Comic #1977

1 SASquaTCH Assistant: Dr Goodall! Look at that!
1 Jane Goodall: That's Dame Goodall to you...
2 {The Surgeon's Photo of a mysterious plesiosaur-like neck and head rising above the Loch}
3 Jane Goodall: My god, we've found it. It's all fuzzy and indistinct. I can't really tell what it is.
4 SASquaTCH Assistant: I always thought that was just poor photography...
4 Jane Goodall: Nope. Classic sign of an actual cryptid.

The photo used here is the famous "Surgeon's Photo", taken in 1934 and purported to be of the Loch Ness Monster until 1994 when it was admitted to be a deliberate hoax by the original perpetrator.

2019-07-07 Rerun commentary: Much like the natural ability of cryptids, aliens also have special technology in their UFOs to make them look fuzzy and indistinct in photos.

I extracted the "monster" from the Surgeon's Photo and overlaid it into the background for panels 1 and 3, with a bit of transparency to make it a bit more indistinct. In hindsight, I probably should have added a touch of Gaussian blur as well. (Or a bit more, if I did already. It's hard to tell... it's so indistinct...)
