Brian Blomerth first fused his singularly irreverent underground comix style with a heavily documented history in 2019’s Brian Blomerth’s Bicycle Day, a Technicolor account of the discovery of LSD. Today, the illustrator and graphic novelist continues his wild and woolly excursions into the history of mind-expansion with Mycelium Wassonii, an account of the lives and travels of R. Gordon and Valentina Wasson, the pair of pioneering scientists responsible for popularizing the use of psychedelic mushrooms in the United States. The Wassons’ travels took them from Russian folk wisdom to mid-century Manhattan, from the indigenous traditions of Mexico’s Mazatec people to the mysteries of ancient Rome. A globe-trotting vision of science and mysticism with appearances by J.P. Morgan, Robert Graves, Life Magazine, and the CIA, Mycelium Wassonii is a visual biography and tragic love story as only Blomerth’s Isograph pen can render it.
