Mr. Grant,

My name is [name withheld] and I am currently conducting undergraduate research regarding trends and themes in comics and graphic novels. I would love to conduct a short interview, given your willingness, on the topic. The interview could be conducted via email, or in about 15 minutes over the phone or VOIP. For now, we can communicate via this forum, as I would prefer to not post my email in a public space.

Thank you for your time.
