It all starts with a story. In the fall of 2007, Rebecca Kirkland was working as an independent producer of Film, TV, and Theatre in Hollywood, California. At the same time, in the mountains of Tennessee, Dwight was a full-time comic writer, college student, and single dad. One day, as Rebecca was browsing the new titles at her local comic book shop, Meltdown Comics, she spotted the graphic novel, Dead Men Tell No Tales, by writer, Dwight L. MacPherson. A phone call to the publisher to inquire about property rights led to a phone call with the writer himself, and, fast forward two years to May of 2009, they were married. Rebecca became a wife and mother to 3 young boys on the same day. After their marriage, Dwight went on to win DC Comics' Zuda webcomic competition, adapt American McGee's Grimm for IDW, and write a couple of stories for Gene Simmons of KISS. But they wanted something more... something that was their own. And so, after much thought, Dwight and Rebecca decided to launch Hocus Pocus Comics. We are passionate about the value of comic books in the classroom and would love to help educators discover this rich and unique resource to add to their classroom curriculum and libraries.
