“Write Or Wrong”
Since 2006 Dirk Manning has offered aspiring comic book writers guidance, advice, and entertainment via his inspirational/how-to column WRITE OR WRONG. A combination of practical tips and candid advice about writing for comics, networking with artists and other issues aspiring writers need to know about, WRITE OR WRONG is largely recognized in the comic book industry by professionals and fans alike as one of the most useful resources to help creators launch their careers in comics.
Due to popular demand, in October 2012 Manning released the first print collection of many of the earlier columns in a book collection titled WRITE OR WRONG: A WRITER’S GUIDE TO CREATING COMICS from Transfuzion Publishing. The book can now be purchased exclusively at Amazon.com HERE.
Originally published online at NEWSARAMA for over five years, new installments can now be read (approximately) monthly at BLEEDING COOL.
Some WRITE OR WRONG columns are still archived at NEWSARAMA HERE.
Newer editions of the column (new editions of the column go online approximately once a month) can be found at BLEEDING COOL HERE.
