BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #213 – RAPTURE #4… Behind the Scenes!

RAPTURE #4 is finally out and available from Class Comics, and I thought it would be a great deal of fun to give you good people a little behind the scenes glimpse at this very exciting book!

Why am I SO EXCITED about RAPTURE #4? Easy! It’s because this book marks three amazing CLASS COMICS firsts that are pretty damn memorable.

To begin with, the brilliant LOGAN draws ZAHN for the very first time in this issue. I was so thrilled when Logan agreed to take on a story for RAPTURE #4 that I wrote him a very special story called “The Altar of Szabarnak”. In this story, Zahn wants to communicate with the Vardan Spirit World. This leads him to meeting a strange little wizard named ZULLBA who informs him that to do this, he must commune with the mystical Altar of Szabarnak – an ancient artifact that requires Zahn’s sperm in order to come to life! Dontcha hate it when that happens?! LOL!

What’s so awesome about this story is that it permitted Logan to come up with the very unique looks of three amazing and incredibly sexy new barbarian characters; ROAN, LAKOZA and YTLA! Logan really ROCKED the design on these three Vardan Hunks, and they put Zahn through one Hell of a fuckfest!

The art in “Szabarnak” is absolutely superb, and it’s such a treat seeing the Son of Winter drawn in Logan’s style. Zahn is beautifully muscled and smooth, and more than up to the challenge of satisfying three hot and horny Barbarian spirits who want a piece of his ass. The colors Logan employed are truly beautiful as well, and give a nice “chilled” feel to the story. It’s a great piece, and I’m sure that fans will appreciate Logan’s fantastic take on Zahn and his new companions.

Secondly on RAPTURE #4, I had the chance to collaborate with an artist I have admired for a very long time. Of course I’m referring to the incredible SOTO, who illustrated a fresh new DEIMOS story I wrote for him, called “Deimos’ Inferno”.

Soto’s take on Deimos is brilliant. The Taro Demon is gruff, rugged, manly and completely hot. Soto’s art is itself beautifully moody and atmospheric, and this suits the story perfectly. In “inferno”, Deimos decides to try and take BOB by surprise by infiltrating Hell and attacking him where he least expects it… on his home turf. Naturally, not all goes Deimos’ way, and our hero’s plans are foiled by the demon HEMEC and his lackeys.

Soto created the looks for Hemec’s demonic pals and I did a truly superb job of it. The twin demons, GAUL and BILE are really wicked looking with their inversed snapped horns, tribal tats, and opposing eye-patches, while BELAGAUZ is just too monstrous for words!

I love this story because it finally shows a more submissive side to Deimos, who becomes the power bottom of the day for these four nasty demons. But don’t get too accustomed to Deimos’ submissive side… he’s soon on top of things again!

This story is wonderfully “Deimos” and I couldn’t be happier with Soto’s take on the character and the story. You’ll see for yourself just how rich and detailed this wonderful artists’ work really is.

And lastly, RAPTURE #4 features the very – and I do mean VERY (in fact I’ve received a number of very angry letters and hate mail about it) CONTROVERSIAL – Camili-Cat short story “CHANGES”, in print for the very first time. It’s a real pleasure seeing this Cam story on the printed page. I feel it’s such a turning point – a real defining chapter in his life. Seeing it in the pages of RAPTURE #4 just reminds me of how integral to the Class Comics Universe Camili-Cat really is. It’s a story I loved writing and one I truly enjoyed illustrating.

If you’re wondering WHY “Changes” is so controversial, then you don’t already know and I won’t spoil it for you. Suffice it to say that Cam gets an EXTREME new look, and some fans love it, some fans HATE IT… and probably also hate ME for making it happen… but you know, Cam needed a change… and this is a doozy!

The CONTROVERSIAL story "Camili-Cat: Changes" is in print for the very first time in the pages of Class Comics' RAPTURE #4.

On top of all of that, the wonderful HERNAN CABRERA and I once again worked together to bring Camili-Cat to colorific life in “Changes”, and RAPTURE #4 is beautifully lettered by the fabulous JOHNNY MURDOC! I tells ya, a TERRIFIC issue!

RAPTURE #4 is now shipping form Class Comics, and it’s available as a Printed Comic or as a Digital Comic, so you’re free to pick your poison. I will say this, the issue is one of my favorite installments of this series so far. I’m very pleased with and proud of all three stories. This book gave me the opportunity to work with some truly talented people, and for that I am truly grateful. This is why I make comics! LOL!

