You gotta ask yourself…if you came face-to-face with a monster in the woods, would you be able to think rationally? If you thought you were within mere moments of ending up in the belly of a sasquatch would you act with bravery and honor? You never really know until faced with that kind of terror. In the case of this much-maligned dad, (oh, the emails I got…) he panicked. But he did manage to grab his wife and kid before hotfooting it out of there, thanks goodness. Now he’ll have to deal with the consequences of his actions…as do we all. As do we all.

Also, thanks to everyone who’s following the comic. I appreciate the support. I’ve been thinking lately about having some sort of art giveaway, maybe a random drawing of some sort. Not sure how to run it or what I’ll be giving away, but I’ve always got some sort of Bigfoot art lying around. What am I gonna do with it? I’ll probably run a contest aimed at my loyal followers, so if you’re following this blog, you’re in good shape. And if you’d like to follow the blog, either through email or WordPress (or both or whatever) go ahead. It’s painless. Perhaps there’s an art giveaway in your future. -v

Untold Tales of Bigfoot is for grown-ups and kids. Let’s keep the comments appropriate.

  1. Yeah, the dad is kind of a whimpy schmo. A hefty dose of Bigfoot wouldn’t do him any harm, I think.

  2. ‘Stinks like cheese!’ sounds like my daughter, love it! On a different note, I really dig your style, Vince. Good Stuff!

    • Hey, thanks a lot! And thanks for reading and commenting on UTOB. I’m glad you’re diggin’ the comic. Sounds to me like your daughter has a knack for artful self-expression. Probably gets it from her father. -v

  3. If this were a real life situation, the dad acted with wisdom and speed. He took care of the safety of his family. It is one thing to gamble with your own skin but not that of innocents. Escape from deadly situations is much better than injury or death. Survival is not a competative game where losers lose points and can play again.

    Now for something completely different, I like where you’re going with this story and the style you are drawing.

    • Aaaaand THANK YOU, Ol’ Gul! I know it’s easy for everyone to get down on the dad, and that’s ok. I think some people are really having fun being disappointed in his decision. But really, he’s out with his family and an honest-to-goodness monster lunges at him from out of the shadows. As Ol’ Gul says, I think getting his family to safety should be his primary concern. And if Scout had been nearby, the dad would’ve grabbed him too, of that I’m certain. But how could he wait around for the dog to show up with a monster on the loose? We’ve all seen Cujo. Being trapped in a car doesn’t look like fun!

      Thanks for commenting. I’m glad you’re digging the story and the art and I hope you stick around! -v

  4. Dialogue is pitch perfect. Loving this!

    • Thanks, Anni! You can attribute that to lots of long car rides with my family. And yes, while I look back fondly on my childhood, numerous specific aspects of it certainly stank like cheese. -v
