Sending out BSBdG's to PAUL POPE.
I had seen Pope's work here and there before I latched on to the superlative 100%, mostly in anthologies. I was not aware of his THB books, or even (at first) of 100%'s predecessor Heavy Liquid. Once I got the bug, though, I made it a point to pick up pretty much everything he's done since-Liquid, Batman Year 100, his issue of Solo. He is one of the few absolute genius stylists to come along in the last ten years, and whatever he turns his attention to is always worthwhile. He can also heal the sick and cause lame beggars to walk. Aw, I'm kidding about that last part.
