BIGFOOT KNOWS KARATE is a two-fisted slugfest akin to Godzilla Vs. Kong mixed with a healthy dose of martial arts and outright carnage in the vein of Kill Bill as Bigfoot squares off with KUNG FU 'THULHU (that's right. There's a freaking Cthulhu!).  Add a solid, meaty twist at the end and get ready to follow a gentle, cryptid warrior as he finds his way in a world where anyone can be a hunter and everyone can be the prey. If you enjoy cryptids, kaiju, psychological thrillers, over the top action and a little mystery, get ready for BIGFOOT KNOWS KARATE! .



The world is recovering from COVID-21. Global economies are in the toilet, crime rates are at record highs, and now everyday superheroes, aka “Tights,” have emerged in an attempt to right society’s wrongs.

Unfortunately, most of these Tights don’t have any professional crime-fighting skills, let alone superpowers. No, they’re out-of-work regular Joe and Jane vigilantes who often find themselves clogging up the criminal justice system and fighting a losing battle against law and order. That’s why they’re a particular pain in the ass for our protagonist—the young, brash, anti-Tights federal judge, OLIVER ANDREWS.

But when Oliver is blackmailed by Tights into helping them take down San Francisco’s major crime syndicates, he will ultimately find himself becoming the very thing he hates most—a superhero.
