I'm going to join you in praising Cheeks work in general and his Big and Choopie in particular. I first heard of him in connection with Hellboy, Animated, for which I believe he did the design work.

He's got some very cool stuff at his blog, etc. and it is well worth checking out.

Love the Cheeks pin-up. I read TTG, so of course I'm a big fan of his work.

Also, got my monthly comic mail order delivery and immediately put Second Chances #3 at the top of the pile. More great stuff! Nice use of the Dover Demon, with great character stuff throughout the issue. Can't wait for next issue and Karl.
