Image Comics has revealed that the next story arc in The Department of Truth, the bestselling series by James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds, will feature cryptid creatures this June with a two-part hunt for BigFoot.
The series, which made its debut in September 2020, follows Cole Turner, a man who has studied conspiracy theories all his life, but he isn’t prepared for what happens when he discovers that all of them are true, from the JFK assassination to flat Earth theory and reptilian shapeshifters. One organization has been covering them up for generations. What is the deep, dark secret behind the Department of Truth?
“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?”
The cryptid adventure is slated to run in issues 10 and 11 of the series. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more on The Department of Truth and Image Comics.
