Nightmare World's Dirk Manning to debut new horror web-comic.

PORTLAND, OR – 6 MAY 2011 – After raising the hairs on the back of our necks with his web-comic-turned-graphic novel trilogy NIGHTMARE WORLD, author Dirk Manning is bringing new tales of horror to Shadowline's revamped and re-launched website and web-comic stable at

TALES OF MR. RHEE by Dirk Manning will debut on May 10 in coordination with the launch of Shadowline’s new website, a new incarnation of the site that hosted his debut comic series NIGHTMARE WORLD for over two years.

“We felt it was time to give our web-site a complete overhaul, making it easier to navigate and more user friendly,” says Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino. “Web-designer, D.C. McQueen did a fabulous job and Dirk’s new series seemed the perfect fit for a renewed Shadowline web presence.”

Manning will not only be returning to horror with TALES OF MR. RHEE, but also to the same dark universe he originally unleashed on readers in his NIGHTMARE WORLD trilogy. “TALES OF MR. RHEE is a bit darker than its predecessor, and we’re taking a very noir approach to horror this time as we follow the exploits of a cryptic paranormal trouble-shooter trying to survive and thrive in a post-Armageddon/Rapture world.”

TALES OF MR. RHEE will feature art by Joss Ross, colors by Austin McKinley and lettering by Jim Reddington, all NIGHTMARE WORLD alumni.

“As we gear up for the release of the third and final NIGHTMARE WORLD print collection this coming October,” says Manning, “We knew we fans were already hungry for more intelligent and satisfying horror comics to read on the web, and we’re here to deliver.”

TALES OF MR. RHEE will update with a new page of content every Tuesday and Thursday.

NIGHTMARE WORLD Volume One: “Thirteen Tales of Terror” and NIGHTMARE WORLD Volume Two: “Leave the Light On” are both available at comic shops and book vendors nationwide. NIGHTMARE WORLD Volume Three: “Demon Days” will be released by Shadowline Comics this October.
