(W/A) Dash Shaw An Eisner Award-nominee! Fifty years from now, a devastating civil war has left the country in shambles. Professor Paulie Panther - botanist, writer, and hopeless romantic - arrives in the experimental forest town of Boney Borough to research a strange plant growing behind the high school. Paulie soon discovers that the plant, when smoked, imparts telepathic powers. But when he shares this remarkable drug with his new friends, he finds that they're not interested in mind-expansion. Indeed, it appears that Paulie's brash individualism might not be welcome in a town that prefers conformity!
