YOU. ARE. NOT. NOTHING.
Creativity can be ugly. It can be messy. And for writer Frank Fisher, it can be downright destructive. TYRANNY OF THE MUSE, an original graphic novel by creator/writer Eddie Wright (Korsakoff Blight, Regular Show) and illustrator Dave Chisholm (Instrumental) is a darkly comic, offbeat mystery about a struggling artist, a complicated muse, and the addictive power of ideas.
As Frank Fisher attempts to complete a semi-autobiographical screenplay, he meets a mysterious muse named Bonnie who offers assistance by injecting actual seeds of inspiration directly into his brain through a festering wound in his forehead. As the drug takes hold, Frank and Bonnie embark on a surreal and strangely romantic journey through the creative process as they search for meaning, answers, and try to make sense out of a story that could change their lives forever.
In the spirit of Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes, Charlie Kaufman, and Philip K. Dick, TYRANNY OF THE MUSE is a graphic novel that explores the origins of art, the self-destructive nature of artists, and the search for meaning in a world of chaos.
