Dirk has also written short films for the horror film anthology series BLACKBOX TV (YouTube Red) and prose stories the RPG series CLOCKWORK: DOMINION (Reliquary Game Studios). Dirk always has copies of his work with him at his table – and autographs/book signings are always free! 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, as he’s a very amicable and approachable creator who’s known as one of the “must visit” creators in Artist Alley across the convention circuit. He has also quickly become one of the most groundbreaking and noteworthy comic creators on Kickstarter, with presales on the crowdfunding platform books passing $125,000, setting new records for his publishers.
Whether you’re a fan of well-executed horror or an aspiring creator looking for advice regarding how to “break-in” to the comic industry, your experience at the convention won’t be complete without stopping by Dirk Manning’s table to chat with him and become familiar with his work. When not on the road Dirk lives on the Internet and can be found online at www.DirkManning.com as well as at Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr @dirkmanning
