Controlled herself into another dimension at the end of Silver’s campaign in Sonic ‘06, as well as the fact that Blaze was originally from Sonic’s world 200 years into the future and childhood friends with Silver before she was the princess of the Sol Dimension and keeper of the Sol Emeralds?
Thoughts from either of you on Daft Punk in general, now they’ve split up?
Were the characters of Pre-reboot Archie Sonic.. erased from existence by the Genesis wave or they were reincarnated into the new continuity ..?
Hero of Light 13
As far as the IDW Sonic universe goes, what’s the Avatar character up to while everything else is going?
I was replaying Sonic Adventure 2, and a question struck me. When a chao reincarnates, do they keep their memories, or not? Do you have to remind them of their last life if they up and cocoon on you?
My question is for Ian: when you write for Classic Sonic, what voice do you hear in your head? Jaleel White from the DiC shows? Martin Burke from the OVA?
With Sonic set to get a new voice actor, who would you personally like to see fill the role?
Alright fellas, who would win in a fight? Darth Vader or the Hulk?
In a recent issue of the comic, Amy Rose was seen driving a car. She’s supposedly only twelve years old. This isn’t a question, I just wanted to point that out.
What are your opinions on Heavy and Bomb, and how would you give them unique personalities and stories with potential in the current age where we have many other robots on the side of good?
At the end of Sonic Universe #70 did Eclipse and the Dark Arms land on Mystic Ruins?
What would you do with Axl when you got to the Mega Man X7 adaptation? Would you do anything to make him less annoying, or would you keep him relatively the same, just to stay true to his character development in Mega Man X8?
Do you remember Hawaiian Shadow from that fake Sonic Boom leak, back in late 2013/early 2014?
Since Sonic isn’t allowed to cry anymore, does that mean there is demon sealed inside of him too?
Is the Human world off limits in IDW, or could we see it in future issues?
