It’s a Big Foot Hunt in June with The Department of Truth

The bestselling series The Department of Truth by James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds is taking on cryptid creatures this June with a two-part hunt for BigFoot. The chase begins with The Department of Truth #10 in June and will follow on hot pursuit with The Department of Truth #11 in July.

In The Department of Truth #10, some fictions manifest in reality as dangerous, half-formed things. The Department of Truth relies on hunters to track down and contain these wild tulpas before they become too real. It’s time for Cole Turner to see this side of the job firsthand. It’s time for Cole Turner to join his first Bigfoot hunt.

In The Department of Truth #11, the rules of reality start to bend in the presence of Wild Fictions. That’s why it’s Darla’s job to hunt down so-called cryptids before belief in them can spread.
