Andrew D.
In issue 14, Silver holds Metal Sonic in place with his psychokinesis, so how is it that Metal Sonic falls through the warp hole that Dr. Starline opens beneath him if he’s being held? The only thing I can think of is that Silver’s psychokinetic hold acted more like pushing Metal Sonic downward, but that wouldn’t seem to line up with what we’ve seen of his psychokinesis before.

Chris A.
Do you think hellboy deserves a tv show just like the mask whether it be animated or live action?

Diane W.
If Sonic Boom got a season 3, what would you want from it?

I’d like to know what some of your favourite forgotten Sonic games are, fellas. Also, what was the WORST forgotten Sonic game, and why is it Tails’ Skypatrol? 😛

what are Tangle, Whisper, and Jewel’s respective favorite foods?

How high are the chances of us seeing a Sonic Timeline/Chronology in the encyclo-speed-ia akin to the zelda goddess trilogy of encyclopedia books they also published

I want to know your thoughts if Shadow and Rouge would be a good couple.

Do you think some characteristics, like Silver in TSR Mighty in Mania Adventures and Fang, Bean and Bark being labeled Hooligans, were inspired or even nods to your work over the comics?

SonAmy Channel
Ian, why do Archie Sonic fans refuse to accept that IDW Sonic will never turn into Archie Sonic, especially since S.O.J. and Sonic Team made it very clear for 27 years that they don’t want Sally & Freedom Fighters & won’t make them canon to their video games or in movie Sonic?

Ian – How it feels to chew five gum?

Ian what anime opening could you sing right here right now
Kyle would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or ten duck-sized horses

Standard Q&A
Q: Sega recently confirmed that Chao are gender-neutral and use they/them pronouns, and that got me wondering if Wisps are also genderless. Has there been any official word from Sega on whether this is the case or not?

Are the Zeti more powerful then the Iron Queen in terms of manipulating machines?Would the Zeti have been able to control the New Mobotropolis similar to how Iron Queen controlled it since its made up of nanites? And would the Ironqueen be able to control Zombots?

Because I’ve seen it brought up in my own server, are the birds from Sonic Adventure 1 considered ‘Flickies’?

do you know what marine’s power is supposed to be?

I remember there being some rather unsettling moments in Archie Sonic Post-Reboot… Was the shock value of these events exactly as you intended or do you feel that the artists took a more drastic approach than you intended?

The Archie Sonic Encyclopedia mentioned that King Sebastian Acorn (Sally’s grandpa, I think?) intervened in a Mercia power struggle in favor of the O’Hedge family. Could you elaborate on this or what Mercia was like before Rob’s family took power in further detail?

When Sonic go to space in the IDW comics. It’s sound like it’s very similar to the Archie Sonic comics story.

Would Sonic & Tails, who’ve each absorbed an absurd amount of Chaos Energy during the Pre-Boot Days, live an extended life span by a few extra decades or maybe a century? Or is Chaos Longevity a benefit only for those subscribed at Master Emerald level or higher on Chaos Force Patreon?