RAPTURE #4 is now available from CLASS COMICS!

Enjoy the book, my friends. It’s a WHOPPER! And stay tooned, I’m still preparing a MEGA FAN ART issue, and I’ll be posting some awesome BENT-CON photos and stuff when I get back from the Con in December.

Enjoy your weekend! SMOOCHES to all!  Patrick XOXOXO

Deimos #2: A sneak peek at the story boards! A post a day – Day 5

Oh boy-o-boy! Today I have some major sweet treats for you good people.  Take a look at these amazing story boards from Deimos #2, drawn by none other than the exceptionally gifted Logan!

Following a lead, Deimos makes his way to a sleazy downtown hotel in Gateway City. Deimos #2 storyboards by Logan.

Logan is a consummate artist who approaches each comic he works on with absolute professionalism and focus.  And Deimos is no exception!  These wickedly detailed story boards from the up-coming Deimos #2 hint at the eye candy to come and serve as a map for the final art which Logan creates based upon these sketches.

Sethan and Deimos get a little sexy time! Storyboards from Deimos #2 by Logan.

Logan has put a lot of effort into designing the look and feel of this latest issue.  The locations are superbly detailed, the characters are scorching hot and best of all, he brings my script to life in a way that I could never have myself.  I’m not selling myself short — it’s simply that Logan is a master story teller who completely immerses himself in his work!  He’s a joy to write for.

Bob screws the Hell out of some poor demon, while Azagoth wonders if now would be a good time to deliver some bad news! Deimos #2 storyboards by Logan.

I hope you enjoy this cool “behind the scenes” glimpse at Deimos #2.  The final art on the issue itself is well underway, and features a lot more of Bob, Sethan, Azagoth, a HORRIFYING new demon called Obscene and of course, that grouchy but lovable Taro Demon himself, Deimos.

Stay tooned for more info on this book, gang!  See ya tomorrow!

Hugz + kisses, Patrick XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #188 – On my drawing board – A post a day – Day 2

Boytoons Magazine #188 cover

Hello friends…

I’ve been at my drawing table for a few weeks now, and I am happy to report that my post-Holiday blues (also known as the bitch called artist block!) seems to be coming to an end.  And you know what that means… I’ve been feeling creative again.

Of late, I’ve been concentrating on Zahn #2 primarily.  Book #2 picks up a few weeks after the end of the first issue, and almost directly after the events that happened in Striptease #1. You remember… when Zahn and Jonah meet Cauldron for the first time.

Zahn and Cauldron set out to assemble a great army of Varda. An excerpt from Class Comics' up-coming Zahn #2.  Story and art by Patrick Fillion, colors by Golden Key.

So Zahn decides that he needs to assemble an army to protect Varda from the evil metal beasts that threaten it.  Naturally, he wants only but the best on this army of his, and Cauldron knows where they might find four men who would make perfect additions to this army of Varda.  So off they go in search of these fellow gay barbarians.

Jonah still doesn’t seem to trust Cauldron, while Zahn is more than happy to fuck both of them… A LOT!  And I do mean a lot!  LOL!

I am sort of making it a personal/creative challenge for myself to write in and draw as much mansex as I possibly can fit in this issue.  Hey, I know what you guys like.  But don’t worry, because as I always say, sex scenes don’t have to come at the expense of a good story, and I have written an issue that really deepens the mysteries set in motion in issue #1… I even answer a few of the questions posed in book #1 along the way.

Meanwhile, Space Cadet’s first issue is nearing completion.  I wrote it and Bob, a new artist to Class Comics, illustrated it.  Bob’s job is done (and what a fantastic job he’s done!!) and the 1st issue is absolutely gorgeous.  Now I just have to complete the cover for it.  I love Space Cadet so much as a character, and even though I didn’t draw the interior art, I wanted to do the covers so that I could still be involved in the art in at least a small way.

Space Cadet’s 2-issue mini series is set in Ordovica, the realm of the satyrs.  If you recall the events that happened in Rapture #3, Vallan asked Space Cadet for help against the evil Baron Von Phallus.  Eager to really test out his new powers, Space Cadet accepted the plea for help.  But few things ever go as planned when you’re a sexy gay superhero it seems, and when Space Cadet arrives in Ordovica, he’s in for a BIG surprise.

