“Wright’s first comic is brilliant, a raw and honest piece brought to life with Balmer’s savage and intuitive art.
“If you’re the kind of reader who, after experiencing one of Grant Morrison’s more “out there” writings, say “You know, I need something even more weird” try TYRANNY OF THE MUSE.”
Just read @eddiewright86 ‘s Tyranny of the Muse #1. Incredible. Delves into the reality of writer’s block and brings it to terrifying life.

“Balmer and Wright do fly together. There’s a captivating sequence in a diner where Fisher begins fantasizing about the ‘muse’ sitting across from him, and it resonates as adaptation of our sloppy human emotions overlapping, pancaked with a ton of sleep deprivation. For their first collaboration, they are a talented pair with a lot of promise.”
“What Wright and Balmer have done here is akin to genius. They turn creativity into destruction, the muse into the dealer, and provide, perhaps, a cautionary tale to artists who feel bereft of inspiration.”
“Refreshingly original and uniquely different, TYRANNY OF THE MUSE #1 will keep readers interested by its believable and deeply flawed protagonist.”
“Tyranny’s strongest bit is the first scene detailing Frank’s illness, which has open layouts and clearly established space. I feel most connected to Frank in these cinematic sequences that draw me into his point of view.”
