Dark Fire Press, ComiXology, and the Mummy Collection

And They Call it Mummy Love coverThanks to the establishment of Dark Fire Press (darkfirepress.com), Gentleman Cthulhu comics are now available on ComiXology.com. As of today, they’ve also added the long-awaited And They Call it Mummy Love collection to the site! You can find all three current collections listed here: comixology.com/Gentleman-Cthulhu-Emeritus-Moribus-Monstrum/comics-series/128431. Also, an IndyPlanet print version of the Mummy collection should be available soon.

While I know the present web-comic is very far behind, creating Dark Fire Press is allowing me to expand my reach with certain projects such as Gentleman Cthulhu. I’m planning to start posting new and back comics again soon, as I have all the intention in the world of continuing the web-comic for the foreseeable future. I just needed a break from both this and Chadhiyana (my other comic) to explore some new projects.  Read more… ›

Happy Holidays: I’m Still Alive!

Happy Holidays, Gentleman Cthulhu fans!

(That is, of course, if any of you are still checking this site.)

And They Call it Mummy Love: A Gentleman Cthulhu Collection coverI’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).  Read more… ›

Gentleman Cthulhu: Year One on IndyPlanet

Just one week after Chadhiyana #5’s publication (Rosarium Publishing through comiXology and Amazon), I’m officially announcing the IndyPlanet release of Gentleman Cthulhu: Year One–a collection of the first year of comics from gentlemancthulhu.com. This is the very same book that sold out before the end of the weekend at this past New York Comic Con. As such, the book will likely be on my table for a long time, but if you can’t make it to a convention I’m exhibiting at or just miss me at one, you now have the option to buy the collection online at indyplanet.us/product/143372/!

As with Chadhiyana #0 (which I self-published in 2012), Gentleman Cthulhu: Year One is available in both digital and print formats on IndyPlanet. Though originally my thought was to collect only the first year until a significant collection could be made (that is, enough comics to fill a square-bound trade), I’m planning now to release a collection every year. So, if you really love the web-comic, you’ll have these comics every year to look forward to and collect. Of course, for those who wish to continue to read them online, all of the comics will remain free on the website for your enjoyment. 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.

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… ›
