Want to ask us a question? Ask at:

Fans tend to interpret the Diamond Cutters, their mother base in an oil rig structure, their tactical espionage action life etc, as a reference to a certain game series directed by a japanese gentleman who’s friends with Guillermo Del Toro. My question is, assuming this is intentional, was Sega aware, or did you sneak it by? But hold on, it’s not over yet- if it was intentional, was it ALWAYS intentional, or did the idea just come after you saw people react to Whisper by pointing out she’s a sniper wolf? Did you put your will to paper or allow yourself to let the memes come to life?

Is it possible for non-echidna characters to be possessed by Enerjak? Could conditions to “become Enerjak” be met by characters with Chaos Powers such as Shadow or Mogul?

You wrote Mega Man. Did you ever really play? If so, what was your favorite game? Which boss do you remember giving you the hardest time? I hope this counts as one question.

To Ian, I love the episode of Sonic Boom that you wrote, Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Worse-er. Its so cute! How did the plot for Sonic & Tails brotherly competition come to be? Were you given this story to write a script for, or did you come up with this story yourself?

Andrew D.
Did you have any plans for Mr. X after the Mega Man 6 adaptation? In the final issue, we see in a one page summary of the events of Mega Man 6 what seems to be Mr. X getting thrown into a portal.

Rachel W.
My question for you is, how do you get into/find a characters voice when you write dialogue? Are there any techniques you would recommend for this process?

Diane W.
What kind of plans would you have for Locke if SEGA didn’t order you to kill him off?

If the Archie Mega Man series had continued, how would you have written Mega Man nearly killing Wily in MM7?

Peppy girl energies collide! if Tangle and Marine met, who would be the first to tire out?

I was wondering if you checked out any of the new trailers and stuff that came out of DC Fandome, and if so, what got you the most hyped?