Bob’s art is truly lovely and does Space Cadet great justice.  As for me, it’s such a HUGE thrill to have the opportunity to feature Class Comics’ most popular and prominent African American character in his very own series.  I think you guys will really love it.  I’ll devote an issue of BTM to Space Cadet #1 and give you a sneak peek at Bob’s art shortly.

Also on my drawing table is Stephane’s Funhouse of Fornication #1.  Though I have yet to draw Stephane’s parts of this book, I have drawn an awful lot of pages that feature Spot… you know, my sexy dog boy.  He’s on the cover of today’s issue… and he gets officially introduced in this book, and I am having a blast exploring this very fun character.

While I have yet to take a real chunk out of this book, it’s cool to see it finally come together after having it in the back of my head for such a long time.

In a nutshell, these are my big projects.  I will admit that I am also already working on what will potentially become Boytoon Adventures #2.  At this time I’m focusing on a Deimos story called “the Spell”.  Speaking of Deimos, Logan’s work on Deimos #2 is INCREDIBLE!!!  I will be sharing some of that with all of you very soon as well.

And what kind of writer/artist would I be if I didn’t have a few other projects/ideas on the go in the background as well?  Well, maybe one that would actually release projects more quickly, but certainly not one who would feel as creatively fulfilled as this one!  LOL!

More from me soon, my friends!
Hugz + kisses,
Patrick XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #167 – Porky #3 is coming to Class Comics!

boytoons-magazine-167-cover

Hiya Gang!

Okay, can I tell you how jazzed I am about Porky #3? And not just as the publisher, either…!  First and foremost, I am a HUGE fan of Logan and his work, and the Porky series has really turned into an incredibly engrossing super raunchy, intelligently intricate super hero drama.

porky3-02

A lot of stuff is explained in Porky #3 – which goes to press this week along with Sworn #1!!! We learn a little bit more about the evil Controller and what his plans for Porky and his family tree.  Boy, it sucks to be you if you’re part of this little clan of white trashers!

Logan expertly ties events from issue #1 and #2 back to the plot of issue #3, and Porky’s transformation into a super-muscled, super powered being is revealed.

porky3-01

Porky’s dad, Bruce is finally released from Prison… but he soon wishes he’d stayed there!  The poor guy just can’t get a break, and no sooner is he out and about that he falls into the clutches of the Controller.

Meanwhile, Porky’s delicious uncle, Mark has an unfortunate confrontation with that shitty red-neck bastard cop, Mc Cormick.  To say it goes badly for Mark is the understatement of the year!!!

porky3-04

I don’t want to give too much away, but lemme just say I barely touched the tip of the iceberg.  This issue is the tightest and the most exciting in the series so far.  It’s also the most sex-packed, and holy crap, is the sex ever insanely hot!!! He has filled this book with steamy man-sex, and has also expertly managed to weave a brilliant story.  This is a testament to Logan’s talent!

porky3-03

In honor of the release of Porky #3, the team and I have created an official Porky: the series mini site.  As with all our other mini sites, you’ll find a ton of character info, some great goodies, and best of all, a raunchy 5-page preview of Porky #3.  You guys get to see the mini site ahead of anyone else, since we haven’t yet launched it officially.

porky3-06

Now I have some very important news to share with all of you, and this directly impacts Porky #3 and Sworn #1.  Class Comics wants to show our fans our appreciation and help everyone out in these hard times of economic crisis… so we have SLASHED the cover price on these two books from $9.00 to $7.99!!! It’s our way of saying thanks for being devoted fans!  So be sure to quench your Porky fever by snapping this one up, and give Sworn a try while you’re at it.  It’s a terrific new series!

In closing, I want to tell you that Logan has officially launched the latest version of his amazing artist site, so be sure to check it out.  The man is not only supremely talented, but he’s also incredibly prolific, and the site is packed with tons and tons of great goodies and eye candy!

porky3-05

So stay tooned, folks, ‘cause I’ll be letting you know the minute Porky #3 and Sworn #1 go on sale!  Plus, coming up I’ll be talking about more wicked new titles from Class, such as greatly anticipated The Initiation #2, Captain Eclipse #1, Space Cadet #1  and Crash Course #1, to name just a few. See ya then!

Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO
