Is that a goat or is it the Ayahuasca? John Wilcock reports from Mexico. A comic by Ethan Persoff and Scott Marshall.
From an ongoing comic book biography of underground publisher John Wilcock. View previous installments of the John Wilcock comic here and here. (Read last week's comic: Part One of Writing Mexico on Five Dollars a Day.)
JOHN WILCOCK NEWS: We regret to announce John has recently been in the hospital. The following is posted by his assistant David:
As I address you this summer, I am unable to write. David has kindly put my words into text. I had some kind of attack affect my right side and am still unable to use pen or pencil, and when I read, the shift is somehow far to the right, so the material is out of focus. I can read one or two paragraphs at a time and I hope my condition will improve.
I am grateful to all of you who know me and have expressed sympathy, and I hope that in a few weeks, if I have the patience, a sort of semi-life will return to me.
On the off chance that someone might want to contact me, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scott and I send our best to John, and hear he's improving very well.
All readers of the John Wilcock comic are encouraged to send John a message. He's a terrific correspondent. And with a light amount of humor, based on the comic above, you might enjoy a decorated styrofoam ball in reply!
(Love to John) — Ethan
