What if they don’t believe us, Rick?

(Click on the image to MONSTER size it!)
We get a better look at the kids and their hot-rod in this panel.  Just a pair of young couples out for a double-date perhaps?  The girls are wearing Rick and Al’s high-school jackets.  Would have probably been a nice scene if not for that “Crazy Bird” that Al mentions.  We’ll get a look at that “bird” next time!
The inspiration for this scene comes from a first encounter with the “Mothman” creature as described in “The Mothman Prophecies” written by John Keel.  The Mothman appeared in conjunction with UFO sightings in Point Pleasant, West Virginia in the 1960’s.  Point Pleasant is about 2 1/2 hours from where I am right now, and the stories have a great, isolated, rural horror feel that I really enjoy.  I need to go there soon for a visit!
Oh hey, I’ve also added lots of Ghost Zero content that I’ve had up on the web AND some which has only been seen before in print!  Click on the GHOST ZERO banner on the right to see em! ———->
Just curious…any of you out there ever seen something you thought was a UFO?

  1. yes!
    A bunch of my family (15-20) people were camping in northern california when i was around 14 or 15 years old, so '92 or '93 (something like that).

    We saw a light up in the sky, on the other side of the lake, it was moving like a helicopter or something like that would but it did a weird little jerk in the air. The move wasn't a move a normal aircraft could do. It started listing downward and then dropped in a falling manner. Light from it, lit up the trees behind it, while whatever it was was blocked by trees in the foreground. The light within the trees faded after a few seconds and we didn't see smoke or fire.

    Most of our family members saw the light when it was moving “normally.” They dismissed it as a helicopter, which we should have been able to hear across the lake, and there was no sound. Only my cousin and i saw it go down. and our parents wouldn't let us go to the other side of the lake at 10pm.

  2. You are kidding me! The story you just told me was straight out of the “Mothman Prophecies” by John Keel. Weird lights in mysterious places acting in strange ways. Wild!
    John has a theory that UFO's Ghosts and Religious events are all facets of a single event. What that event is, is a matter of debate, but I love hearing stories like this.
    Thanks, Matt!

  3. I don't remember the specific year, but there was a really bright light that appeared in the sky over Flemingsburg just after sundown one summer back in the mid to late 70s. We were on the ridge above town on 32E. I think it was a meteor burning up in the atmosphere, but if speople wanted to believe that it was an alien spaceship, they could convince themselves of it. It was an incredibly bright light. It seemed to move quickly to the Northwest for a shortways, but knowing what I do about science I'm sure it was a meteor burning up in the atmosphere. It might be interesting to see if there are any news stories about it.
