Dark Cheer: Cryptids Emerging Volume Silver


Here be stories of South African grootslang and bayou grundylow, tales of elementals, jackalopes, and flying motels. Within you'll find tiny leviathans and rock whales, cambion and kelpie, a girl between time, and a man who saves a gun's life. These are stories of cryptids who sing or swim or save us, living side-by-side so often unseen…and then seen.

So very much seen. If we look.
