(W) Hana Ros (A) Matteo Farinella
is a psychedelic journey through the human brain that explores how we feel, remember, and dream by way of graphic novel. Examining the differences between brain, mind, and soul as well as how different mental illnesses and substances impact our brain activity, it ventures from deserted islands and neuron forests to memory caves and castles of deception. Using a mythical brigade of characters like guitar-playing sea slugs, giant toads, and sea monsters to tell the story, Hana Ros creates a "down the rabbit hole" atmosphere that takes the reader on a trip that feels at times psychedelic, although the art is done entirely in black and white.
