“While working on Issue #10, I realized pretty quickly that to capture everything we wanted to say about Bigfoots, and Cryptids, and how they fit into the larger mythology of The Department of Truth, I would have had the cut the issue down to the bone…” said Tynion IV. “But then Martin and I spoke and realized we didn’t want to do any of that. If anything we wanted to lean in to really capture the emotion of the story we’re looking to tell here. Since the dawn of man, people have been hunting the impossible out in the deepest darkest forests of the world. What truth are they really after?”
