Gregory has proven that with hard work, determination and the desire to improve that fanboys are not just dreams, but doers as well.

2) Zenescope has brokered a deal for a ‘Grimm’ animated series, what can you tell us about the coming series, the distribution and which characters will appear first? Will each season focus on a specific fairy tale or will it be intertwined like the books?
RG: I just saw the pilot in NYCC and it was amazing. People new to the Grimm universe and fans alike are in for something truly special. As for the specific details concerning the series itself, distribution, characters, the season, and whatnot I couldn’t really say. Writing and editorial take up so much time as it is that I rarely involve myself in the other departments. But I’m extremely excited to see what’s next.
Being a writer never stops. It consumes you completely and you never really stop working. So learning to stop and say no more working, this time belongs to them, is something I make sure happens as often as I can.
RG: It’s not something I really pay attention to be honest. The definition of things like geek and nerd have all fallen away over the years with the exception that the one thing all these people share is that they are passionate about something more so than anything else. I love comics, movies, toys, video games, etc, and at the same time I love going dancing at clubs, being surrounded by beautiful women, hanging out with friends, visitng exotic locales and living life to the fullest. Some of the geekiest people I know in this business are almost perceived as rock stars by their fans and the industry so at some point the comparison just fails.
