Hey guys, wasn’t that last question awesome? Anyway, Ian: Bucky O’Hare SWAT Kats Gargoyles If you could choose to write an at least 24 issue comic on any of these franchises, which would you choose? Which would you be most excited for?

Hello! I absolutely loved the Metal Virus saga and Cream’s portrayal especially. I felt it demonstrated a side of Cream we hadn’t seen before. Do you currently have any plans for Cream the Rabbit in the next IDW arc? She is my favorite character, thanks!

…The Metal Virus Saga ends the way it began….Was this intentional? If so, that’s kinda brilliant!

was volume 1 of Cosmo originally going to be a full blown ongoing that got caught up in Archie transitioning to having it’s non-Archie (the character) books into miniseries?…I guess you could extend this question to the Mighty Crusaders book from around the same time

I was curious, in the forces comic and the game, we never got to see how Shadow took down Infinite’s squad as well as his reason.Were you ever planning to include that in the comic? And if not, how do you imagine it happened.

Most Webtoons comics are formatted vertically for mobile… I was curious if [formatting Dorgune differently] was something that had crossed your minds.

Do you still think there should be a Sonic game, with Smith voicing Sonic, where he’s put into a situation where the metaphorical anvil gets dropped on how he’s characterized in the 2010s era, how he treats his friends, or how he tells his jokes, very poorly, or even the other characters and how they’ve acted since the 2010s such as Tails, or Shadow?

Let’s rewind back to the first episode of Sonic X. If you could put Sonic & co in any city in fiction at all as a result of chaos control gone wonky, which city would you pick?

Having worked on the Transformers x MLP crossover, I have to ask, who’s your favorite Transformer? Also, bonus question for both you and Kyle, if you were a Transformer, what would your alternate mode be?

What do you guys think are some of the best video games trilogies that are out there?

Does Sonic canonically see the world through a cartoony lens? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BY_H4d68IUc that last couple lines from this progressive commercial just seems like a bit of a tidbit that SEGA believes to be true but doesn’t tell the fans

Cassidy J.
Hey Ian, about Wave the swallow, I’ve been wondering if she’s actually wearing some sort of tube top/bra/bikini top, or is it just feathers that looks like a top like that.

Vlad C.
In IDW #32, Blaze uses [Sol Emeralds] to cure Sonic’s amnesia, restoring his memories. What is the extent of this memory power? Can the Sol Emeralds bring back memories from Sonic 06, tying into the theories that Blaze remembers 06? Are the Chaos Emeralds capable of the same or similar feats in regards to memory restoration?

If you had live in an Adventure/Modern era city/country, which ones would it be?

Are there French versions [of IDW Sonic] or will I have to translate 100% myself?

I’m not sure I understand the outcome of the Penders v SEGA lawsuit that was made while Sonic was still being published by Archie Comics. Does the list of mandates (no excessive emotion, Sonic isn’t allowed to ‘fail’ etc) still apply in full to IDW Sonic publications?

I have a question but i don’t know if it was answered before by sega, is shadow immortal?

will there ever be LGBTQ+ characters in sonic idw?

Nicholas P.
Going off of a certain line in Shadow the Hedgehog, is it actually considered in-character for Shadow to steal candy from babies?
