Welcome! I’m Justin Sane – filmmaker, screenwriter, puppeteer and comics creator.

My published comic works include writing and illustrating such titles as the Victorian horror romance HEART OF A CORPSE and the anthology series BLOODY DREADFUL, as well as writing duties on the social satire THE WOODLAND WELFARE MANIFESTO and the ongoing all-ages comedy series CHARLEY & HUMPHREY, both illustrated by John Hageman.

As a filmmaker, I’ve written and directed several short films, one of which toured with Spike & Mike’s Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation. As a screenwriter, I penned “The Night Hag”, one of the four segments of BLOODMANIA, the final film by “The Godfather of Gore”, Herschell Gordon Lewis.

Please, take a look around and have a cup of tea (cup of tea not guaranteed.)

  • Charley & Humphrey Live!

    In case you were unaware, my co-conspirator John Hageman (artist on The Woodland Welfare Manifesto) and I have been putting together a comic book entitled CHARLEY & HUMPHREY, based on the television characters created by Pat McCormick! 

    These two rascals – a cantankerous horse and his sweetly naive, but well-meaning, bulldog sidekick, were staples of Bay Area TV for decades, before retiring some 30-odd years ago. With Pat’s blessing, it is our privilege to reintroduce these beloved icons back to the world in CHARLEY & HUMPHREY – illustrated by John Hageman and written by myself! 

    Here’s a sneak peek at what’s to come in Issue #1!

  • BLOODY DREADFUL: BOOK 3 now on Amazon!

    The third book in my Victorian horror series BLOODY DREADFUL series is now on Amazon!

    “To Your Health” – In the midst of a night of drunken debauchery, Brown, an uncouth ruffian-for-hire, is approached by the enigmatic, metal-armed Mr. Orlack, who offers the thug a job most lucrative… and even more distasteful. But when the full scope of the operation is revealed, will Brown get more, or less, than he bargained for?
