Comic description

"Checkmate" is a webcomic set in the universe of "Twin Peaks", the famous 1990s TV series created by David Lynch. Set four years prior to the series' events, it serves as an unofficial prequel, exploring the backstory of "Twin Peaks"' main character Dale Cooper.

Pittsburgh, 1985. FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper and his partner Windom Earle are assigned to protect Earle's wife, Caroline, after an attack was made on her life under mysterious circumstances. As all three of them move to a safe house for Caroline's protection, little do they know that things are about to get much, much worse.



My name is Lili, and I'm a 26-year-old freelance illustrator and comic artist, also working as a registered nurse in Paris, France.

When I'm not busy drawing things or saving people's lives in the E.R., I sail the Seven Seas on wooden tall ships, write movie reviews, watch TV series and eat a lot of chocolate.

"Small typo"
Last of Gordon's speech ballon: degee->degree.

You can erase this typo report if you want.
Thanks for sharing your work! I like it very much.
Good luck in the fight against heat. Summer is coming...

Yeah, I've read the book! You're right, it's not OOC. It's just something we don't often get to see in the show - Coop's "dark side", so to speak. Which is one of the many things I love about Twin Peaks: Lynch & Frost managed to create a complex, three-dimensional main character who's been through "lots of shit", as you said, without making him the typical "tortured hero" -- you know, that brooding, silent, neurotic cop with lots of inner demons and a drinking problem. =D

I just love that Cooper, having been through a lot, still manages to be so cheerful, lighthearted and enthusiastic about everything. It's such a welcome change from your average "TV cop" character!

It's about 38°C (102°F) here in Paris these days, and I think the heat is affecting my already-slow-ish computer, because it literally took me a whole hour to open-resize-export-upload this page. Photoshop is running so slowly I can barely work (and Netflix keeps buffering while I'm watching House of Cards and it's so frustrating, dammit!).

Anyway - enjoy today's update! (While I'm sitting here hoping for cold and rain and snow.)

well, its actually not that far off from how Coop is. just because he was very peppy in the show doesn't mean that he can't be sad because Coop has REALLY gone through some shit if you read his autobiography, lol. like, his mother died at age 16...which he WAS quite angry and depressed about (because who wouldn't be?) and a girl he cared about ALSO died at a young age when he was a teenager. Coop has been through a lot of shit, and most likely HAS dealt with some mental health problems, including depression. so, this is totally not OOC at all, hon. =)

Now that we have seen what Diane looks like, I wonder if your comic had any influence or if you and Lynch are just on the same page :)
