ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Oliver Bly is a cartoonist, mycology enthusiast, and invasive Philadelphian currently residing in Western Washington. His debut graphic novel, The Mushroom Knight, is an ontological urban faerie tale that explores the ecology of our day from a variety of perspectives—some plant, some animal, some human-animal, and some… decidedly none of the above.
THE MUSHROOM KNIGHT VOL. 1
GET TO KNOW
Gowlitrot the Gardener
Hopalong or Hops is Gowlitrot’s faithful stool-toad, werfrog, and Garden companion. More than just a mount, Hops’ wise and skeptical perspective ensures that Gowli’s back is always had at every twist and turn.
Erdagaude the Ranger
Grekin is one of Gowli’s best friends and his wannabe sidekick. Not entirely sure of himself, Grekin struggles to be included, and to be seriously listened to by anyone except his pet Snooterpillar, Pasume(puh-zoo-me) …at least when she’s not hell bent on finding a snack. Those that know Grekin best know that there’s more to the young brewmaster than first glance suggests. This little furry friend has a heart of iron and a cunning mind to boot, good for untangling knots and hunting down missing pieces of the puzzle.
