I’ll be appearing again on Michael Grassia’s Get in Toon! on Tuesday at 8:30 EST in a group interview about Independent Comics. Watch it live or after the fact on Mike’s YouTube Channel: youtube.com/c/MichaelGrassia.
The nameless protagonist of The Tainted Ones: darkfirepress.com/comics/taintedones.php
I meant to complete this before the end of Oct, but maybe it worked out for the better this way as we’re all exhausted from last week. One more to come & I’m finishing Monsters & Myths too.

New Merchandise and Masks are now available through my growing Redbubble Store!
It’s been a long time since I wrote a proper blog post, having concentrated most of my updates on social media (follow me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook), and to a lesser extent on Patreon and my mailing list. But in truth I’ve been hard at work getting Chadhiyana ready for her return to publication, working at growing Dark Fire Press and its list of titles, by me and other authors, and putting some work into designs on my fairly new Redbubble Store.

J. M. DeSantis YouTube Interview
Tonight (20 May) I’ll be interviewed by JD Calderon at 9 pm EST on his YouTube Channel, LIVE! (Though the video will remain up afterward, in case you missed it.)
With lock-downs still in place all over the world, and the fact that I haven’t been putting out too many updates on current projects, I’m sure this interview is going to be full of news and updates on projects past, present, and future, including Chadhiyana, Gentleman Cthulhu, and my latest novel.

New from Dark Fire Press is the print, special edition version of the latest Chadhiyana short, Chadhiyana: The Call of Fire. This four-page comic is a teaser to the upcoming series of stories and issues from creator J. M. DeSantis (jmdesantis.com) and publisher Dark Fire Press (darkfirepress.com). Read more… ›
It’s taken a while to get to this point, but finally there’s a new Chadhiyana comic, a short titled Chadhiyana: The Call of Fire and it’s free to read on chadhiyana.com! And although I didn’t plan it to line up this (near) perfectly, the new Gentleman Cthulhu artwork reveal comic is up on gentlemancthulhu.com today!
As I’ve written about before, I had taken a break from both projects, but intended to come back to them. Gentleman Cthulhu began his return with new comics posting since August of this year, and Chadhiyana will return in a new series next year through (my) Dark Fire Press (darkfirepress.com). And for you Chadhiyana fans, today’s post is mostly about the upcoming series. Read more… ›
I’ve had so much going on in all directions (new books, upcoming projects, publishing as Dark Fire Press, interviews, conventions, etc) that it’s worth writing a single blog post that puts all the information out in one place. That’s exactly what this post is, and I may as well start with my new banner artwork as I return to exhibiting at conventions this week. Read more… ›
It’s a blessing and a curse that I’m not writing my blog weekly anymore. On one hand, I’m able to focus a lot more on published(able) content. On the other hand, not having to post every week means that sometimes I neglect to post anything until things build up. There’s no perfect system, I suppose, but I need to tweak the current one a bit. That said, there’s a lot to write about, so let’s get into it. Read more… ›
I know it seems impossible, but there are more publications coming from me this year. But before I get into that, a couple of site updates, and a special podcast that’s debuting in three days, I want to thank the staff at Barnes & Noble in Princeton, New Jersey for the wonderful opportunity they afforded me this past weekend during their Local Author event, in which I was talking about and signing copies of my latest book, Robert Phillips (a Lovecraftian novella centering around The Necronomicon and its author, Abdul Alhazred).
