Scurvy Piratehog (KoFi)
When they had the license, Archie Comics published comics based on the Sonic TV Shows, like Sonic X and Sonic Boom. And considering that IDW has published comics based on the different TMNT shows…what are the chances we could possibly see a “Sonic Prime” Comic series from IDW?

Ian, are you always surprised when a Sonic ship either gets a spike in popularity or becomes popular due to how you write the two interacting, or have you gotten to a point to expect it? I recall you mentioning being surprised by how popular Tangle x Whisper got, but were you also surprised by similar instances such as Knuxamy due to the Shattered Arc, Tails x Honey from the Champions arc, and Shadaze due to Sonic Universe #1 and the Treasure Team Tango arc?

Ian, you said that Jeff Smith’s Bone was a big inspiration/reference for you. Bone is genuinely one of if not my favorite published works and I’d love to hear you two just talk about it. Do you have any experience with it Kyle? Do you have a favorite volume? (Great Cow Race is Near perfect in my eyes). As beloved as it is, I don’t hear a ton of talk about Bone and I’d like to hear your perspective (And what are your thoughts on quiche?)

Diane W.
Would Shadow listen to modern rock…?

You [have[ the ability to turn any one video game franchise of your choosing into a comic, movie, or television series. Which game do you choose?

SonAmy Channel (KoFi)
Why is it that Amy can’t do spin dashes like Cream & the others?

What’s it like being assistant editor on Tales of Aether?

Andrew D.
Let’s pretend you were given the ok to write a crossover between IDW Sonic and Archie Sonic. How would you handle this?

Speed Weed
How much of a horror story would you get out of the SA-X being thrown into Sonic’s world, given what the SA-X represents in Metroid: Fusion?

Why do some people (including ourselfs) care very deeply to have their innermost (or profoundly public) ideas about the blue blur… put out for mass media consumption?

What would you create if you had all the Badnik parts at your disposal?

Pan Dulce (KoFi)
What kind of streams did Eggman do? And which ones were Starline’s favorites or the ones he enjoyed the most?

Hero of Light 13
What would happen if the Chaotix Detective Agency found themselves on a case where they had to collaborate with a certain Freelance Police duo?

What racing courses can we expect to see in “Ian and Kyle’s big speedy racing game of speedy racing”?

Cassidy J.
Can [Mimic] breathe underwater along with air (aka aquatic respiration) since he’s an octopus?

Lethargic Place
Is that the difference between the characters now in sega’s eyes? Shadow’s the only one actively seeking any action or change and no one else seems to really care?

P. L-Martin
I was curious if the Communication Outpost from Archie Sonic #189… was a major part of a giant communication system that doubled as signal jamming stations..

Tony C.
Who created Captain Whiskers?

A few years ago you said that you would be down to write a Mario and Sonic crossover comic. How would that work?

Gavin F.
Where does [Shadow] live? Is he still a gun agent?

Frozen Klondike
Was it mandated by Sega to not allow Knuckles to use chaos powers like he used to in the Archie comics?

Were there plot points [in the Tangle & Whisper mini] that didn’t make the cut?

Lucas R.
If sonic is killed in the past, is his present and future self affected?

Tik Tik
Any good stories about SEGA being reminded of something that is canon that they just forgot?

if the name “Bumblekast” was for some strange reason not able to be used… what alternative brand name would Ian and or Kyle use?
