BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #159 – Treasures at the Y!

boytoons-magazine-159-cover

Hello dear friends…

I hope you have all been well!  I really want to apologize for not posting anything new in such a long time!  As you probably guessed, my work at Class Comics has kept me unusually busy in the past few weeks.  But I am NOT complaining, because the reason I’ve been so busy is… Naked Justice!!!

Yup – everyone’s favorite heroic redhead is really getting the star treatment.  To begin with, his new book, NAKED JUSTICE: BEGINNINGS #1 is just around the corner.  That’s meant a lot of work preparing for the book, including creating a mini-site for the new series and other cool promo stuff.  Basically, we want this Naked Justice series to do as well as possible, so the team and I have been giving it our all.  I’ll have more on Naked Justice’s new book very soon.

Meanwhile, I want to talk about the Y!Gallery.  More specifically, I’d like to tell you about all the terrific Class Comics fan art that’s been posted since the creation of Club Class there and the wonderful people and artists I’ve recently met there.

I have always said one of my most favorite things about this job is that it permits me to interact with so many talented folks.  I love artists!!! And I love to see how other artist draw my Boytoons.

You’ll notice that on today’s cover, I’m featuring a SUPERB illustration of Camili-Cat getting a heavenly blow job by none other than my favorite Darkstalker character, Rikuo.  I almost fell off my chair when I saw this image for the first time!  It was created by a fantastic artist who goes by the name of Neo 123!  This boy’s work is incredible, and his take on Cam is purrfection.

There are of course a lot of other wonderful artists at the Y! who’ve taken time out of their schedules to draw Class Comics characters, and it is always such an incredible joy to see their interpretations.   I’ve posted just a few of the fan arts I’m referring to here today to give you a little taste!

My pal Gninrom even created a special character for me called Maxie Mouse.  He’s the perfect partner for Camili-Cat!  LOL!  What’s cool is that Gninrom drew Maxie in my illustrative style — it’s amazing how close he got to it!  I could very well be an endangered species!  HA! HA! HA!

But there is someone else at the Y! Gallery that I want to talk about here today.  His name is Dinosaurprince, and he truly ROCKS!  Why?  Well, he isn’t an artist himself, but what makes him so special is his absolutely love and unconditional support of the up and coming artists on the Y!  He has commissioned countless artists to draw his visions ( a good many of them include Rikuo! Yummmm!).  In fact, he is the one who commissioned Neo to draw Cam and Rikuo on the beach.

I am always impressed by people who believe in young talent and who go out of their way to encourage.  Dinosaurprince is truly an incredible asset to the gay erotic arts community because at the end of the day, he is there to not only encourage artists, but to support them by commissioning them to do what they love best.

Dinosaurprince, you truly are a class act!  And everything you do for the gay erotic arts community is greatly appreciated.  We need more folks like you!!! LOL!

If you haven’t checked out the Y! Gallery yet, I encourage you to do so.  I must confess that since my first encounter with them went so poorly, I expected little this time around.  But what I have found is a community that is there to encourage and network and that is always welcoming of new talent and fans of the genre.  I’ve been happily surprised by this, and since re-joining I’ve made some really wonderful acquaintances and connections.

In the next few days, I have big plans for Boytoons Magazine – including a face lift and some really great forthcoming issues.  I’ve delayed posting my issue about the Class Comics line up of titles for 2009 until I had a lot of art and goodies to share with you.  This year is gonna be crazy good for Class – think Logan’s Porky #3, Boytoon Adventures #1, Sworn #1, Angelface #2, the Initiation #2, Felinoids #3 and SOOOOOO much more – not to mention the new Naked Justice: Beginnings with breathtaking art by the amazing Jacob Mott which will leave you begging for more!

All that is coming up soon!  Stay tooned, dear friends.

Hugz + Kisses,

Rapture #3 NOW SHIPPING!

Good morning my friends.  I am so  pleased to announce that RAPTURE #3 is now shipping!  This is a whopper of an issue! It’s so BIG in fact, that we had to add four extra pages to fit all of the excitement between the covers.

