About DFP

Gentleman Cthulhu: Year One cover by J. M. DeSantis Dark Fire Press is a publisher of books, comics, art books, and writing collections. It primarily focuses on original, creator-owned works and personal projects.

DFP is currently a Print-on-Demand publisher, offering their creators' books through a variety of online retailers (print books fulfilled by IngramSpark, comics by Ka-Blam).

Dark Fire Press was created in 2017 as a publishing label for J. M. DeSantis's self-published works. The focus was on the collections of his web-comic, Gentleman Cthulhu: Emeritus Moribus Monstrum, and eventually expanded into experimental works, personal projects, and works he was developing with which to approach traditional publishers.

The Day They Made Contact by Luis M. Cruz In 2018, Dark Fire Press LLC was established to expand its publishing reach, and in 2019 DFP released another seven titles and expanded from IndyPlanet to include platforms such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ComiXology, and other online sellers. By mid-2019, other creators began approaching Dark Fire Press to be published under its label, raising the number of creators and titles under DFP in 2020.

Dark Fire Press continues to look toward the future of publishing creator-owned and personal works by its growing number of creators.
