I grew up on fantasy in a very intense kinda way: my mom was a Science Fantasy Illustrator, my dad a steward to comic book artists from Asia en route to Marvel & DC comics. We attended numerous conventions that involved real-life Manga characters, complete with silver outfits, orange hair & bulging boobs eating their chicken nuggets in the booth next to us. I've been to more than my share of Star Trek & Star Wars Costume Contests. Oh, Yes.
I admit there was a full decade that I Knew I was really Mai the Psychic Girl & sometimes, Alita Battle Angel.
