BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #86 – Class Comics goes on Xtube!

Hiya Gang…

As you know, making comics is more than just drawing and printing pretty pictures. You gotta get the word out there and promote the crap out of them! That being said, print advertising my be very effective, but nothing can beat word of mouth and the visual impact.

Last week, Charles “Zan” Christensen, writer of the up-coming Class Comics series “The Mark of Aeacus” put together a very cool promotional video for the series which he then promptly uploaded to YouTube. Zan discusses Aeacus and his thoughts on the series in an intimate and “up close and personal” way. Very cool, and very memorable!

Zan inspired Fraser and I to put together 3 clips of our own, which we uploaded to XTube for the public’s viewing pleasure. Our first 3 clips feature “In the Blink of an Eye”, “Camili-Cat” and “Captain Jung and his fellow Bounty Hunters”. Very colorful and very fun… and hopefully very effective as marketing tools! LOL!

Putting these gems together is a great deal of fun, but we are still quite new at it. We figure we will get better in time and have a few more promo videos planned for several of our other books. The music is pretty tricky to do, but you know what they say… Practice Makes Perfect! Hopefully! HA! HA! HA!

Personally, I am working on an “Art of Patrick Fillion – Portfolio video” which I plan to upload to YouTube – nothing dirty – just fun comic style art!

I know it’s not like these are “animated” or “cartoons” in the strictest sense, but they are fun pre-cursors to possible eventual animation! So take a look at the 4 existing vids and let your friends know all about them. And leave feel free to comment on them. We’d love to know what you think! Meanwhile, I will let you know the minute we post some new vids. Enjoy! ;oD

    Haha! Such cheesy music!

    Love Captain Jung in that picture, though *wolf-whistle*. It’s nice to see one of your heroes being heroic rather than in peril lol. And of course I love Flamer ^_^ I hope this promotion pays off!

    Love,
    Wabbit xx

  2. Shameless self promotion – I am all for it! Have fun and best of luck!

    Hey!!

    I was going to wait until your next post as I’ve already commented on this one, but I’m too excited and impatient to contain myself!

    I’ve finally started a blog!! Woo!!
    Hopefully it will give me the drive to keep on producing work and become more confident with it haha!

    So check it out at:
    http://wabbiworld.blogspot.com
    and that goes for anyone else who’s interested as well. It’s kinda bare at the moment but as long as everyone has faith in it I’m sure it’ll please eventually haha.

    So this is me doing my own bit of ‘shameless self-promotion’ haha! I can only hope my blog becomes as popular as yours!

    Love,
    Wabbit xx

    They might not be animated but they are absolutely fabulous. Great promos they certainly left me wanting more. I’m loving “Disco” right now ;)

  9. Fantastic clips, Patrick! I’m so jazzed to see you moving in this direction and coming up with new ways to promote your work! Big ups to you and all who helped you produce and upload this footage. :-D

  10. Hehe, these clips are awesome Patrick. Thanks for sharing, it’s always great seeing your stuff in different ways.

    Hay Patrick

    Lets hope these adverts get shown over a lot of channels to promote your work, its a good step. And one day hope to see that animated movie of your guys, that would be fantasic.

    The pic of Jung is just yummy as hell, he’s such a smooth skinned hunk, he can shot me with his pistrol any day :P

  12. Hey Patrick

    I love these video sharing sites and what a great way of promoting Class Comics. I hope it pays off. And Captain Jung is super sexy!

    Hey, Patrick…! Do you watch “Who Wants To Be A Superhero” on the Sci-fi Channel? I’m watching it now, and it REALLY reminds me of you! I bet you’d love it! There’s even one openly gay contestant. Aaand one I think is /probably/ gay. :P Just thought I’d let you know!

  14. Those were effing AMAZING, bro! Congrats! What Xtube has n the way of cartoon porn is really lacking, so it’s refreshing to see your stuff on there!

    I’m curious to know what you used to animate these… Flash?

    You know it’s only a matter of time before we see your boys animated in full glory on one of the gay cable networks!!

  15. Hey everybody…

    My sincere thanks to all of you! It’s so encouraging to read your comments and I am thrilled you all enjoyed the first 3 Class Comics videos. We have a bunch of new ones in the works, so I will be sure to post them all here when they are ready to go.

    Sorry for the short group answer today. It’s been a pretty topsy turvy week and I’m a bit short on time today. But I just wanted you all to know how much your kinds words mean to me and to Farser and we’re so pleased that you’re all enjoying what we’ve been up to…

    And can I just say an extra special THANK YOU to you all for your wonderful comments on Captain Jung. He’s such a hot and exciting character, and I am very pleased he’s getting some much deserved attention from you good folks! LOL!

    Much love to you all!
    Hugz + Kisses,
    Patrick XOXO
