Priority Q&A
In Issue 3 of the IDW comics, Knuckles and Sonic rescue a town that Rough and Tumble had taken over. They are first greeted by a dog who had his Drill Wispon stolen. (Just in case, here are some pics of him: https://imgur.com/a/Jj4lhLu) He reminds me a lot of Ben Muttski. Was Muttski an inspiration for this character, and also, what is his name?

Have you read any jojo’s bizarre adventure manga because if so who is your favorite jojo in the series?

I had a bit of a curiosity about Zavok’s cell accommodations. He seems the type that could quite easily just break the iron bars before going on a tear through of the prison before leaving. Is there a reason for this? Like, do the Hover Guns prevent runaways by getting them suspended in air, or is there a set of tranquillizer darts that they couldn’t gather together for the guy fast enough? Why didn’t he break the bars, I guess, is what I’m asking.

Do Mobians consider the term “furry” to be a sort of slur? And if Mobians had their own colloquial term for humans, what would it be?

[…]Who is the best Sonic sibling, and why is it Tails?

The Shadow Emperor (Ko-Fi)
During the first issue of Endangered Species (StH #243), it’s revealed that some members of the Lost Tribe are still alive in Albion. Was the decision to have some survivors influenced by fan reaction to the tribe getting killed off after achieving their goal of reaching Albion?

Ian, do you believe there’s still a chance that SEGA or Sonic Team will allow you or Evan Stanley to use Sticks the Badger in IDW Sonic? If not, can you tell us what your plans were in how you were going to establish Sticks as Amy’s best female friend and her role in IDW Sonic?

Amy Rose (Ko-Fi)
I am aware SEGA has requested a distinction between “classic” and “modern” Sonic. My question is: does Honey the Cat count as a “classic” character? (Not asking if she will appear in the comics! I know that’s a secret. Rather, I’m curious if she’s allowed to at all!) Thanks

Tvguru (Ko-Fi)
Awhile ago you said Marine wasn’t allowed to show up in the comic for a specific reason. May we know what it was? Also do you know if Club Rouge can still be a thing?

Hi Ian and Kyle! Long time listener, first time caller. I’ve got a question for Ian: When designing Jewel the Beetle, I remember sega wasn’t entirely keen on another bug character, and that if the beetle design wasn’t approved, you’d just pick another species. So, for a fun hypothetical, what other animals do you think you would have pitched that would’ve still fit your story? Love you guys!

Is it ever explained anywhere why Omega isn’t powered by a small animal, despite the rest of the E-series being so?

If Abyss was offered a job that ended up getting her more money than being an Egg Boss, would she betray Eggman to take that job, even if it was on the heroes side? She seems like a character that would do anything for money.

Hektor S.
Paraphrased for space: Will Team Dark’s dynamics return to the Archie!Sonic way? Which incarnation do you prefer?

I was curious what were the details of that moment you wanted to write about? You mentioned awhile back you had to adjust it some, but the essence of the moment was still there. Is it cool if you share those details with us? And perhaps why you had to if you’re allowed to share. I was always curious of the kind of mandates SEGA has on Shadow.

I remember hearing that you had plans to do a Sonic Lost World adaptation for the Archie Comics. Were there going to be differences/deviations from the game similar to how you did the Sonic Unleashed adaptation, if so what were they?

Paraphrased of space: What is Neo Metal’s canon height, and did that tip off Sonic to his ruse?

Who’s your favourite music composer from the Sonic series?
