Joseph Calabrese is a freelance screenwriter. He was one of the winners at Slamdance Film Festival in 2004 for his religious thriller Second Coming and, as a result, has received interest from several producers.

The "Gunga Din" short comic is a spinoff from that project and features characters found in HMBB. Visit for more info on the project.
