Character Appreciation Week – Day 01 – ZAHN

An associate of Fraser’s maintains that Class Comics doesn’t make “Porn Comics” but that we make “Sex Positive Comics”. I like that!  It rings true to me and resonates with my own personal mission and vision of what Class Comics is and does.  We celebrate sexuality and the natural beauty of sex.

I also think it’s a statement on the characters that populate our books.  Without them, there would be no story.  No point to the sex.  They are the fuel, the essence and very heart of our books.  If I enjoy depicting their adventures and wild sexcapades, and if you the fans and readers enjoy following them, it’s because they are endearing and can touch us all in their unique ways.  We can relate to them in our own personal ways.

So that’s what the next 7 days – Character Appreciation Week – are all about.  Each day will be in celebration of a Boytoon – or Girltoon – that I feel very passionately about. A step-by-step illustration process that essentially says “I love you” and “thanks” to these characters that have so enriched my life and make drawing “Sex Positive Comics” so very fun and fulfilling.  All of this will result in a brand new pin-up style illustration done in honor of the character in question.

This is also a “thank you” note to you guys.  Without your enthusiasm and love, these characters’ adventures would go unseen, and I’d be toiling in relative obscurity. I do what I do because I love doing it… and I love sharing it with you.

I’m kicking things off with ZAHN partly because as one of my more recent creations, his star has risen incredibly fast.  But beyond his popularity, Zahn is dear to my heart because in essence he’s the embodiment of the most enjoyable parts of my youth. Those parts  that still mean so much to me today; the sense of adventure, love of fantasy and the grand adventures of the sword and sorcery heroes of my childhood.

Zahn is a barbarian, but he’s so much more than that.  In his own book, he’s a force of nature and the driving force behind a story that has taken me quite by surprise in its appeal.  He’s powerful, very handsome and regal and incredibly sexy, in body and persona. I love writing him, I love drawing him and I can’t wait to continue his adventure.

Enjoy the Son of Winter, dear friends, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow for Day 02 of Character Appreciation Week!

Much love to all!

  1. Holly crap…clean up in isle 3! XD This rendering of Zahn is most appreciated by this fan!!! :D This is a spectacular image of him. He has this masterful look in his eyes and his cock looks ready to burst at the slightest touch! Hot! You know, I always wondered where he got that necklace and what kind of human like creature it is from. Can’t wait to see the next toon! :D

  2. Zahn is a great way to start off Character Appreciation Week. He is a fuller realization of the savage/barbarian that was the introduction for so many of us to this kind of entertainment. He can go to greater erotic lengths than the heroes of Edgar Rice Burroughs and Robert E. Howard. Both Tarzan and Conan possess tremendous sexuality, but because of the morals of the times in which they were introduced it was the elephant, or mastadon, in the room that no one was willing to mention. Zahn can be admire or feared beacause of his strength and power, but he can also be envied and coveted because of his endowment and virility. He may be a king uncrowned, but his might also comes from the sceptre that is his uncut cock. A benefit that can become a bane. The Apeman or Cimmerian could be bound spread eagle across a pagan altar to face torture and death, but Zahn must contend with the additional threat of having his own sexuality turned against him. He must endure whatever means his captors devise to bombard his brain and nervous system utilizing his own cock and balls.

  3. YUM, as usual. Zahn is definitely one of your more sexual characters, which is saying something!

    Here’s hoping one of your characters up for appreciation is Bob! :D

  4. I love Zahn! He’s my favorite character. I can’t wait for Zahn #3!!! Patrick Fillion, I have a deep admiration for you. You are a master!

  5. HA! HA! HA! Thanks so much, Matthew/Dinosaurprince. I am THRILLED you enjoyed this image of Zahn. I was pretty pleased with it, but your reaction has made me appreciate it even more. LOL! I was particularly intent on making his cock look nice and close to climax… so it’s great that you feel it looks about good to explode! LOL! XD Enjoy the rest of Character Appreciation week, dear friend. Loads of luv to ya!

    Hugz + Kisses,

  11. Trust me, I’ve long dreamed of having one or more of my OC’s playing with one of yours…probably Camili-cat or Zahn. It wouldn’t need to be Bob since the huge dick would be taken care of, lol…

  12. You know Vishis, I think you need to draw that!!! LOL! Seriously, I still drool over your wicked Bob and Deimos illustration. I’d love to see one of your OCs tackle Cam and/or Zahn in your style. That would be the definition of HAWTNESS!!!!! Something to keep in mind, perhaps? ;)

    Hugz + Kisses,
