DIRK MANNING is best known as the writer/creator of comic series such as TALES OF MR. RHEE (Devil’s Due Publishing) and NIGHTMARE WORLD (Image Comics/Shadowline). Dirk is also the author of the ongoing inspirational column/book collection WRITE OR WRONG: A WRITER'S GUIDE TO CREATING COMICS (Caliber/Bleeding Cool). More of Dirk’s gripping and exciting stories can be read in comic titles such as DIA DE LOS MUERTOS and LOVE STORIES TO DIE FOR (Image Comics/Shadowline) and THE LEGEND OF OZ: THE WICKED WEST (Aspen/Big Dog Ink) among various other anthologies.
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.
