    Eddie Wright & Jesse Balmer’s “Tyranny of the Muse #1”

    Frank Fisher is nothing. He wants to be something. When Bonnie — a mysterious, chain-smoking “muse” — offers assistance by injecting literal seeds of inspiration directly into his brain through a festering wound, his world is changed forever. In Tyranny of the Muse, the couple find themselves on a twisted path littered with addiction, self-loathing, and surreal romance. Through it all, they rely only on each other as they search for the endlessly elusive “somethingness.”
    Written by Eddie Wright
    Illustrated by Jesse Balmer 
    6.75″ x 10.25″, 48 pages. $6
    Full-color cover with b&w interior

  7. "April 27. Incapable of living with people, of speaking. Complete immersion in myself, thinking of myself. Apathetic, witless, fearful. I have nothing to say to anyone - never."
    — From The Diaries of Franz Kafka (via kafkaesque-world)

    (via journalofanobody)


  8. "I cried out, just to hear the scream which is answered by nothing, and from which nothing takes the strength of the scream, which therefore rises up, without any counterpoise, and cannot cease even when it grows silent."
    — Franz Kafka, Unhappiness  (via kafkaesque-world)

  10. "My soul has lost possibility. If I were to wish for something, I would noth wish for wealth or power but the passion of possibility, for the eye, eternally young, eternally ardent, that sees possibility everywhere. Pleasure disappoints, possibility does not."

    Soren Kierkegaard
