Back Again

J. M. DeSantis Blog Post

I’ve only been off from writing my blog for a week, and yet it feels like forever. So please excuse me as I write off some of the rust. Though I’ve been writing every day, I’m suddenly stumped with the prospect of having to write a blog piece. So things may move in a sort of stream-of-consciousness sort of way. But, after all, that’s the benefits of writing a blog. It doesn’t have to be about anything really (though, the best blogs are about something).

Speaking of which, it is November, a time when men either don’t shave or decide to grow out a moustache (No-Shave-Novemeber and Movember, respectively). If you are of the moustache sort, then please give a look to my Handlebar Moustache Guide which I wrote over six blog pieces in honor of Movember last year. It’s still the most popular series of posts on my website and can certainly help you if you’re planning to take your moustaching to the next level.

As for new things coming from me, Sequential Tart (sequentialtart.com) is going to be running an interview I did with them back in October. Most of the questions asked were about Chadhiyana, which is perfect timing considering the recent release of Chadhiyana #2. (If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, you can find it on comiXology.com, PeepGameComix.com and Amazon.com.) I’ll be sure to make a post here and on social media once the interview is up, so keep checking back.

Speaking of Chadhiyana, the artwork for issue #3 is nearly complete. I’m very excited for this next issue’s release (hopefully in Decemeber). For all of those that were reading the In the Company of Shadows storyline when it was publishing as a web-comic (on chadhiyana.com), Chadhiyana #2 completes the publication of the web-comic’s content (though, there’s still a lot more to go in this story). Chadhiyana #3 will feature all new content that has never been seen before. So, it’s very exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time to be publishing something new after almost a year’s time–even if it’s be re-issued and the audience has been expanded. Still, I’m very much looking forward to it, and hopefully you are too.

That said, and as relates to both comics and handlebar moustaches, if you like bizarrely humorous monster comics (who doesn’t?) and H. P. Lovecraft, you may enjoy my other comic, Gentleman Cthulhu: Emeritus Moribus Monstrum, which publishes weekly on gentlemancthulhu.com. It’s very different from my Chadhiyana work, but that was sort of the point when I started it. There are already a little over ten comics up for your reading pleasure, and the best part is, you don’t need to have been reading from the beginning to understand what’s going on. Read them in any order you like! But, hopefully, you’ll give it a go.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for this week. My apologies it was a bit redundant for some of you. I promise to have something more novel for next week. But maybe I’ve some new readers who didn’t know about any of this. One can only hope. Until next week.

Cheers!
