Dynamite Entertainment pays homage to Class Comics?

Hey Gang…

Here’s a fun little noggin’ scratcher for ya! A few days ago, a fan sent me an email with an attachment of the Dynamite Entertainment “LORD OF THE JUNGLE” #3 cover by the fantastic Lucio Parrillo.  I immediately understood why.  There are some striking similarities between Parrillo’s Lord of the Jungle cover and Class Comics’ ZAHN #2 cover.  The pose, the setting, even the color choices — all are strikingly similar.  Check it out!

Is the cover of Dynamite Entertainment's LORD OF THE JUNGLE #3 an homage to Class Comics' ZAHN #2 cover?

For the record, Zahn #2 came out  two years ahead of Lord of the Jungle #3.  Zahn #2 was released August 24, 2010. Lord of the Jungle #3 was released April 11, 2012.

I choose to see this as one of two things.  Either it’s a complete coincidence that these 2 covers are so alike… or it’s a wonderful homage to Class Comics on Dynamite’s and Parrillo’s part. Either way, the I think both covers are totally HOT and pretty darn awesome! LOL!

But you decide! :D

Hugz + kisses, Patrick XOXOX

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

Character Appreciation Week – Day 07 – GROUP ROUNDUP!

Character Appreciation Week - Group Roundup - 1280 x 1024

Well Gang, it’s been a heck of a week! Welcome to day 7, the final day of Character Appreciation Week.  As promised, here’s a group shot of all 6 characters I drew for this fabulous little event.  I’ve assembled them together for you as wallpaper designs for your computer screens.  They’re available in standard and widescreen formats.

While putting these 6 new pin-ups together has been a lot of work, it’s also been a ton of fun, and you can bet this will not be the last time I do a Character Appreciation marathon.  But I had better get back to my regular Class Comics work for the next little while if you want to see more new books by yours truly come out this year!  LOL! XD

I also wanted to tell you all how much I’ve appreciated all your fantastic comments and all the Facebook “LIKES” (I LOVE those!!!). It’s really been rewarding reading from you and seeing how much you enjoyed this past week’s offerings.  So again, a million “thank yous” for your infectious enthusiasm and kind support.  You guys and gals totally ROCK in my book!

Enjoy the wallpaper and I’ll see you all again very shortly!

Much love to all!

Character Appreciation Week – Day 01 – ZAHN

Zahn the Son of Winter. Art by Patrick Fillion.

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!

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #204 – The Christmas Issue!

My goodness!  Is it really that time of year again?  LOL!  Yup!  The Holidays are here once again.  Normally, I am all aglow with Christmas Spirit… but this year, I’ve hardly had 2 seconds to even realize that Christmas is back!   Fraser and I are moving.  Yup!  You don’t often hear of folks moving during the Holiday Season, but I assure you, it does happen.  Come January, we’re getting new digs.

Normally, I do a big “Top 10 Holiday Must List” for the BTM Christmas issue, but since I’m in such a wacky state of mind this year, I thought I would simply offer up my Christmas 2010 drawing and revisit past Holiday illustrations as fun computer screen wallpaper designs. Rather than draw something festively raunchy, I thought it would be nice to go with a nice, serene ensemble piece. I hope you enjoy my Class Comics Christmas Choir Boys.  I sure wouldn’t mind seeing them caroling at my door!  LOL!

I’m also posting an illustration of my pal Leon’s characters, Amron and Sabell.  I penciled the image for Leon this past summer, and he inked and colored it beautifully and surprised me with the finished piece.  Given the spirit in which this image came together, I think it makes a lovely Holiday addition to this issue.  For more beautiful art by Leon de Leon, check out his DeviantArt page right here!

I do love Christmas, and although this year is a rather unusual one, at least Fraser and I will have a few days off to celebrate the Holidays with my folks at their home.  That will make it seem a bit more normal to me… and it’ll prepare me for all the packing and upheaval that January will undoubtedly bring.

Season’s Greetings to all of you, dear friends.  I wish you all the best the Holidays have to offer! Love, Peace, Joy, and Health to you all!

Holiday Hugz + Candy Cane Kisses,
Patrick XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #201 – The Gift of Art!

Hello my friends…

It’s been a while since I last posted.  It’s been quite a busy September.  I’ve been working like a madman on LOCUS #1, and you’ll be glad to learn that the book is officially HALF done. Yup, I’m twelve completely penciled and inked pages in, and boy-o-boy, I am really stoked about this one.

