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.)

    BLOODY DREADFUL SERIES SYNOPSIS
    In the foggy shadows of Victorian England, a wisecracking Grave Robber utilizes his special gift to see the past lives of the bodies he unearths, and reveals what lurid and shocking tales lie just under the surface in this horror anthology written and illustrated by Justin Sane (Heart of a Corpse).
    ISSUE #1 – “What Lies Ahead, Part One”
    When newly-wealthy Beatrice and her loving husband Harland come into contact with a mysterious fortune-telling automaton at the local fair, their future is revealed as horrifying indeed.

    After Beatrice is disfigured in the tragic accident the automaton predicted, Harland has her committed to the cold halls of Adolphus Asylum – but is there more than concern for mental health at work in this startling conclusion?

    That’s right, friends – Your Humble Narrator has taken to the magic of the continuous periodical and has begun work on the horror anthology series BLOODY DREADFUL, coming to you soon from your friends at SLG Publishing!

Along for the ride is his easily-frightened Dog, who cowers at the lurid and shocking tales the cemetery provides.
