The Chuthulla King comes to us courtesy of CupidsArt, and is actually the first piece submitted into the Figure and Custom Modifications section of the Gallery. It seems fitting somehow, since Thanksgiving is a time of reflection, and now we are reflecting on the very first custom posted! Kudos, CupidsArt.

Now you're caught up. So, without further adieu:
