Happy Guy Fawkes Day!

Like most Americans, I was first introduced to Guy Fawkes and the holiday surrounding his and his fellow conspirators’ attempted bombing of Parliament through the Alan Moore graphic novel and the film based upon it of the same name, V for Vendetta. Being an anglophile, I’ve done as much reading up on the holiday as I can, though I’ve never had the opportunity to celebrate it properly or even witness, first-hand, the various observances of the day. So, today’s comic is my way of acknowledging the holiday and celebrating it in my own special way. My apologies to any readers who know nothing about it. Read more… ›

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… ›

Post-NYCC: #9 – Exhausted

This week’s comic is literally all I had in me after the four-day New York Comic Con. I had planned to catch up and get ahead on some Gentleman Cthulhu comics during those occasional pockets of down time we artists experience at conventions. The problem was, there literally wasn’t a moment to breathe all weekend long; I barely had time to run to the bathroom. But that means the show was a smashing success. 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).

New York Comic Con is One Month Away

Gentleman Cthulhu Event 2015

It’s September 8th and you know what that means: it’s exactly one month to the day before the start of the 2015 New York Comic Con! It’s also six days and some odd hours before extended ticket mailing for the show closes. As in the previous few years, I be exhibiting in the small press area (I believe at the same booth as last year: 1259)–so be sure not to look for me in artist alley. That said, though I’ll be in the same spot as some small publishers, it’s not only books you can get at my booth (though, you can get books too). Read more… ›

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… ›

Happy 125th Birthday, H. P. Lovecraft!

H. P. Lovecraft, June 1934A very happy birthday to one of my greatest inspirations, weird horror writer and frequent user of the word unnameable, Howard Philips Lovecraft! In honour of this auspicious day, I have chosen to launch this new web-comic. Though, in fact, this little project has been in silent development for quite a long time now.

If you’ve seen me at a comic convention over the past few months and commented on my Cthulhu Taking Tea print, I may have said to you that I was considering making a web-comic based on the character in the piece. The truth is, I’ve been considering and developing the idea since as early as the Fall of 2014.

At the time I was working on my graphic novel, Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows, which was then publishing as a weekly web-comic (on chadhiyana.com). I had two publishers interested and was likely going to go with one of them (and eventually did—Chadhiyana #1 published last month by Rosarium Publishing). This meant the web-comic was going to cease to exist as it went on to become a standard comic. Read more… ›
