Priority Q&A
Question; Sorry to bring up the two worlds again, but if humans live in one world and Sonic and the others live in “Sonic’s World” then (technically speaking and going off of what has been said about it) does that mean Eggman is from the human world?

If Zeti can control anything that has an electrical current running through them, could one of them hypothetically hijack Shadow’s Shoes?

Does this mean that Mobians do consider Mobinis to be a food source?

Jonathan W
Did you have this exact imagery while writing? (RE: STH#29)

Do you think Eggman is Polish considering that his surname “Robotnik” is the polish word for “worker”? What would happen to a Zombot if it got decapitated? What’s your favourite team from Sonic Heroes and why is it Team Sonic?

Hey Ian, what would you personally say some of your biggest mistakes and regrets with regards to writing sonic are?

Silly Rookie (Ko-Fi)
Hiya! What do you feel are the most efficient ways to introduce/reintroduce and develop a character under the page limitations you’re under? Any methods you feel are unique to the comics medium? Any methods you’ve seen (no names) that you dislike?

Scurvypiratehog (Ko-Fi)
Eggman will have kids so…who the heck is the mother? Elise? Wendy Naugus? Someone REALLY desperate?? WHO!??

If the Freedom Fighters are able to appear in the new comics, who would NOT show up?

Starline’s Fanboy
How old is Starline? I know he must be an adult, but what’s his age?

SonAmy Channel (Ko-Fi)
IWill [the new Hot Topic merch] canonically affect Sonic’s & Amy’s interactions with each other in future issues of IDW Sonic?

Ian and Kyle both. Imagine you’re asked what your favourite comic books you’ve ever read…just say what books come to mind. Some 5 per each of you? Maybe more if you can think of more?

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?

To Ian: Since IDW’s newest character, Belle is Evan Stanley’s idea, did you have any sort of small creative involvement with the creation of the character, or is it all Evan?
To Kyle: What are your personal thoughts on the recently released PS5 and new Xbox consoles?

Standard Q&A
So I guess my question is, do you consider the chao an animal species in Sonic’s world, or do you think that the chao are at least semi-intelligent? And if you think they have some sort of free will, is it “wrong” to own them as pets or compete them in races/fights?

Hello Ian! I’ve been wanting to thank you for all those great moments with Cream throughout the Metal Virus Saga…Was it to compensate for her absences in those two games and other recent media?

Big Sonic Fan Patrick
Would you say that Tangle & Whisper’s gal pal friendship would make them the Laverne & Shirley of the Sonic Universe? If so would that make Rough & Tumble essentially badguy versions of Lenny & Squiggy to the Sonic Universe?

Cassidy J.
What kind of creature is Null from Sonic Universe #96? Or is Null actually the kind of alien he/she/it is?

Eduardo Q.
In Curse of the Pyramid, we see Eggman’s pyramid being occupied by “mobian” and using an Egg Golem to protect it. If it’s the same pyramid from Sonic Adventure 2, how did it end up in Sonic’s World?

Colin B.
Ian how would you go about writing an arc based on a “Sonic Civil War”? Which hero joins which team? What incident could possibly turn such good friends against each other?
