    MINI-COMIC, GRAPHIC NOVEL:This reward is also pretty great-- and almost the same except for getting to see the internal workings of an artist in Somerville, MA., through the brief but inspiring additional mini-comic mentioned above. I will send you a copy of the first two chapters of "The Dandelion King: love and loss waiting in the gas line" and a copy of the mini-comic adventure-lette in which Heide saves-- or at least is mildly useful to-- her small corner of Somerville! O.K., this reward is also very, very good.
