Tonight (20 May) J. M. DeSantis will be interviewed by JD Calderon at 9 pm EST on Calderon’s YouTube Channel, LIVE! (Though the video will remain up afterward, in case you missed it.)
With lock-downs still in place all over the world, and the fact that J. M. hasn’t been putting out too many updates on current projects, this interview is certain to be full of news and updates on projects past, present, and future, including Chadhiyana, Gentleman Cthulhu, and his latest in-progress novel.

Happy Holidays, Gentleman Cthulhu fans!
(That is, of course, if any of you are still checking this site.)
I’m sorry for the long absence, and if you’ve been checking my blog on jmdesantis.com or happen to be a member of my Patreon (and you’d be very informed in the latter case), you’ll know I had my reasons for taking a break.
That said, I plan to catch up entirely on this years’ comics (that is, Year 4; comic #157 through today’s #175), hopefully before the New Year. After that, I’m going to turn my attention to completing the Year 3 set (#105 – 156), and put out that collection (which will be appropriately renamed Gentleman Cthulhu: The Comics out of Time rather than Third Cheers a Charm).

Since starting my blog back at the end of 2012 (on jmdesantis.com. following the publication of the first Chadhiyana comic), I don’t think I’ve ever let so much time pass between posts. The reasons for that are many, but rather than dwell on the past, I’d like to get everyone up to speed on the new, the old, and the behind-but-catching-up (and to do so in as few words as possible).

First, thank you to the students at Vassar College for their hard work at the No Such Con this past weekend and for inviting me back. I had a great time catching up with some people I met last year–both exhibitors and attendees–and speaking on the panels about Cultural Competency and Self-Publishing respectively (and a special thanks to Danielle Draik and Emily Ree for inviting me to the latter). There were a few surprises during the weekend too, but before I get into that, I want to point out to my readers that the final days are approaching to get your name included in the And They Call it Mummy Love collection as a supporter (deadline: 28 February 2018).

Happy Valentine’s Day, Gentleman Cthulhu fans!
This year, I’ve got something special planned in honour of the day of love, and to commemorate the popular and longest running series in this two-and-a-half-year-running web-comic: the And They Call it Mummy Love series. Read more… ›
It’s Cyber Monday! And with that, I, J. M. DeSantis, creator of both Chadhiyana and Gentleman Cthulhu, am highlighting my new storefront (jmdesantis.com/shop/), commission requests (open through 31 January 2018), and my Patreon page (to support this page and other work). And wouldn’t you know, there’s even original artwork for said creations on sale through the storefront. Read more… ›
I realise it’s seemingly been a while since there was any word from me (again), both on my websites and on social media. I can assure you this absence was not planned (unlike the time I took off in the summer to recharge and reevaluate things), nor was the length of it premeditated. Rather, I was without internet access in my studio for a full two weeks—something I thought was originally only going to be a few days.
I won’t get into specifics (I still like to keep some privacy in my life), but it’s worth noting I’m back online and just in time, as there’s a new Gentleman Cthulhu collection to release, a sketchbook to finish up and print, Chadhiyana to return to, and two conventions coming up in the next three weeks.

It’s not as bad as the title makes it sound. Rather today is the final day to have your name included in the latest Gentleman Cthulhu annual Gentleman Cthulhu: Twice the Fears and Cheers (the name as it currently stand, though you also get a chance to vote on the name). Not only that, but for the first time in six years, I’m putting out a new sketchbook (a collection of artwork and including some writing), and so you can have your name included in that as well. How do you get your name into the books you ask? Well, just keep reading, as the details are below. Read more… ›
Today is an exciting day for me, though (to be honest) it’s also a bit terrifying because today I’ve officially launched my new Patreon page!
For a long time now I’ve toyed with the idea of crowdfunding, drawn by its potential to help fund personal, independent projects. As it is, personal, independent projects have been a major part of my career as a writer and artist, yet I’ve never been certain if I could carry a campaign all on my own. But then, over a year ago, I became aware of Patreon. Read more… ›
