The cool thing about doing a comic based in Tennessee, is that there are plenty of creepy ass places in the Upper Cumberland Plateau.  It is a very neglected area, still very wild and yet has connections to major historical events and unique places.  Oak Ridge is one of these weird places. The Y-12 area is off limits and still does nuclear projects.  There are whole areas with high fences that the general public will never see.  A fantastic place to hide magical beasts.
