Chiang, one of the Flight contributors, gave
me a wonderful watercolor painting at San Diego Comic-Con 2004,
depicting my little character Rex. I was completely
blown away. I thanked her for this amazing gift and she replied
by saying "Thank you" back. I told her, "Why are
you thanking me? I haven't done anything for you." She replied,
"Thank you for all the things you do. Thank you for being...
you!" That almost brought a tear to my pulsating eye. You can
