Ask Ian XXIX - Running as Long as it Can!

Postby Ian Flynn » Sun May 23, 2010 11:54 pm

Right, so, let's have another round of "Ask Ian." I've been waiting for a time when I'm not so busy, but that's never going to happen. Ever. So let's go ahead and get it rolling and we'll keep it running for as long as we can.

We're also going to try for a new format here. I'll be returning to the audio responses since those ended up being much easier to put together. I'll be hosting the MP3s here and uploading them to YouTube for ease of others.

Anyone who would like to volunteer to transcribe the audio logs to .TXT or .DOC files would be appreciated (both by me and those who can't listen for some reason or another).

Now, because of the new format, we're going to go by two rules:

#1 - ONE question per person per answer session. This is in the interest of making it easier for me to keep up and less work for the fine volunteer force.

#2 - I reserve the right to skip your question. That sounds mean and heartless, I know, but sometimes it must be done. There are some question that I just can't answer for whatever reason, so I'll leave them be. Just know it's not personal.

Please note that since this thread is for the questions only, there's a talkback thread for discussion. You may find that the answer to your question is already available, so check it out.

MOD EDIT: Until further notice, anything other than a question in this thread will result in an instant two week ban. No warnings. No grace period.

So...let the questions commence, and let's see how long this will last.

I don't know if you can talk about this, but do you know if Sega has shown any interest in using ArchieSonic characters in the Sonic games?

considering we're finally getting a comic adaptation of Tails Adventure, is there a chance for an adaptation of sorts for other older games like say, SegaSonic Arcade?

Is there any information you can divulge about the Sonic Selects, such as the new release pattern, inclusion of mini-series and Knuckles comics and how they'll be worked in, when we will know more information, etc.?

Ok, umm, can Sally go super? I mean in the same way that Sonic, Knuckles, Tails and Shadow can, because I seem to remember you saying somewhere that not everyone can go super; but seeing as how she's a princess and all with a once mystical connection to the source of all. And also can she go super in the sense that Sega would actually let you to transform a comic exclusive character super?

Personal question,

How does it feel to be the main writer for over 50 issues straight and basically now the only writer?

How do you plan out the scripts?

For all intents and purposes, (as I dont think it would need to be covered in the comic), does Espio have dirt on our dear friend Ray?

Also, im a very bored person during the day, i could probably do some transcription.

I'd be willing to do that. Would make a nice little project especially if you release the audio file over the summer sometime.

If I recall, you said that the arcs post-Iron Domion will be much shorter. We already know of the Wolf Pack arc and the Rotor/Silver arc, but without going into full detail, could you give a hint at how long the series of shorter arcs will last before another large arc arrives?

I'm thinking of asking one, but it'd sound uber fangirly.

I'm new to the forums and haven't had time to read through all of the previous "Ask Ian"s so please just ignore if this has been answered...

Any chance of the return of Robotnik Prime? Be it in the form of a flashback at least? I miss seeing his design...My dream story is of his full fledged return as either a rival or ally-turned-traitor to the current version of Robotnik...maybe give them different personalities......enough fan-rant, there's the question!

I think Ian has said that Robotnik Prime was completely obliterated during that one issue where he came back. Now he just appears in flashbacks (as recently as #206-207, in fact).

Okay, my question is going to sound REALLY stupid....but...does Espio see Knuckles as his BEST friend? Or is there someone else? Yeah, predictably insane coming from me, but I'm just so curious about it.
