Doop and Nibbler / Ch'p and Squirrel Girl

I thought I would throw together some of my favorite lower-profile characters on this cover.  Nibbler started out as a cute pet on Futurama, and was eventually revealed to be one of the most pivotal characters on the show.  Doop, the breakout star from Marvel's X-Statix, looks to be making a small comeback soon.  Squirrel Girl is one of the more inventive and unique Marvel heroines and her appearances are always fun.  Ch'p was a cool GL and I never quite forgave DC for running him over with a truck in Green Lantern: Mosaic.

Bonus points if you can properly translate Doop's speech balloon!

Google-fu to the rescue!

Hey Rob, "You Stink!" :D

I LOVED how they handled Ch'p on GL:TAS. Especially when he got "introduced" to Hal.

Squirrel Girl is like the little character that could. She started out as a one-off joke, and now she's appeared in several games, a number of cameos, and so on. Has she gotten her own one-shot or mini yet?

Ding Ding Ding! Give that gal a ceegar! That is the correct translation!

Given his (probably intentional) resemblance to Slimer of the Ghostbusters, I can see why Doop would be the most popular character of the X-Statix team. Any chance of seeing them on a cover, as part of a mistaken identity slugfest against the Atomics?
