Thanks 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, 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).

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… ›
Another year and another Baltimore Comic-Con. It’s one of the shows I’ve done for the longest length of time (in, I believe, about eight years of exhibiting at conventions—since the Fall of 2009), and it’s one of my favourites. Baltimore is extremely artist friendly (just look at the size of its Artist Alley), and I’ve always found the show to be well run and the staff quite friendly (though, admittedly, I’ve never been to a show where the latter wasn’t true).

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… ›
EDIT: Deadline has been extended to July 31, 2017! Now extended to August 31, 2017! (final extention)
The second collection of Gentleman Cthulhu comics (from gentlemancthulhu.com) is releasing late this summer and you can have your name included in the next volume! During the month of June, anyone who becomes a supporter of my Patreon page (at $3.00 or above) will have their name listed in Gentleman Cthulhu: Year Two (working title) and receive an exclusive, Patreon-only digital copy of the collection before it goes to print (print copies are available for $5.00 supporters and above). Just click the link below to become a supporter!
Though, if you’re interested in more information before you decide (including non-Patreon support), read on. Read more… ›
