My name is Daniel Gastelum. I once interrupted a meeting of monstrous cats, sitting in a perfect circle, outside of my local grocery store. It was the fifth strangest thing I saw that night.

If you enjoy magic, comic books, ghost stories, podcasts, 90s alternative rock, pop culture, bizarre tales, and grand adventures, consider helping me out on Patreon! Every penny raised will go towards printing books, securing venues, buying/replacing/upgrading equipment, as well as paying staff well enough to keep the lights on.

Some of the perks you can get as a patron include early access to our comics and podcast episodes, pre-sale tickets, a discounted store for buying digital and physical releases, and seeing our Patreon exclusive feed.

Here's what I'm working on. 

COMICS: Right now, I am publishing twice weekly pages of Aria: A Cyberpunk Mystery. Created with William Montalvo and Grant Cederquist, this is my love letter to pulp detectives, retro future, and Blade Runner. You can read the first page here, and read our latest updates on Wednesday and Friday.

PODCAST: I have a podcast with my best friend, Jason Williams. Together we talk about pop-culture (he’s slowly, and poorly, explaining Game of Thrones to me), bizarre tales (reports on the elusive skunk ape, and a monkey hanged for being a French spy), and grand adventures (events like San Diego Comic Con). You can listen to the latest episodes of D+J BFF on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Soundcloud, and YouTube every Monday.

MAGIC: When I'm not doing card tricks at your local bar, there's a good chance that I'm haunting a house. I'm a psychic entertainer. I tell ghost stories for a living. Considering I've been doing magic as a job for 13 years, I'd like to get down to brass tacks: Whether it’s at a card table, on stage, or in a dark room summoning ghosts, everything I perform has a story. Magic with nothing to say is just a card trick; watched, googled, and revealed. You deserve more than that.

You can see me perform at events such as Anime Expo, Wasteland Weekend, Anime California, and at my monthly variety show, Not Acceptable.
