Check out the new Sequential Tart interview with Jackie Musto, artist for Inner Strength (Chadhiyana: Rekindled), and the upcoming Chadhiyana: In the Dwerrow Tomb and Two Birds: sequentialtart.com/article.php?id=3613.
Also, she is currently running a Kickstarter for her wonderful comic, Kay and P! Consider supporting here: kickstarter.com/projects/jackiemusto/kay-and-p-the-final-kickstarter
I recently sat down for an interview with fellow Dark Fire Press writer and creator, Jorge Medina (Wonder Duck) about the latest Chadhiyana: Rekindled comic and issues to follow it in this latest series. If I can be so bold as to say it, I feel this interview was so well conducted (and I’m really happy with how concisely I answered the questions), so please give it a read. Read more… ›
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.
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.

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… ›
As I’ve written before this year, I may be writing less blog pieces and took a break from shows, but there’s a lot happening behind the scenes (as the publications of Robert Phillips and J. M. DeSantis: The First Ten Years should already prove). But we’re nearing the end of the summer, and with the Fall comes my planned return to public appearances and shows, and just in time for that I was asked to take part in a local author event at Barnes & Noble, as well as to do a second interview with Sequential Tart. And then there are some new web-developments on the horizon, including this site and Gentleman Cthulhu. Read more… ›
“Keep checking back,” I said. “I’ll be sure to make a post here and on social media once the interview is up,” I said. Well, less than twenty-four hours after I posted that statement, Sequential Tart (sequentialtart.com) ran their interview with me. So here I am doing as I promised in yesterday’s blog post.

Halloween is only two days away! Being my favourite of all the holidays and what with my birthday only two days following that, I usually take it easy the week of Halloween (the month of October, even). I watch horror movies, read horror fiction, work on a horror story of my own and create some new horror art–typically Nosferatu being the subject matter. Unfortunately, life and Chadhiyana are keeping me a little busy for that this year, but I am managing on some level to enjoy the month of October as I’d like. That said I’m (still) working on a horror comic story for Atlas Unleashed. And speaking of comics, one of the interviews I did at New York Comic Con was finally uploaded on YouTube. Read more… ›
It’s been a while since I wrote a proper blog post. For a couple months it’s been one event after the other, and now things are finally calming down. Of course, there is the Pet-icular Poses group art show where my original art is on display through June 30th (visit studiokidsart.com for more information). I still have plenty of work to get done as well (not least of which is the Chadhiyana graphic novel). But for all intents and purposes there is little to promote for the time being. That said, I figured it was the perfect time to write a bit about what’s been going on and what’s yet to come. Read more… ›
I always enjoy doing interviews, especially at conventions. They’re usually quick, on-the-spot and taped (there’s an archaism for you), so you have to think fast. I feel I’m decent at them, though honestly, I think I could work on my delivery a bit (that camera can make you a little too self-conscious sometimes). Interviews are a great way to get exposure and to talk about your work. That said, check out this recent interview I did with SugarCayne.com at the Bronx Heroes Comic Con this past weekend. It was fun to do, so thank you SugarCayne.com for taking the time to interview me.
