My terrible plans are finally coming to fruition. Two weeks ago you all thought I was gonna kill the dog. Last week I faked you out and killed the deer instead. But that was all just an elaborate ruse to set up my double-fake-out this week where the poachers are gonna kill Bigfoot! Man, things have taken a bloodthirsty turn around here lately.
Are today’s events portents of a dark future? Well, we’ve been through a similar situation before. In fact, panels two & three of today’s page are virtually identical to the final two panels of page 78 when things got dicey and The Naturalist promised to take care of things.
Gotta admit…I got a little misty seeing The Naturalist again. I love that guy. As you recall, The Naturalist did solve the problem for Bigfoot, but it cost him dearly. I wonder if this situation will turn out just as tragically. If Bigfoot can shake himself out of that guilt-ridden funk (rooted in the mistaken belief that he keeps getting his friends killed) he might stand a chance. But if he’s gonna bust out some heroic Bigfoot moves he’d better hurry. Chet’s got an itchy trigger finger. Stop by next week to see how it turns out.
So, I’ve been ramping up efforts to get Untold Tales of Bigfoot noticed lately — sharing it as much as I can, trying some advertising here and there. It’s all in an effort to get enough readers to support a Kickstarter and get this thing printed. To that end, there are simple ways you folks can help and I’d surely appreciate it.
As usual, you can vote for Untold Tales of Bigfoot at Top Webcomics. Very simple, just click, click, click.
And the response to the UTOB Facebook Page has been great so far! I’ve been posting the early pages of the comic, all-new process images, and links to the talented people who have sent me fan art. When there’s news about the Kickstarter or UTOB merchandise, it’ll be featured on the Facebook page. So, if you’re a Facebook user and wanna help the cause, like it and share it and enjoy it. -v
