The Bigfoot Mission by AK-Is-Harmless The Bigfoot Mission by AK-Is-Harmless
This comic is based on a conversation I had with a coworker earlier this week. The conversation started as a discussion about politicians and global warming, but that quickly became boring. So instead, the conversation turned to politicians and Bigfoot.

No U.S. politician is going to come out and say “I believe Bigfoot is real,” because 1.) there’s no political reason for doing so and 2.) the Bigfoot enthusiast community isn’t a large enough voting bloc. But what if that was different? What if, say, the Christian majority in this country was suddenly interested in Bigfoot? Would politicians care? Of course they would. And you know how to get the Christian majority interested in Bigfoot? Actively try to convert him.

This is a very long-winded way of saying, “We need to figure out a way to get more politicians talking about Bigfoot.” The conversion idea would be a good one if Bigfoot wasn’t already a Pentecostal.

I drew a Catholic priest here mainly because his “costume” is more readily recognized than say, an Evangelical minister or a Mormon missionary or anyone belonging to the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Also, Winslow bringing an axe to a Bigfoot hunt shouldn’t be surprising, but I love the idea of bringing a butterfly net along.

As Mr. Foot's personal representative, I speak for him when I say he is out raged by the religious allegations made against him. Mr. Foot is not a pentacostal nor a zoroastrian nor Buddhist nor any of the other religious allegations made against him. Mr. Foot also wishes to let you know that he is not interested in converting to catholicism. Mr. Foot is a proud member of the Greek Orthodox church but he is ashamed to say that due to these unholy hunters like the ones depicted in this art work has been forced to live in solitude at an undisclosed location. Mr. Foot also wishes for me to tell the poacher who lopped off his left foot that he is looking for him and will reclaim his rightful property.

You know, I'm so used to Winslow's absurdity that I didn't even notice that there was a butterfly net until you pointed it out. Oops.
I did, however, notice that one guy's buckteeth. Because, you know...I'm shallow or something...

Bigfoot is more likely a Unitarian. There should be more toon with priests and axes.

I support Winslow on this one, kill that piss-poor excuse for a cryptid.
It's kind over shadows far more interesting cases, such as the goat man, Kettle-cat, Ax-hound, and that one fish that flies in the sky backwards to keep water out of it's eyes.


The last three are actually traditional New England Lumberjack lore.
