Dirk Manning is a writer-creator. His many works include the comic series Tales of Mr. Rhee and Nightmare World, the ongoing Write or Wrong: A Writer's Guide to Creating Comics, stories for other comics such as Love Stories to Die For and The Legend of Oz: The Wicked West and much more. He also has written short films for Blackbox TV, the horror film series on YouTube. He's one busy guy.
Somehow he manages to squeeze in many comic cons every year. That's where I first met Dirk.
Aside from his talent, Dirk is a great guest at comic cons. He is very personable and will eagerly discuss virtually any topic.
Don't wait until you have a chance, make time and go watch The Hunger on Blackbox TV on YouTube. It is about 8 minutes of delightful terror. It's the best 8 minutes of entertainment I have had in a while.
Dirk's other works are just as entertaining. The guy just needs to be a little busier!
He doesn't always wear a top hat and scarf, but he usually can only be seen from the eyes up. You can learn more about Dirk, including his appearance schedule at DirkManning.com and by following Dirk Manning on Facebook and twitter.
