BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #134 – Angelface is here!

Hiya Gang!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!  This morning I want to announce that Benoit Prévot’s tour de force, ANGELFACE #1 is now on sale and shipping from Class Comics.

Angelface is about Alan and Red, two friends who rob a jeweler in London and lay their hands on a small fortune.  After a wild night of lustful celebrations, Red wakes up to find Alan (also called Angelface) has taken off with the loot! Not one to let his fortunes vanish, Red follows a steamy trail of clues to a ship headed to the States!

Meanwhile Allan screws his way across the ocean, but gets blackmailed by a gangster into working a mysterious con job. They transform him into a suave aristocrat and he arrives in Manhattan looking like a million bucks… but with a dangerous game ahead of him.

Beautifully written and illustrated by French artist Benoît Prévot, Angelface is a series set in an era of prohibition, swing, speak easies and loose morals! A fantastic journey that intertwines elegance with erotica no fan of Class Comics will want to be without.

That’s the official Class Comics sales pitch for Angelface #1.  My personal impression of this book is that it is quite avant-garde.  It is an incredibly charming period piece illustrated with complete attention to all the proper details by Benoit.

With this book, you really get the sense that Benoit Prévot is a master story-teller and a master eroticatician (yup – I just made that word up!), very much concerned with giving his audience the best of both worlds.  This book excels at perfectly blending its exceptional narrative and story with all of its steamy male characters and sex scenes.

Those of you who always thought of the 20s as a period where people didn’t actually have sex will be happily surprised to find that in Angelface, EVERYONE screws everyone. The sex is HOT, the illustrations are superb and rendered in an almost classical flare, and the story is guaranteed to suck you in with ease.

I’ve had the pleasure of reading issue #2 in French, published by my pals at H&O Editions, and man, I have to tell you that Benoit weaves one crazy tale.  This is one series I can’t wait to see unfold.

So while it’s my job as part of Class Comics to tell you how cool this book is, it’s my pleasure as a fan of erotic comics to gush about just how much I love this title and Benoit’s gorgeous artwork!

If you’re looking for a great balance of story and sex in your comics, I really recommend Angelface #1!  So check it out, gang!  I’m quite sure you’ll be glad you did!  Meanwhile if you’d like to know more about Angelface and get a free preview of issue #1, check out the official Class Comics Angelface Mini Site!

More from me soon, including answers to all your recent comments!  Have a great afternoon, my friends!

Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #125 – 2 new MINI SITES from Class Comics: Angelface & Tug Harder!

Hello my friends…

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday morning so far! I have a great issue for you today! I am so pleased to announce that Fraser and I have just finished putting together 2 new mini sites for Class Comics.

The first one is for Tug Harder. Written and illustrated by Butch McLogic, Tug Harder recounts the story of an undercover photographer who works for a Gay Magazine. Tug gets a job at a pig farm where he hopes to snap a ton of candid shots of the farm hands so he can sell to his magazine. Thing is, his plan may not go off without a hitch.

Just like the Zahn mini site, this one gives you a very special sneak peek at the first issue, as well as info an all the main characters, goodies and much more!

Later this summer, Class Comics will be releasing the first issue of renowned French artist Benoit Prévot’s exquisite series, Angelface. Angelface is set in the 1920s and is lavishly painted and written by Prévot to be as authentic to the time period as possible. The men are sophisticated and gorgeous, but most of them are deeply flawed characters (just the way I like ‘em!). They are always horny and in true Class Comics tradition, this tends to land them in some serious trouble.

The Angelface mini site is now live and you can get a sneak peek at it by following this link! Meet the main characters, learn more about Benoit Prévot and his accomplishments, and get a wicked 6-page sneak peek at the first issue!

Meanwhile, if you’d like to take a look at some of Benoit’s other artwork, check out his fabulous artist site.

The mini sites seem to be quite popular with you good folks, and I am truly thrilled about that. They are so much fun to put together, and though they can be time consuming, I truly believe that they are worth the effort. They immerse you, the reader into the world of the series they are based upon, and that is a great way to help you discover the characters involved.

As I’ve said before, it’s our goal here at Class to create a mini site for all of our up coming titles. It’s part of our imminent Class Comics website redesign plan. But more on that later.

So that’s it for me for today. Have a great weekend, and enjoy these 2 new mini sites. Don’t forget to let me know what you think of them in the comments section! You know I always love to hear your opinions!

Hugz + Kisses,

Patrick XOXO
