There's more than one surprise for Albert in that safe house... The plot thickens!
(And Windom Earle looks way too young in the last panel... For the record, he's 45 in my script.)

Check out the 'News' section for some press releases about Checkmate!

Fascinating twist at the end, Lili. It's been decades since I read "Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes" but I assume this (Earle remaining at crime scene) isn't in there. Great stuff! Also, I think you did draw him around 45, considering the gray hair.

Aw, thanks very much!! You're right, these scenes aren't in My life, my tapes at all. Since we only get Cooper's POV in the book, there's basically a two-month gap between the day of the attack and Cooper recording his first tape post-recovery. I had to imagine what happened during these months (which makes it far more interesting to write!).

Exactly! i always wanted someone to write a fanfiction about it or something. Dale Cooper: My Life, My Tapes is of my favorite books because it REALLY goes into Dale's past and personality and i am pretty obsessed with his yeah. like, i always just want to find out more and more about Dale. I just loved that through the books you find out he has daddy and mommy issues and all sorts of things. Dale becomes HUMAN and not like mister perfect. thats what i always wanted. he's actually quite a damaged, sensitive, and vulnerable character and that came across in the book but i always wanted to know what happened during these months and what his relationship was like with Caroline. XD

There are some excellent fanfictions about Cooper's past at, I don't know if you've read them... I don't read many fanfics in general (most of them are just too badly written!), but there's some really good stuff in the Twin Peaks section!

And you're right, the book gives a whole new depth to Coop's character, which is great. (Not that he was a shallow character in the Twin Peaks series - he was already very complex and well-developed!)

As for Coop's relationship with Caroline Earle... You'll learn much more about it in Checkmate Chapter Two. We haven't seen a lot of Caroline in this first chapter (poor girl got killed after a couple of pages, haha), but the next will have lots of flashbacks, so you'll get to know her better =)

Gosh, are you in the UK or thereabouts? It's 12:58 AM here in Seattle but last comment shows as being 8 hours later, 8:58 AM. Is it time distortion due to my Peaks proximity?

Mmh... I think you might have ended up in the Black Lodge there! (Nah, it's just that j'habite à Paris. Not quite as mysterious.) Yes, David & Kyle were here last week and went to the Silencio, I would have loved to see them!

You're lucky to be living in the Pacific Northwest... I assume you've been to Snoqualmie and North Bend? I'm traveling to Seattle next Summer (only for a couple of days, then we're heading south), I hope we'll get the chance to visit those places! I'll try to convince my non-Twin Peaksy friends that it's worth it...

Ah, vous habitez Paris! Incroyable que David et Kyle viennent d'etre la!

Thanks, Lili! As a hardcore Twin Peaks fan, I'm really enjoying this awesome comic. Wish I could buy a paper edition. If you ever consider doing that, you are definitely getting an order from Argentina ;)
Thanks again and keep up with the awesome work (Imagine a Cooper's thumbs up here)

Thank you! I'd love to get this printed one day... There would probably be some issues with copyright and stuff, but hey, maybe... ;)

(Ha, we need a "Cooper thumbs up" GIF for this comment section!)
