- Comicraft was brought on to do Heroes work because John Roshell of Comicraft knows two producers: Jeph Loeb is a professional client, and Jesse Alexander is a personal friend. In fact, Jeph and Jesse argued over whose "guy" would be better for the job, until they realized that they were talking about the same guy. 
- JG helped create 9thwonders.com.
- In 2008, JG was nominated for an Eisner Award for his work on the Heroes graphic novel collection.
