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!

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… ›

#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… ›

In Memory of David Bowie

I saved the David Bowie dedication comic for last not because his death was any less important or felt, but perhaps (and you may judge me misguided for this) because I felt David Bowie’s death was like to get the most attention of all of last month’s celebrity deaths, and my small voice did not need to be added to the noise. That said, I did not wish to go without honouring him, and certainly Bowie’s career made him a prime candidate to be included in a Gentleman Cthulhu. Read more… ›
