Who is Dirk Manning?
DIRK MANNING is best known as the writer/creator of comic series such as TALES OF MR. RHEE (Devil’s Due) and NIGHTMARE WORLD (Image Comics/Shadowline), as well as the author of the ongoing inspirational column/book collection WRITE OR WRONG: A WRITER’S GUIDE TO CREATING COMICS (Caliber/Bleeding Cool).
If you’ve heard of him, that’s probably why.
That being said, Dirk has also written stories for other comics too, including LOVE STORIES TO DIE FOR (Image Comics/Shadowline), Riley Rossmo’s DIA DE LOS MUERTOS, and THE LEGEND OF OZ: THE WICKED WEST (Big Dog Ink) among various other anthologies.
Dirk has also written several short films for the popular YouTube horror film series BLACKBOX TV, including “The Hunger,“ in which Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite plays the villain.
Dirk frequents the comic convention circuit, especially in the Midwestern section of the United States, and when not on the road he lives on the Internet and can be found online on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @dirkmanning.
Cthulhu is his homeboy… and no, he doesn’t wear the scarf and top hat in real life.*
*When alone in his office writing, though? Every damn time.
