Chadhiyana #3 & Upcoming Event

Chadhiyana #3 News

The New Year has only just begun, and already there are some big things on the horizon. Within just a short period of time, the long-awaited third issue of Chadhiyana is going to be released, and I’ll be making an appearance at another comic book event. So get your calendars out. It’s time to start marking down a few important dates.  Read more… ›

First and Last

Chadhiyana #2 Release, Chadhiyana #1 Free!

Today is the last day on which comiXology.com is offering Chadhiyana #1 for free (use the promo code chadpod at checkout: comixology.com/Chadhiyana-1/digital-comic/239164). It’s also the official release date for Chadhiyana #2, even though comiXology listed the comic a full week early as part of the promotion. Both issues have been getting some good reviews, so if you haven’t given my medieval Indian fantasy series a try yet, now is your (last) chance to try issue 1 for free. Read more… ›

Early Chadhiyana #2 Release!

Chadhiyana #2 Now Available!

The Chadhiyana #2 release date is fast approaching–only five days hence–and yet, there’s no reason to wait a minute longer, because comiXology released the book yesterday! But that’s not all! They also gave Chadhiyana another mention in their podcast (The comiXologist), Sequential Tart gave issue 2 a 10/10 review, and I have an forthcoming interview with them. More, comiXology is offering issue 1 for free for a limited time!  Read more… ›

The Official Chadhiyana #2 Release Date

Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows News

I’m sure there are many of you who have been waiting for this. And what with a two week break from social media and posts about a mailing list at the end of the month, the anticipation has probably been mounting. That said, I do want to prepare some of you for a little disappointment, but I promise you issue 2 is coming and there’s a reason why it won’t be exactly when you (I assume) or I were expecting. Plus, I’m going to give you a preview of the amazing painted cover by yours truly. Read more… ›

ComiXology, the comiXologist and Conventions

Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows News

Chadhiyana #1 was officially been out for a week (through Rosarium Publishing), but there’s still more to come. Late last week, the first issue of Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows was added to comiXology.com and even earned a mention on the comiXologist post-San Diego Comic-Con podcast! More, this weekend begins a three-week-straight convention tour for Chadhiyana and myself. Read more… ›

Of course, if you follow this blog and my social media posts, you know that the book has been out for ten days already (on IndyPlanet.com and Amazon.com). Hopefully you’ve already purchased, read and enjoyed it. If you haven’t, today’s blog post is especially for you. Read more… ›

Just One Week Away

Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows News

This week and next week, my blog posts are coming a bit early (I usually post new blogs on Wednesday on jmdesantis.com and Tuesday on chadhiyana.com–though the latter may officially change), as next Monday, July 13th, is the “scheduled” release date for issue one of Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows. I put scheduled in quotations, because if you’ve been keeping up with the recent Chadhiyana news, you know that my publisher (Rosarium Publishing) is actually ahead of schedule with the book’s release.

Breaking Chadhiyana News

Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows News

Sometimes Christmas comes early, and this year (for me) it has. Little did I know what was going to happen when I woke up today and got in the studio, but you know it’s got to be something big if I’m posting a second blog entry in the same week. A little over an hour ago I got some surprising and exciting news from Chadhiyana’s publisher, Rosarium Publishing… Read more… ›

First Chadhiyana Review and Release Date

Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows News

If you don’t follow me on social media (then you should be!), you probably missed two big announcements in the past couple of weeks. First and foremost, the first issue of my graphic novel series, Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows, has been given the tentative release date of July 13, 2015 by Rosarium Publishing (pending no delays). As written in the past, the publisher opted to release the book digitally first in single issues. You’ll be able to find them on Comixology every other month (and–fingers crossed–Amazon?). I know it’s a bit of a wait, but really it’s just around the corner. That said, the book was also recently reviewed, for the first time, by Colored Books for Colored Folks. Honestly, if nothing I’ve said in the past has sold you on it, I think this review will. Read more… ›

The BIG News

J. M. DeSantis Big News

I could not think of a more appropriate title for today’s blog post. After all, I’ve kept many of you in suspense for months with claims of forthcoming “big news”. Some of you have even reached out to me saying you could barely take another teasing statement about it. If it’s become unbearable, I do apologise; things took longer than expected (as they often do). That said, you can breathe easy at last because today is the day. Here is what you have been waiting for. Read more… ›
