Description - Bodyworld by Dash Shaw

From the astonishing imagination of Dash Shaw, visionary author of "Bottomless Belly Button," comes a darkly fantastical graphic novel about a small town, a lowlife botanist, and a mysterious plant with strange powers. It s 2060, and 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. As he conducts his research, he befriends some of the local residents: Miss Jem, the alluring science teacher; Billy Borg, Boney Borough s star athlete; and Pearl Peach, the rebellious schoolgirl. 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. In fact, it appears that Paulie s brash individualism might not be at all welcome in a town that prefers conformity to eccentricity. Nominated for a 2009 Eisner Award and with a bold, innovative design, "BodyWorld "is a mind-blowing blend of science-fiction, classic high school drama, and futuristic what-if. It is at once funny and fearless and sure to be the graphic novel event of the year."
