What are your credentials? Do you have a Bachelor of Arts/Science/Business/Flatulence/etc., and if so, what did you major in?


I pegged down a BA in English and....after that, Sonic is my credentials. Mike took a gamble on me, regardless of my year behind the scenes. It's something I'm very thankful for and gives me all the more impetus to put out a really great book.

Was it your decision or the artist's to endow him with one, and how'd you guys come up with the idea?


That was a descision on Mike/James's part to spruce up the old design. I rather like it, myself.

General Tekno wrote:And I don't know if anyone's asked this before, but how do you make a living other than Sonic comics? I can't see that paying all the bills...


Sonic actually pays well enough to be a substantial portion of my budget. I wouldn't starve without it, but it's very nice to have it. During the last school year I was part of the technology department of my old private school in the mornings and then part of the afterschool program in the afternoon. Right now I'm full time with the Tech Dept. with a couple of afternoon options when the school year starts back up.

Issue 164 has been received by some subscribers. Within a few hours, Anonymous's identity will be common knowledge among fans. When will you begin accepting questions related to Anonymous and TDS again? There are a couple questions I'd love to ask.

Haaay.

Got a question about 164's backup that I'll put in a spoiler tag just in case.

Hey Ian have you seen the teaser trailers for Spiderman 3 and the live action Transformers movie?

In the interest (and sympathy) for the fans who are dodging spoilers in Bullet Time, I want to hold off all TDS Q&A until at least a week after it hits regular shelves.

Yes, they will. Not alot, but they will.

I've seen the former, not the latter. All I want from Spiderman 3 is a little bit of Venom. I don't care if it's a last-scene teaser - I want the teeth, tongue and slobber. Transformers doesn't really interest me much, Croctobot's line aside.

I have 2 before i sleep:

1: Will we ever find out what happened to the President's driver(Corbin I think) in 125, did Rouge save him? Or did she have to move the president away instead?

2:In one of the Afterlife stories, Aurora says she appears the specieas of the one she is talking ot. If she ever met sally, would she be a squirerrel, a fox(or whatever hre second species is) or a mixture like sally?

After reviewing that page (StH#124), I think it's a pretty safe bet Corbin is fish food.

Without getting into the "what species is Sally" deal again - yes, Aurora would appear as the same species/hybrid as Sally. I'll go one step farther and say - If Aurora chose to appear that way.

So with Aurora - is she just so powerful that she can choose her 'corporeal' form or does she actually have none (as in she was never a living being)? And if so, what WAS her original form? Human?

I think Aurora is so deep in the Chaos Force that she'd have the ability to give herself a physical form if she so desired. As for her origin, I'm playing that one close to the vest. I don't know when/if I'll get to reveal that, so it's remaining a secret for now.

Hey Ian just want to know if you met any of the current or past Archie Sonic crew? Ken, Karl, Spaz, Dawn Best etc.

Also has Ken Penders given you any good luck complements on your new job?

I was chatting to a friend in the usual manner, over biscuits and tea while idly discussing the news of the day, and when our husbands would be back from hunting, or if the local grocer had recieved that new bicycle he ordered last week, and we got to gossiping about Off-Panel, as housewives are want to do. Now, I'm honestly not sure if this question's been asked before, and I did my best to look through the Contents page (no small feat) and I didn't see it listed, so I'm going to venture forth and ask if we're ever going to see the "Astonishing Adventures of Ian Flynn And His Magical Typing Fingers" or "The Intrepid Voyagers of Tracey Yardley!: An Animators' Tale" gracing those bountiful panels any time soon? Because I would love to see that.

Now if you'll excuse me, I must go rekindle the fire.

Somehow I doubt "magic fingers" would make it past the Comics Code.

Ian's ability to type about 500, 000 words per second wouldn't get past the Comics Code? MAN! What sort of standards do those jerks go by!?

Oh, that kind of magic. What a difference a word makes. Typing magic shouldn't be a problem.

I'd claim you have a dirty mind, but I'd be calling the kettle black.

Sorry Ian, for the images which we are probably placing in your tiny mind.

Did I say tiny? I meant GIGANTIC!