But enough about Locus for now — today, I want to share some terrific artwork with you. It was my birthday in August, and a bunch of my friends and fans got together to create some exceptionally beautiful birthday art gifts for me.  Many of them arrived via the wonderful Dinosaurprince, while others came from colleagues and pals, such as the amazing Eric Mars (who is currently hard at work drawing SPOT and the ANI-MALES #1, written by yours truly! I’ll have more on that subject for you shortly!)

Spot getting it on with Imanno! So many Class Comics fans dream about this particular team-up, now made reality by the amazing Eric Mars.

This stunning illustration of Zahn was drawn by the wonderful Aneros, based upon a concept by Dinosaurprince.

This time Aneros drew Incubus, the sexy son of Diablo!

I was so moved by all of these gorgeous art gifts.  You guys know how much I ADORE fan art, so needless to say, these were the perfect gifts for the boy who loves to see how other artists interpret his characters.

While some of these beautiful pieces weren’t strictly sent as birthday gifts to me, they did arrive around the time of my birthday, so I thought it would be nice to show them off here as well.

The wickedly talented JOTTO decided to give Ghostboy a gift this year, and designed him a sexy new costume!

A truly magnificent illustration of Zahn getting off, courtesy of the amazing Porkchopz-r-us!

Lucky Locus meets the gorgeous Jedi, Kit Fisto! Way to use the force, dude! Wicked art by Fallen based on a concept by Dinosaurprince.

And speaking of Kit, check out this adorable Chibi version of him by the lovely Demona.

We all know Cam loves Basketball. This very sexy illustration of a younger Cam comes form the fertile imagination of Dinosaurprince and was drawn by a very talented young artist named Karulox.

SUH-WEEET! The incredible Ink-B drew me a super sexy, electrifying male version of STORM!!! AWESOME!!

Here's anotehr superb pic from Fallen. This time he's created a rendition of Meezok from Zahn #2. Love those Priests of Ajul!

This beautiful illustration of the sultry Space Cadet and his hung-like-a-horse pal, Strider is brought to us by the fabulous Dinosaurprince and the incredible Maduinshorn.

Spot arrests Dinosaurprince's sexy boxer, Joey. So THAT's what those sticks are for! LOL! A gorgeous piece of art courtesy of Dinosaurprince and the incredibly talented Leon de Leon!

And speaking of Leon, get a load of this HOT HOT HOT pic of Diablo and a delicious Birthday cake with creamy filling! Leon apparently wanted to try the Bryce Peters/Boytoon Adventures style of art since he first saw the book, and this is the SUPERB result!

And now, the sexy variant, featuring the cocks of Locus and Mako Finn! Which candle would you BLOW first? HA! HA! HA!

Enjoy my friends. I will try to post on a more regular basis… but you all know what I need, don’t you?  Yup.  More hours in my days!  HA! HA! HA!

Love to you all, and thanks so very much to all of the wonderful artists who took the time to create these superb drawings for me!  You guys ROCK!

Hugz + kisses,
Patrick XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #200 – Celebrating 200 issues, and ZAHN #2!

HOLY CRAP! 200 issues of Boytoons Magazine! And even more postings to this Blog than I can actually count. WAH-HOO!!! Honestly, I never thought I’d stick with Blogging this long, but you know what, I am really glad I did.

Over the past four years I’ve had the opportunity to share some really cool stuff with all of you. We’ve discovered new artists together. We’ve enjoyed beautiful and erotic artwork together. We’ve laughed, and we’ve “seriously” discussed. I’ve certainly appreciated sharing my projects with all of you and showing off my latest works for your viewing pleasure. In a nutshell, it’s been a lot of fun.

How nice that the release of Zahn #2 should coincide with the 200th issue of Boytoons Magazine! I was DYING to put that image of Zahn spreading his muscular legs for us on the cover, because in many ways, it not only captures the essence of Zahn #2, but it also perfectly embodies what Boytoons Magazine is all about: Sexy, hung male cartoons, turning us on and entertaining us.

You will notice that Zahn #2 (as well as the recently released Naked Justice: Beginnings #2) is actually available as both a printed and a digital edition. I was that eager to share the book with all of you good people. Also I’ve come to understand that there is a vast majority of you that are digital clients, and it’s not right to make you wait. So you have your choice of formats.

Class Comics' ZAHN #2 now shipping!

I thought long and hard about what to talk about for the 200th issue of my Blog. It’s a big achievement after all. In the end, I decided that Zahn #2 was what SHOULD be discussed. I’ve been hard at work on this book for such a long time now, and you’ve all been so enthusiastic and supportive all the way during my creative process… it just felt right. I also sort of feel that Zahn is no longer an “infant title”. It’s officially a series now, with 2 issues to its name, and a third one – yup already – in the planning stages. I felt like celebrating that.

