Writer/Artist, Oliver Bly
Oliver Bly is an animator, cartoonist, tin whistler, archer, and mycology enthusiast living in Olympia, WA. The Mushroom Knight is his first graphic novel work.

“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.

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.” – Writer/Artist, Oliver Bly
