“At the crossroads of pop art, ecology, esotericism, and fable, a tiny thing has sprouted from the topsoil. That thing is The Mushroom Knight—a graphic novel that has incubated for a very long time in the cavern of my imagination… a Mad Cave, indeed,” said Oliver Bly. “It is with ecstatic gratitude that I invite the reader to follow me on a weird and wild path into the deep dark woods, where worlds both seen and unseen have a curious tale to tell us about the ecosystems of our planet, and the ecosystems of our innermost beings. I feel a deep sense of beauty and curiosity in this place. I look forward to sharing it with you.”
