A writer of things.


A comic series created and written by me.


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.

Five issues of an earlier version of the TYRANNY OF THE  MUSE comic were previously published digitally by Study Group Comics and  Alternative Comics. And a small limited run was printed for convention appearances. A new graphic novel is being partially re-drawn, re-edited, and  expanded with all new original material.
