Deadmen Ink Publishing

Booth 639

My name is Ken Johnson and I’m a Writer and comic creator originating from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I have built a following and name for myself and my company, Deadmen Ink Productions, as not only an independent content creator, but reaching new heights in academic nerd content. Over the last several years, I have created the five book series “The Man Who Watched Batman”, a series analyzing the entirety of the 1990’s show “Batman The animated series”(now expanding into “Batman Beyond” and “Superman: The Animated Series”). The books tackle the entire show episode by episode, scene by scene, and even line by line or its 122 episode run. This series has gone on to sell several hundred copies both online and at conventions.

In the world of Comic books, I’ve released 2 issues of my Comic book series “Corpse Corp.” Corpse Corp. is a high concept slasher comic made in an Homage to the horror Comics and movies of the 80’s and 90’s. Also by the time the convention comes around, my newest Dark Fantasy comic “The Trials of Beatrice” will have released. Deadmen Ink Productions has been a staple of this convention tabling at nearly every single year since the very beginning.
