    Hi John,
    Long time GJ fan. I just finished re-reading the Flint Henry issues and you said you had plans for Jim Twilley to take care of some business in hell after his death. I just wanted to check in and see if there’s any chance of those getting worked out and published someday – I would sure love to see what you had planned for him! Also, I hate to beat a dead horse but with all the comic movies out, I’m still hoping a fan in the film industry will declare Grimjack a passion project and bring it to the big screen. Any news? Seriously, if they can bring a talking tree to life, why not a talking Watch-Lizard? Hope you’re doing well, and thanks for all the stories so far!
