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

Gather round, young and old — and hear tales of bygone days. Back in olden times, citizens would mass at a house of coffee, wherein skilled java alchemists would concoct special blends and apply artisanal wizardry to make each steaming chalice an appointment for the taste buds. Granted, said wizards, once known as baristas, were […]
The last few weeks have given us all a lot to think about. As we watched stores close, Costco lines snake through parking lots and items like hand sanitizer and toilet paper disappear everywhere like they were Lady Gaga tickets, there’s one significant takeaway it’s safe to say we all can agree on. We should […]
Whether it was Bach or Chopin, Ray Charles or Jerry Lee Lewis, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Alicia Keys or Norah Jones, there was someone whose mastery on the piano made you think, wow, I wish I knew how to do that. It’s a singular, almost timeless skill — and if you love music, there’s no […]
