Aside from writing comics, Dirk has also written several short films for the popular YouTube horror film series BLACKBOX TV… but 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 guy. More and more of our con-goers are continuing to discover how much they enjoy Dirk’s work and panel presentations every year, so take our word for it: Your experience here won’t be complete without stopping by Dirk Manning’s table to chat with him and become familiar with his work – especially if you’re interested in cerebral scary comics or learning about how to become a professional comic book writer/creator! Dirk lives on the Internet and can be found online at www.DirkManning.com as well as at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @dirkmanning. Cthulhu is his homeboy.
