"In this issue, I wanted to extend all these musings to the other artists I know.

"When I was a kid, I swore I saw cryptids. I had a huge imagination, and I didn’t really trust the adults around me because I thought they didn’t consider the endless possibilities as much as they could. Why couldn’t something mysterious exist? Because you’ve never seen it before? It seemed like all the grown-ups around me wrote off things that didn’t directly affect them, or things that weren’t obvious facts of life. I wanted to chase down evidence of fleeting things that were left ignored by most people."

"All of our lives we've remained in this one world, and never physically lived in any other... But we have all experienced other worlds.

This issue shows that each of us can share our unique ideas of other worlds with each other, and even though they may look different from each other they all belong to the same theme... OTHER WORLDS"

"Our fishy friends of the sea, the singers on the waves - weavers of pearls and braiders of weeds! Riders of foam and sirens in the mists. Mermaids have always had a place in folktales around the world, and they continue to be alluring and mysterious. But, this issue isn't just about mermaids!