Zahn and Jonah pose for the back cover of Class Comics' ZAHN #2.

You might be interested to know that Zahn as a series actually gave me back my joy of drawing erotic comics. The truth is that before coming up with Zahn, I was worried that my work was getting a bit stale. I wanted a new challenge, something to really sink my creative teeth into. By that I mean, I wanted to create something with a really captivating story and narrative to it. Something that had brains, not just cock! I needed to see if I was still capable of doing this as an artist.

Step by Step: A page from ZAHN #2, from pencils to inks to colors. Art by Patrick Fillion. Colors by Golden Key.

Whether folks agree with me on this or not is their own personal right, but my feeling is that I managed to accomplish this goal with Zahn. And not only that – but Zahn has sort of renewed my inspiration and interest in writing story-rich, hard core erotic comics.

I wanna thank Zahn for helping me do that. And I wanna thank you guys for being so supportive and for making Zahn one of your fave Class Comics heroes. I think it’s only fair to say that your enthusiasm and love for the character have definitely fueled my own appreciation of him.

Well – Zahn #2 is done, and I have already started scripting out the third issue. The poop really hit the fan in issue #2, and I can’t wait to show you what comes next. If you do pick up Zahn #2, (and I HOPE you do! LOL!) I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. Your comments are always very important to me.

The poop really hits the fan for Zahn and his pals in ZAHN #2!

As for Boytoons Magazine… you guys have been really great and super supportive and I’ve appreciated you more than words can say. Believe it or not, after 200 issues, I still have a bunch of stuff to say and a ton of goodies to share with you. Stay tooned, dear friends… and again, many thanks to all of you!

Hugz + kisses,
Patrick XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #196 – FIRST LOOK at 3 AWESOME Class Comics titles!

Hello my friends…

You know, in life it’s very important to focus on the good stuff, and put the negative things aside. So, I choose to get over the fact that the Big Class Comics Summer line-up has been slightly delayed due to unforeseen events at press, and to focus instead on the 3 MAJORLY HUGE up-coming titles: Zahn #2, Deimos #2 and Naked Justice: Beginnings #2.

Seriously, this couldn’t be a more MASSIVE line-up of books.  Considering that these are all highly anticipated issues, I think I speak for everyone when I say it’ll be amazing to FINALLY see these suckers in print.


Deimos #2 is drawn by the incredible Logan, and written by yours truly, and it’s a fantastic follow-up to the first issue of the series. It’s got a lot of cool twists and surprises, and believe it or not, mister dick-the-size-of-a-school-bus himself, Bob even gets a SEX-SCENE all to himself! Yes, Logan and I are twisted… but in the very best of ways, I assure you!  HA! HA! HA!  Get your FIRST LOOK at the wicked Deimos #2 on the official Class Comics website.


Naked Justice: Beginnings #2 has a lot of people talking! People can’t get enough of the amazing Jacob Mott’s incredible art, and I’ve prepared some really fun surprises for you in this issue.  NJ meets THE villain that could end his new career as England’s most celebrated superhero… and a new UBER arch-nemesis with past ties to NJ rears his nasty, evil head!  Oh, and did I mention that this one is PACKED with sex, sex, SEX! You know I listen to you guys… you asked for it, and Jacob and I put it in the comic!  You can get your FIRST LOOK at the superb NJB2 over at the Class Comics website.

And last, but not least, is Zahn #2.  Boys and Girls, I gotta tell you, I am really proud of this one.  It’s been a while in the making, but in the end, I think it came together beautifully.  I teamed up with Golden Key on the colors for this issue, and he’s done a magnificent job of bringing the Son of Winter and his pals to life.  Man, you could almost reach into the pages and caress them. YUMMAH! LOL!  If you check out the FIRST LOOK at Zahn #2 over at the Class Comics website, you’ll also get the opportunity to read the FIRST FOUR PAGES of ZAHN #2 for FREE!

So, printing delays aside, I believe that good things come to those who wait.  It won’t be too much longer now, folks – I promise.  Meanwhile, I’ll keep you all posted on the official release dates for these three books as soon as I get them.

In other news, if you haven’t had the chance to do so yet, I invite you all to check out the wicked-fun Q & A that artist/Blogger extraordinaire JEZZA SMILEZ has done with yours truly.  He asked me some really fun questions, and all 3 parts of the interview are now live on his Blog!  Read it all right here!

Enjoy the FIRST LOOKS guys and gals, and by all means, let us know what you think of these up-coming titles.  You can comment on the Class Comics website, or right here if you like. We always love to hear from you, and though it sometimes takes us a while to respond, we always try to do so!

More from me shortly!
Hugz + kisses,
Patrick XOXO
