What are each of your favourite Sonic racing games?

I just remembered that Chao can talk… So, what happened with that? Sonic X seems to have most Chao just say “Chao,” including Cheese. Is this a retcon on Chao?

What’s Tangle’s house like? Does she live with her parents? Does she ever get grounded for her hyper active antics? What’s she like when she’s not trying to keep up with Sonic and helping save the world from Eggman’s current plot?

If one were to make a Reading Order for IDW Sonic, where would you say the best spot to put the 2020 Annual would be?

I’m a bit confused on what is considered an idea from older media or a new idea. For example, the Sonic video game series introduced the concept of Metal counterparts with Metal Sonic and Metal Knuckles, but the Archie comics introduced Metal Tails and Metal Amy. Does that mean that they could potentially return in the IDW comics, or would they be off limits? I’m assuming special cases like this might allow for them to return with a redesigned look like with E-107 Theta, who returned with a new look. And speaking of Theta, did you pick Theta as a hint to say certain characters from Archie could return if they are redesigned, especially ones who were seemingly previously off limits?

Chris A.
What would mimic role be if Archie sonic wasn’t cancelled?

What measures are taken to prevent inaccurate fan info/translations getting into the Encyclo-speed-ia?

Someone at SEGA manages to get permission to revive some old licensed Sonic material… They come to you and ask, “ok, what are we reviving? How obscure do you want to get? Asking both Ian and Kyle

Ian: Is there anything from the Sonic Rivals series you think would be worth adapting into IDW Sonic in the future?
Kyle: What would be the first thing you’d do if you were a millionaire? This question can apply to Ian as well.

Standard Q&A
Raekwon G.
Did Shadow as the Ultimate Life Form have any resistance to the metal virus?

If IDW started a comic series of shantae or gunvolt would potential crossover with sonic work?

Can Whispers wispon use other wisps besides the ones we’ve seen it use?

Frost The Hobidon White Lion
If you were to give Ray the Flying Squirrel and Lupe the Wolf an Age, what would they be In the Post-SGW of Archie

Twilight Sparkle
did you watch MLP: Friendship is Magic and MLP: Pony Life ? If yes, what are your opinions about those shows? I’m very curious to hear it

I’ve got a really a simple question for you what’s your favorite character besides sonic (if he is yours)and why and how do you see silver and tails as characters??

Sony Nakamura
The metal virus. Can you explain what you thought you wouldn’t get away with and whatnot? Also part 2 to it, how far could you go with it before sega says no. Like could knuckles say a swear or is that abit too far?

Tik Tik
Were any of the villains ever considered to be female at any point in their development?

in the Archie reboot Championship arc, Grounder’s job description concisely states he “does… casino stuff”. Did you ever happen to come up with any other specific things he would have done for the casino (if you can recall them), or did you not have anything specific in mind for him yet and figured he’d just be the odd jobs guy?

Diane W.
What are your overall thoughts on Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and who is your favourite character(s) and why?
