J.T. Petty told CA: "I'm thrilled by storytelling in any medium, dividing my time between movies, books, video games, and now graphic novels. A few times I've been hired to adapt from one medium to another. Paramount had me adapt the video game Splinter Cell to a movie script, and the Jim Henson company asked me to adapt [my work] for a film."
