Q: How did this project get started?
A: About 3 and half years ago, I was doing a comic called Invasion Mobius (which, btw, you still can see in Fanfair at Sonic HQ) for Sonic HQ. I left the Sonic fandom around only 4 pages in, so I never had the chance to finish it. After the 3+ years, and around 150+ emails asking, demanding, begging, I finally approached Vector of Sonic HQ about restarting the project (well, the other reason is I needed some cartoon furries in my art portfolio). He agreed and the project was on. As the project started though, it changed to something entirely different from the original story. It also received a new name.

Q: Then how did you get the staff for the comic?
A: I decided that I was going to be doing the art from the start, so that solved a lot of problems. I didn't have to look for any other artist. I was able to get Tony to sign on for the colorist position because he was the colorist on the original Invasion Mobius. You'll see that both of us improved a lot over the last 3+ years. As for the rest, the writers Matt Johnson and J. Weekley came from the Mobius Forum. I just asked for help and they responded. Both of them are very good, I just gave them the plot and they made it happen.

Q: So how did you like drawing this comic?
A: Well, I don't really like drawing cartoon furries, I much rather draw realistic humans. So in that sense, I want to finish this project as soon as possible. But I also don't want to rush things because I'm not very good, relative to my figure drawing skills, at drawing furries. For this reason, we're putting out each page very slowly, about 1-2 per month during a school semester month. This is a side, side, side project for me, so please don't complain too much about the slow production pace. I haven't touched any Sonic characters for over 3 years, so for now, I'm still looking at model sheets for a lot of them.

Q: Then how long is this comic going to be?
A: Right now, I'm guessing 70-80 pages. So it'll take upwards to 2-3 years.

Q: Can you tell us a little bit about the story?
A: It's about time travel, that's obvious now. I want to say more, but I think you'll just have to wait and see. It's a very good story that's very straight forward, so if I say anything at all, the ending will be spoiled.

Q: Drat, then can you tell us why the comic is called "Butterflies?"
A: The name Butterflies was suggested by the editor of the comic, Angie. I wrote it into the story. It fits very well with the general themes of the comic, and that's all I can say for now. The true meaning of the name will be revealed at the end of the comic, probably the page next to the last page.

Q: Why are you making the comic based on SatAM and not Archie or the Games.
A: Well, as far as the games go, you really can't draw out an epic story from the few plots that they have put out. Archie's story has too many plotholes in it that it'd be hard for us to fit a story in. So for this story we had in mind, the SatAM universe was the best fit.

Q: Can you comment on the current state of the Sonic fan comics?
A: Well, I don't follow the fan comics very much, if at all. But I hear that there are a lot of them. I think that's good for the fandom in general that so many people are aspiring to create their own versions of the Sonic universe. It also helps them develope organization/drawing/coloring/editing skills. So the more, the better.

Q: Any last thoughts?
A: Well, I hope everyone enjoys reading the comic and am looking forward to any comments the readers might have. Thank you.
