More About the Author
Don't let Dirk's penchant for writing horror comics and his tongue-in-cheek publicity photo with the black hat and scarf fool you into thinking that he offers anything less than gripping, emotional, thought-provoking stories based in the horror and speculative fiction comic genres. If you're looking for graphic novels that you'll re-read again and again, congratulations, you've just found the author you've been looking for all along.
Dirk Manning hails from Hell, Michigan, is rarely there, as he continuously does book signings and panel presentations at comicbook conventions across the country. As such, he primarily lives on the Internet, where can be found online at www.DirkManning.com as well as at Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr @dirkmanning. Cthulhu is his homeboy.

Long time fans of "Nightmare World" are rewarded with a glimpse of the "big picture" in this collection, as Manning includes a prose piece ("The Long Hard Road Out of Hell")giving us the POV of one of the primary actors in the grand scheme. The piece actually details the thought process going on behind one of MY favorite pages in the series ("Wrath" from "MINE"). I was pretty sure I knew what was going on overall before reading it, but now have a better grasp of the meta arc thanks to the piece.
The art is fantastic throughout the book. Each story features a different artist, giving each its own look and vibe. I'm a big fan of Josh Ross' work on "Nightmare World", and you get the classic "MINE" in this collection, centered on the seven deadly sins. Manning writes to his individual artists' strengths, and in turn the artists deliver strong performances. Anthony Peruzzo is perfect for the violent chaos of "Break Stuff", Mark Winters' tragic samurai kick ass in "Bitter Wine", and Len O'Grady provides the period look that suits the grim "The Same Deep Water As You", just to highlight a few.Read more ›
Dirk's books are always fun, always creepy, always surprising. I can't recommend his stuff highly enough.
