Why did Korsakoff Blight have to die?
That is the question at the center of KORSAKOFF BLIGHT, a darkly hilarious existential mystery. What do a troubled writer, a clueless private eye, a dead guy, and a kid who's perpetually doing battle with a psychotic murderer have in common? Maybe nothing. Maybe everything. In KORSAKOFF BLIGHT, these four characters explore the origins of fiction, storytelling, and creativity in a strange, yet deceptively simple setting that echoes the work of Philip K. Dick, Franz Kafka, and Charlie Kaufman.
Korsakoff Blight is a writer. So was his father, whose name was also Korsakoff Blight. When the elder Blight dies and leaves his house to his estranged son, Korsakoff Jr. embarks on bizarre journey into the center of the creative soul, all while wrestling with the specter of a lost father.
What does it mean to be an artist? What does it mean to be a husband? What does it mean to be a father? What does it mean to be a creator? What does it mean to created? What does it mean to be anything? Part existential mystery, part surrealistic nightmare, part coming-of-age comedy, KORSAKOFF BLIGHT by author Eddie Wright (Broken Bulbs, Tyranny of the Muse, Regular Show) is a complex, fast-paced, and unique take on the philosophical problems that plague us all.

He is the creator and writer of the comic book series Tyranny of the Muse, writer of Lake Imago, and contributor to BOOM!'s Regular Show comic book.

"though it is tempting for me to compare it to a work like Fight Club, a far more apt description would be, "Post-Fight Club." For
despite its blunt--sometimes comical, sometimes tragic--depictions of
depression, substance abuse, violence, and an absolutely crushing sense
of anomie, Korsakoff Blight is ultimately a road map to...much
sought-after enlightenment."- Val D'Orazio, Butterly Language
"a small and interesting story that's easy to read yet packs in a lot of
deep thoughts, basically David Lynch crossed with Paul Auster and
wrapped in a Road Runner cartoon..." - Jason Pettus, CCLaP
