Gentleman Cthulhu: Year One & Merchandise

In the past month I’ve spend a decent amount of time (on my blog on jmdesantis.com) highlighting my online store (through Zazzle.com) though I haven’t taken the time to highlight the fact that more than one third of the roughly 100 items available on the store feature artwork from Gentleman Cthulhu–including three designs featuring the tentacled gentleman himself. More, as promised, Gentleman Cthulhu: Year One (the collection of the first year of GC comics which sold out at this year’s New York Comic Con) is finally going to be available to order online!

If you haven’t visited and bookmarked my online store yet, you can find it zazzle.com/jmdesantis. As stated, it lists about 100 items right now (with more to come in the New Year) a number of designs, six of which are from the Gentleman Cthulhu web-comic. Besides Gentleman Cthulhu, you can also find the “flowers” design from the popular And They Call it Mummy Love series and both panels from the second comic about a vampyre about to bite a woman’s neck (the punch line of which I won’t spoil).

Not Feeling Very Funny Lately

In case it hasn’t been noted, the three latest Gentleman Cthulhu comics (including this week’s Heil to the Chief) have had a somewhat darker tone–darker than the already dark humour of the comic. Certainly more sarcastic. Some also may also have noticed that the comics have been a little slower in posting. (I plan to catch up soon, by the way.) I suppose the trouble is I’m just finding it a little hard to be funny lately. Read more… ›

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… ›

Five Years Ago…

Goddess_Sand_banner

It was five years ago this month (July 2011) that I began preparing for my second New York Comic Con appearance. I had decided beforehand to dedicate the entire summer to getting new work ready. This included new prints, my first (and, to date, only) sketchbook (for sale, that is) and a collapsible banner to draw people to my table. Amongst the pieces I created that summer were an unused cover idea I had wanted to submit to Planet Lovecraft Magazine (before it closed its doors) of Cthulhu sitting in an armchair in Victorian attire, reading a copy of the magazine and an acrylic painting of a nameless Indian female warrior.
