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 New Year 2019!

Gentleman Cthulhu news

Gentleman CthulhuEven though the latest comic posted over a week ago, it’s worth wishing everyone a Happy New Year again, especially because there’s some Gentleman Cthulhu and other Lovecraftian news today on Gentleman Cthulhu creator J. M. DeSantis’s website today. Namely, 2019 is going to be largely a Lovecraft-themed year, including Gentleman Cthulhu and even some new site art (such as the images seen on this site right now; and there’s more yet to be shown).

So check jmdesantis.com today and throughout 2019 for continued Lovecraftian project news and releases.

Cheers!

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.

#25 – The Primordial One

Exactly eighty-eight years ago this month, “The Call of Cthulhu” was published in Weird Tales Magazine, and so the world was introduced to the most famous of the Great Old Ones and what would later be termed the Cthulhu Mythos was born. Of course, I don’t know the exact date of publication of the February 1928 issue of Weird Tales, but it is enough that this particular post and comic are coming in the month it was published. More, it is the 25th of the month, and this comic stands as the 25th on the site (well, 28th, really, but it’s the 25th by number). So, it’s something of a milestone comic as well. 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… ›
