Word Balloons: Bigfoot becomes lead in comic

/> Researching strange conspiracies and undiscovered creatures has led to some interesting encounters for Grecian. "A few weeks ago, I needed to look something up in a noncirculating book at my local library, so I couldn't take it home with me and I had to sit at a table there. A man sitting at the next table over saw me reading this obscure book about conspiracy theories and decided I belonged in his world. He leaned way over and, after getting my attention, asked me if I was aware that the library staff was plotting against us,” he said. "I got a lot of great material from him for ‘Proof.'”

The first five-issue story concerns El Chupacabra, a Puerto Rican cryptid, who is stalking the American Midwest looking for Proof.

There are more monsters and creatures to come in future issues.

"You'll also get to meet The Dover Demon, a bizarre cryptid which was witnessed three times in the early '70s and then disappeared forever, and the Cottingley Fairies, which were actually a hoax perpetrated by a couple of little girls in the early 1900s. The fairies are interesting because they became so famous that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, publicly vouched for their authenticity,” Grecian said.
