The Daruma 2012 by Mulele Jarvis

Hello. My name is Mulele Jarvis. I am a comic book artist that has been living in Japan for the past 21 years. Dark Horse comics and DC Comics have published some of my previous work. My latest work, ELBIS, is published through DWAP Productions. You can also see my weekly web comic at

The featured image within this post is a daruma, a Japanese talisman. I draw one every year as a kind of starting point for the year’s artistic endeavors. I thought I’d share this one here as a kind of preview of the kind of art I’ll be doing on this blog. Previous darumas I’ve drawn can be found HERE, HERE and HERE.

Without giving anything away, I’ll be researching and developing a story exclusively on And once that’s all done I’ll be posting the comic in its entirety before it goes to print.

The two things I can tell you about the story are that it is a ghost story and that it is absolutely, 100% true.
