Not a myth! Not an imaginary story! As we enter the fall convention touring cycle the new printings of TALES OF MR. RHEE Volume 1: “Procreation (of the Wicked)” and TALES OF MR. RHEE Volume 2: “Karmageddon” will be available at my table!
While supplies last, I will also have a RHEE-ly limited number of Blank Sketch Cover editions of both TPBs, too! Gave your favorite artist create a custom cover for your book, or have me write a mini flash-fiction style story on it — making it a truly one-of-a-kind collectible!
(Keep in mind, RHEEv2 won’t be available in stores for a few months, so if you want a copy of the TPB, come get one from me of Devil’s Due Publishing at a convention or e-mail me and we can make that happen.)
Also, this is a “last call” on THE LEGEND OF OZ: THE WICKED WEST Vol. 4 TPB collection (which is The Wizard of Oz in the wild west, and my origin story of the Flying Monkeys), as I have a VERY limited amount of these books left. I recently procured the last copies in circulation from Big Dog Ink, and once they’re gone, they’re GONE until the reprinted edition is released by Aspen Comics… but that will be over a year and a half away… so plan accordingly — especially if you want one of these last first-print editions.
Ditto for THEN IT WAS DARK, the anthology of real-life ghost stories by featuring an eight-page story written by me and illustrated by Sires Jan Black. I was able to sweet-talk Peppermint Monster Press into releasing the last copies of this book into circulation to my clutches as well, but they won’t be around long, my friends.
(For those of you keeping track at home, that means by Halloween FOUR graphic novel collections I’ve written (or have had stories published in) during the last two years will have completely sold-out of their very generous print-runs. (DIA DE LOS MUERTOS from Image Comics, TALES OF MR. RHEE Volume 1 from Devil’s Due, THE LEGEND OF OZ: THE WICKED WEST Volume 4 from Big Dog Ink, and THEN IT WAS DARK from Peppermint Monster Press) Remember that the next time someone tries to tell you that horror comics don’t sell… and count yourself as lucky if you have any of these books!)
As always, I look forward to seeing many of you on the road this month, and/or stay in touch via any of the above-listed social media platforms or, if you’re brave enough, The F(r)iends of Dirk Manning Support Group!
Let’s talk soon!
Your friend in comics,
