Thank You, Inbeon Con!

J. M. DeSantis Spiderman sketch coverIt’s been a summer of conventions (compared to what I’m used to): three in a row, in three different states. With Inbeon Con: Summer Edition this past weekend, my public appearances have ended until the New York Comic Con in October (though I am debating adding another show or two onto my schedule, before the end of the year). That said, Inbeon Con was a spectacular event, and I’m very glad my friend Eric Hutchison (owner of Inbeon Studios and host of the event) convinced me to do it.

Like a lot of shows I’ve been doing this year, Inbeon Con was much smaller than shows like New York Comic Con (well, really, what show isn’t smaller than NYCC?) or even Boston Comic Con. Though, I’m finding sometimes the smaller shows turn out to be a bigger success than the larger ones, especially one day shows as they tend to be the most intimate between the attendees and the exhibitors and there’s less competition at the show.

Thank You, Boston!

J. M. DeSantis Boston Comic Con 2015 table

It’s Monday morning (Tuesday for you, reader), and I’m back in the studio again for a week before I’m off to yet another convention. This Saturday is the Inbeon Con: Summer Edition (inbeoncon.com), and it will be my last con until New York Comic Con in October. (Again, sorry folks, I won’t be able to make Baltimore Comic-Con because of a wedding I’m in that weekend.) But before all of that, I wanted to thank everyone who attended the Boston Comic Con and helped make this such a successful show! Read more… ›

One Down, Two to Go

Upcoming J. M. DeSantis Event

As a child growing up in New Jersey, the Mennen Arena was this vaguely referred to place where the WWE (then the WWF) would occasionally hold a house show. I never went there as a kid, but somehow I never forgot the name. So when the opportunity came up to attend an event there this past weekend, the little kid in me got just a little curious again. However, it wasn’t Bret Hart or Shawn Michaels headlining the event but rather names like Greg Hildebrant, Neal Adams, Mark McKenna and yours truly, J. M. DeSantis (well, maybe I’m not a headliner yet, but I’m hoping my time will come). 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… ›

New Banner Art

In just twelve days, Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows issue one is scheduled to release through Rosarium Publishing (and again, pray there are no delays). It will be a fresh chance for new readers to be brought to the series and a chance for some of Chadhiyana’s older fans to relive the story as it began unfolding for over a year here on chadhiyana.com. With that and a series of three conventions in a row coming up toward the end of this month, I’ve been hard at work on preparing issues two and three and creating new artwork for my standing banner for conventions appearances–and Chadhiyana (of course) is included on the piece.

The BIG News

J. M. DeSantis Big News

reposted today from jmdesantis.com

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… ›

Changes Made

reposted today from jmdesantis.com

If you missed my post last Thursday on Facebook, Twitter and Google+, I mentioned that there was a certain document of interest which was placed in my e-mail last week. That particular document is the harbinger of the big news I’ve had coming for a long time. The end is nigh. And with that, some changes have been made in preparation for its coming. Read more… ›

It’s Almost Here…

reposted today from jmdesantis.com

The wait is almost over, folks. I’ve gotten word from the powers that be that I should be seeing something official from them within the week. That means the reveal of that BIG news is finally (almost) here. That said, everything is about a month behind where I was hoping it would be at this point, so rather than tease you more, I thought I’d reveal a little bit about what exactly has been going on in the past two months, behind the scenes.

More Hints at the Coming Chadhiyana News

Things have been a tad delayed concerning the forthcoming big news. I had hoped something would have been made official already, but sometimes things can get pushed back a bit. That said, I didn’t want my Chadhiyana fans to be left wondering why no pages have been posted since late December and what with no further word about the future of Chadhiyana. After all, I’ve said this big news concerns her very much. So, with that in mind, I give you a preview and perhaps an even bigger hint at the nature of said news. Read more… ›