The book opens with “The Great Satyr Caper Part 2?. Written and illustrated by yours truly, this story leads Space Cadet into a direction he would ever have imagined.  Plus it gives you more insight into Naked Justice and how he is dealing with the whole Ghostboy disappearance thing.  Let’s just say he’s been better.

Next up is a fresh new Deimos story entitled “The Coin”. Written by me and illustrated by Spubba the Mad.  This is really the final prequel to the Deimos series.  It finds Deimos receiving a mysterious coin that holds some pretty crazy big magic.  Course he doesn’t know that yet… and he doesn’t know what it all means, but you can bet he’s going to find out.

And finally, THIS the one fans have been waiting for… “Walk in my shoes” is the highly anticipated climax to the Ghostboy/Ghostgirl story arc. I wrote it and Eric Mars drew it.  I won’t give anything away about this one but it’s monumental in the life of Ghostboy and drops some SERIOUS hints about his future with Naked Justice.

I tells ya — this issue will send shockwaves throughout the Class Comics Universe! LOL! You can get your copy here!

I know how much you guys like Mini Sites, so you’ll be happy to learn that we’ve completed one for this book too.  To learn more about Rapture #3 and to enjoy some preview pages, wallpapers and other goodies, check out the official Rapture #3 Mini Site!

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #143 – STRIPTEASE is here!

Hiya Gang…

I hope everyone has had a great week.  I have some really great news this morning.  My new book, Striptease is back from the printer and now on sale on the Class Comics website.  The cool thing about this one is that is was not supposed to be out until next year, but we had everything finished up in time and figured we’d put it out before Christmas.

In this industry, it’s pretty rare to have stuff done ahead of time!  I think for me, it’s definitely a first!  LOL!

So what the heck is Striptease?  Well, it’s a collection of the one-page mini comic strips I’ve created over the years.  You will have seen some of them in the adult section of my website, but I created a whole bunch of new ones for this book.  There’s a bunch of new stuff in this.


The comic stars a lot of my Boytoons.  Camili-Cat, Zahn, Locus, Lanor and Space Cadet are featured prominently, but there are also some new faces.  Cauldron, today’s cover Boytoon is one of those new faces.  You see, Striptease is a light-hearted fun, with lots of humor and sex… but I wanted it to have some good substance as well, so I created a 3-part Zahn #2 prequel for the book.


That’s where you’ll meet Cauldron, who is similar to Zahn in that he too is an elemental.  Pay close attention to Jonah’s reaction to Cauldron.  I’m dropping some MAJOR hints as to what is really going on in Varda.

You’ll also get to see Dominion and Devilhound in comic book format for the first time.  I’ve drawn them a few times over the years, and even written short fiction about Devilhound, but this is the first time these Boytoons actually appear in a comic.


Feels to me like Striptease has been a long, LONG time in the making, and in some ways it has.  Some of the strips in it date back to 2001 and it’s such a great joy for me to see them all collected together in one book.  Mostly, I enjoyed working on Striptease for the humor.  You people know me, and you know I like the dramatic in most of my stories.  Humor feels good once in a while and is a nice break from the way I typically like to write.


Also I wanted to let you know that Fraser and I just finished the official Striptease Mini Site.  It’s now live for you guys to check out.  My favorite part about this mini site is the character bio section.  It was a blast to put together.  PLUS, there are 4 brand new wallpaper designs for you guys in the goodies section.  I hope you will enjoy them.  They’re my way of saying thanks for your constant support and encouragement.  You guys are all MAJORLY appreciated! :-)

Meanwhile, for those of you who prefer to get your Class Comics through your local comic shop, Striptease is also available through the Diamond Previews Adult catalog.  You can pre-order it now from your fave shop (STRIPTEASE DCD ITEM: DEC08 3877 ISBN: 978-1-897102-42-8)

I’ll be back here very soon with some new artwork for you guys, a huge Boytoon Adventures #1 preview as well as reviews of some really cool new gay comics I’ve just gotten my hands on.

Thanks again for everything, my friends!
Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO
