Sold Out

GCYr1_coverI would have preferred to post this as early as Monday, but honestly I was so busy with the New York Comic Con before the show even started. Indeed, it felt like I was working the con the entire week leading up to it. So I never had the chance to post last week’s comic (Catch Their Attention) until yesterday. That said, a great part of the pre-show chaos involved taking requests to hold copies of the new Gentleman Cthulhu: Year One (a collection of the first year of comics)–which sold out by about mid-day on Saturday, with a day and a half left of the show!

In hindsight, I should have ordered about double the amount of copies, but it’s been rare that I’ve completely sold out of an item the first show I bring it to, and I was uncertain how Gentleman Cthulhu would do. To say the least, I’m quite happy the book sold so well and that many people continued to come up to the table and both ask about and flip through the display copy (I kept one for this purpose), especially because (though I know many people enjoy this comic) it’s still just a fun side project for me.

A Bit of an Explanation & a Surprise

So, for those of you who have been keeping up with this comic regularly, you may have noticed that in the past few months things have fallen a bit behind. Well, if you don’t keep up with my regular blog (on jmdesantis.com), then I suppose a bit of an explanation is needed. Read more… ›

Two Big Announcements from Rosarium Publishing

Rosarium_Publishing_SunTzu_quoteToday is a very special day for me and Chadhiyana (my medieval Indian assassin comic–also my main creative project). Not only has Chadhiyana #4 been given a release date of April 27th, but Rosarium Publishing (Chadhiyana’s publisher) has launched a massive crowdfunding campaign in order to reach the next level in its growth as a publisher: indiegogo.com/projects/rosarium-publishing-the-next-level (appropriately named Rosarium Publishing: The Next Level).

Lovecraftian Merchandise Now Available!

Cthulhu Taking TeaAs announced yesterday on jmdesantis.com (my main website), I have recently opened two new online stores on both Society6 and Zazzle. Amongst the designs being offered on various types of merchandise are two popular Lovecraftian artworks of mine including Cthulhu Taking Tea–the piece which inspired this very web-comic!

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog piece (you can read the full thing here), I’ve opened up both stores after much debating and after trying to figure out which services I like best. After all, I’ve heard great things about both print-on-demand stores, and each offers a few different items than the other.

For now, I’ve started out with three of my most popular works, just to test the waters a bit. In the future, I’d like to add more designs–especially relating to Gentleman Cthulhu. Read more… ›

Interview with Sequential Tart

Just yesterday, Sequential Tart (sequentialtart.com) published an interview they did with me, J. M. DeSantis, creator of Gentleman Cthulhu. Given the interview mostly concerns my other comic creation, Chadhiyana, but there is a mention of Gentleman Cthulhu at the end. You can read the interview on sequentialtart.com/article.php?id=2822. Cheers!

Get Your Free Chadhiyana #1!

I realise that the last few comics on this site have been about some shameless self-promotion, so I do apologise for the above. Normally the comic is intended to be about hilarious and ridiculous situations involving monsters (and Gentleman Cthulhu’s seemingly clueless commentary thereof). However, it is worth mentioning that my main project, Chadhiyana, is currently experiencing a great deal of attention right now, including (as the above comic mentions) a promotional giveaway of the first issue.  Read more… ›

New York Comic Con Booth 1259!

J. M. DeSantis Upcoming Event

Another year has passed and the New York Comic Con is upon us once more! For the sixth year in a row I will be making an appearance at the show, this time in the exact same spot as last year: Booth 1259 in the Small Press area! Of course, it’s long past time I got back into Artist Alley, but that’s another story. For now, I’m just happy to be participating in such a monumental pop-culture event. Read more… ›

Important Upcoming Dates

Just a friendly reminder of some important dates coming up in the next month. First, if you haven’t joined the mailing list yet, there’s still time to do so before the first newsletter goes out (either tomorrow or Thursday, the 30th or the 1st, respectively). It’s (I hope) going to be a great way to keep on top of not only Gentleman Cthulhu, but release dates, developments and other such things related to me and my work (there’s a form to join the mailing list at the bottom of this post).

Sign Up for the Mailing List

At the end of this month (or at the very latest, the beginning of next month), I will be starting up a mailing list. At this point, with Gentleman Cthulhu, my main comic series Chadhiyana (chadhiyana.com) and my weekly blog (jmdesantis.com), never mind any forthcoming publications and projects, it’s starting to become necessary to have a central means of keeping fans up-to-date. This monthly newsletter is going to be an attempt (and hopefully a successful one at that) at keeping all of my fans in the know on everything that is coming out from me. Read more… ›
