|NOTE TO SELF: Do NOT screw with Bigfoot! (from Bigfoot #3)|
|Bigfoot Issue #1.|
Bigfoot (2005) presents the ape-man not as a Harry and the Henderson lovable lunk, but rather (as one might expect from Zombie) a brutal force of nature out to protect his Pacific Northwest territory. While Bigfoot is the draw for the book, he spends much of the time in the shadows (at least in the first three issues in my possession), appearing only to tear through the human cast before disappearing again. The well crafted narrative centers around Bill Fuller, a man who survived an attack by the beast twenty-years earlier as a child; an attack that took the lives of his parents. Now haunted by his loss, and seeking revenge, Bill convinces some locals to help him hunt the predator...
Now that I have re-found these three issues, I feel somewhat obligated (driven) to, seven years later, finish the story I started in 2005. Fortunately, I was able to locate a copy via Mycomicshop.com for the price of $3.90, nine cents less than the original cover price--which back in 2005 was not an inexpensive cost for a single issue. Once I get around to ordering it and adding it to the other four issues, that will be at least one "collector's sin" repented for, and a Rare Find made whole for future readings.
Bigfoot (2005) by Niles, Zombie and Corben is available as a trade paperback from a number of online stores or, better yet, check the back issue racks, bins and boxes at your local comic shop.
