Superman Sides with the No-Kill Sasquatch Debate

For those that don't know. One of the most polarizing topics in the Bigfoot Community is the Kill/No-Kill debate. It may seem obvious what the two sides advocate, but why do they advocate killing or not killing Bigfoot? In a nutshell:

TEAM KILL: We will never prove Sasquatch exists without physical proof of a body.

TEAM NO-KILL: There are other scientific methods that are just as acceptable, even if it is to capture one. Some go further and say it is a morally cruel.

Most people have picked their sides and persuasion of of either argument is almost futile. But what would Superman do? More specifically Superboy?

At the they break down the 1977 Superboy/Sasquatch issue in great detail. Noting the Sasquatch issue was the transition from boy to man. We just wanted to share the panels in which several Bigfoot terrorize Smallville, takes out Superboy's girlfriend, and then Superboy stops short of killing a Sasquatch. You can click any of the photos below to see enlarged version.


If I didn't get to turn a car or bend a street light,
I guess I would settle for a trash can to stomp on


After Superboy uses superbreath to get rid of the the Sasquatch,
They resort to classic Sasquatch behavior rock throwing


This was all a test? How cruel are Kryptonian robot teachers?

Footprints: A Monster Murder Mystery

One of our fans alerted us to this great project these guys are trying to get funded through KickStarter

What is Kickstarter?

They’re the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world.

Every month, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields.

A new form of commerce and patronage. This is not about investment or lending. Project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project.

Great concept right? What is even better is that this project is near and dear to our hearts; its creative writing, art and of course Bigfoot. We've reviewed Bigfoot Comics before. Below is a description of the four issue comic titled Footprints: A Monster Murder Mystery

Footprints is a four issue mini-series by Joey Esposito and Jonathan Moore. We’ve already completed (and printed) the first issue -- which you can read in its entirety here -- but now we need your help to finish the remaining issues as well as the collected trade paperback edition!

Joey is a writer from New England displaced in Los Angeles, California, currently living with his totally awesome girlfriend, his cat, his dog, and a whole bunch of back problems. He's been reading comics since his Dad bought him an Adventures of Superman issue co-starring Gang Buster. Jonathan lives in South Carolina with his wife and two daughters, living on coffee and burning the candle at both ends to do what he loves -- both comics and fine art. Creator-owned comics are becoming harder and harder to support as the big two increase their market share, so make your voice heard by supporting fresh new voices!

So where is your money going? We’ll use our Kickstarter funds to cover the page rates of our artists, and then to market and publish the rest of the series ourselves. The comics industry is a tough place for independent startups, so we’re counting on the unified power of the Internet to help bring Footprints through to completion! Don’t forget, you’re helping to fund three entire issues AND a trade paperback! And with any luck, let our dreams of making stuff up for a living come true.

You can see these guys are close to their goal. So, lets help them in the homestretch and get them to the finish line! You can donate as little as a dollar. The details for levls of donation are at this link.
