This coming Saturday, December 20th I’ll be ending my MONSTER 24-signing in 18 Consecutive Weeks tour in support of TALES OF MR. RHEE: “Karmageddon” at both Packrat Comics locations.

I’ll be doing that by signing at the Packrat Comics — Marysville location from 11AM ’til 2 PM, and then at the Packrat Comics Hilliard location from 3PM ’til 7PM.

I’ve been saying all long that I’m going to be throwing a big ol’ party in Hilliard to end the tour, and to that end I’ve invited fellow creators (and all around swell people) Victor Dandridge and Eric Palicki to join me at the signing. (And, no, I’m not inviting Victor just so he can present me with a championship belt… honest!)

Well, leave it to Jamie and Teresa to up the ante on the party by making, for the first time ever, Dirk Manning T-shirts.

Yes… really.

Yes... Dirk Manning T-shirts are now a thing.

Yes… Dirk Manning T-shirts are now a thing, as evidenced by stylish PACKRAT COMICS co-owner, part-time-model and T-shirt designer Jamie.

Rumor has it that the shirts will even be GLOW IN THE DARK.

If you want one of these shirts, be sure to c’mon by the Hilliard location Packrat Comics this Saturday between 3:00 and 7:00 for the signing party, ya’ hear?

All of this being said, I can’t believe we now live in a world where this is a thing… but at the same time I’m happy we do.

I hope to see a lot of you this Saturday!

Your friend in comics,

UPDATE (12-15-14): Jamie went in and tweaked he T-shirt design a bit, so HERE is the final design of the shirts that will be made available at Packrat Comics (Hilliard) this Saturday!
