Fantagraphics Books is uncommonly proud to present Champs, the second of Steven Weissman's "Yikes" books, containing the author's longest single story to date. The Big-Wheel Race comes to Milltown, and with them the sport's greatest Big Wheel champion: Johnny Takagi! He'll meet and compete with Milltown's most notorious Tykes: Li'l Bloody, the Pullapart Boy, X-Ray Spence, "Sweet" Chubby Cheeks and the Li'l Tin Stars. The Tykes (especially longtime bosom chums Li'l Bloody and the Pulapart Boy) find their friendship and loyalties tested when the charming and famous Johnny Takagi briefly joins their gang. Champs features plenty of racing action, insults, beatings, infighting, wipeouts, ghost-rides, sno-cones, hero-worship, hilarity, social climbing and even bullfighting! That's right, introducing introducing Tin Tin Deo, "the tiniest toreador"! Also starring Dead Boy, Elzie Crisler, and Kid Medusa, Champs promises to amuse and horrify readers of all ages!
