The Dover Demon by Shadyufo The Dover Demon by Shadyufo
The next installment of my Cryptid Series! :D

In April 1977 several sightings of a strange being were reported in Dover, Massachusetts. Several witnesses reported seeing a small bipedal creature approximately four feet tall with pale skin, long spindly limbs, and no facial features other than large glowing eyes(reported as being either orange or green). There were only a handful of sightings in 1977 and no credible sightings have been reported since. Many cryptozoologists and ufologists debate whether is was an unknown creature or a type of 'grey' alien. Or a misidentified baby moose, as one investigator suggested.

I can't say that I see a lot of evidence for the Dover Demon being a real thing, but he sure is a cool-sounding beastie! Stuck the UFO up there for the hell of it.

Goodness. If I ever saw one of those on the road, I'd just hit it with my truck. XP

How do you mistake a baby moose for a type of Grey alien?

=shakes head=

Well, this is a nice pic. Kinda has that old school comic feel without all the distracting ink lines ^-^

No clue, but that's actually one of the suggested identities of the creature I remember reading about. If that was the case, I'm sure there was an ungodly amount of alcohol involved.

Thank you! I have plans to do some more cryptids in this style one of these days. Glad you like!

Yeah, seriously weirded me out when I first read about it as a kid. Creepy stuff.

No kidding! That's what a lot of people have tried to pass it off as. xD

Aye. Many cryptozoologists don't even consider the Dover Demon to be a cryptid. They put in into the 'alien' category.

Either way, no doubt a freaky little bugger to see on the side of the road in the middle of the night. x3
