Hello spooky Trick or Treaters!

It’s Halloween again, admittedly, one of my favorite times of year. Every October, I look forward to putting together my Halloween top 10 list for my spooktacular Halloween BTM issue… but this year, I thought I might do a little something different. I invite you all to celebrate the Halloween spirit with me!


A few weeks back, my good pal Dinosaurprince reminded me of my love of Classic Horror comics and magazines, such as Eerie, Terror Tales and of course, Witches’ Tales! Seems he stumbled upon a wonderful video over on You Tube that he was kind enough to send my way. The video in question actually takes illustrations from the covers of some of those very Classic Horror magazines and animates it – brilliantly I might add – to the tune of the Johnson-Smith Novelty Company “Horror Record”. This is a fantastic trip down memory lane, and I have to say that for me, it was a great way to kick off this year’s Halloween season. Check this out. It’s well worth sitting through the entire thing.

Some of us remember those old black and white magazines that scared the poop out of us as kids. My parents were quite clear: I wast NOT supposed to have copies of these magazines. I didn’t care! Like most kids, I had them anyway, secretly hiding them under my mattress and waiting until bedtime to read them. And then, the nightmares began! LOL! Of course as I got older, the Horror magazines under my mattress were replaced by porno magazines, but these Classic Horror gems always held a very special palace in my heart.

Classic Horror magazine covers! FRIGHTENING STUFF!

I couldn’t wait to share this year’s Halloween issue cover with you! It’s a liberal reinterpretation of the “Witches’ Tales” March 1972 cover. I replaced the helpless damsel with a helpless – and less clothed – young hunk. I employed some artistic license with the vampire and werewolf/hunchback characters to come up with this deliciously horrific and evil cover concoction. Yes, it’s violent… yes it’s frightening! Yes… it’s HALLOWEEN!

Being an adult now (most of the time at any rate), it also occurred to me that the covers to these Classic Horror magazines regularly perpetrated bloody violence against cowering, helpless women. So those of you who may find this year’s Halloween issue cover a tad… I dunno… “OUCH”… should keep in mind that sometimes, a role reversal is fair game. HA! HA! HA!

Thank you to Dinosaurprince for sending this link to me and for reminding me that these now rare and cherished magazines were a huge part of my Halloween dreams as a kid.

This year's BOYTOONS MAGAZINE HALLOWEEN issue cover was inspired by the cover of WITCHES' TALES, March 1972 issue cover.


It doesn’t have to be Halloween for me to get excited about Zombies. They are my favorite fictional (fictional up to this point, anyhow… you just never know the way the world is going! Mwah-ha! Ha!) monsters and thanks to their recent comeback, now they even star in television’s number 1 show. Of course I am referring to AMC’s fantastic WALKING DEAD! Season 2 just started up, so be sure to tune in.

I love Zombies and seek them out in books, movies and video games like some rabid freak.  But can Zombies be sexy! Ewwww… I kinda don’t think so… and yet, BEHOLD the brand new ZOMBIE DILDO, fresh… or not so fresh… from the freaky minds of the Fleshlight folks! What can I tell you, there is something undeniably desirable about this rotted, decomposing, undead member. I swear, I want one only to keep it on my desk in my studio… because I dunno if I could actually bear the thought of uhm, playing with it. LOL!

The Fleshligh freaks "Zombie Dildo"! Get your decomposing member today!

The Fleshlight folks have thought of everything, and also offer up a lovely rotten Zombie vagina Fleshlight for those of you preferring the undead of the female gender! The sculpting on these things is brilliant, and actually incredibly artistic. They’re fantastic… and fantastically CREEPY!!! :D  The Zombie Dildo is part of the “Fleshlight Freaks” line or horrific dills, which also features an alien, drac, Frankenstein and cyborg model, all equally alluringly creepy!

If you still need proof that Zombies can be sexy, then have a look at this hunky walker, beautifully created, and attentively (and morbidly :D) detailed by the lovely and talented Caravaggia. Hey… don’t feel weird if you pop wood looking at this stud… you won’t be the first to do so. Erm… or so I’m told!

"Speeerrrm!" Is there such a thing as a Sexy Zombie? You be the judge! Art by Caravaggia.


Nothing scares the crud out of you more than a truly well crafted Horror Novel, and I LIVE to read these things, especially around Halloween. I just finished reading an incredible book entitled “OUTPOST” by Adam Baker, and I literally could not put it down. And believe me, if I get bored at any point during a book, to the fringes it goes, unfinished and forgotten. I almost cried when I finished Outpost… like saying goodbye to a great friend, that’s how sad I was that I’d finished it so quickly! LOL!

Any book that opens with the line… “Jane woke, stretched, and decided to kill herself” is coming home with me! OUTPOST is about the end of the world, and Baker’s spin on the demise of mankind is like nothing I’ve ever read before. I am a HUGE fan of post-apocalyptic horror novels… so believe me when I say, I’ve read a ton and this one is FRESH!

“They took the job to escape the world. They didn’t expect the world to end. Kasker Rampart: a derelict refinery platform moored in the Arctic Ocean. A skeleton crew of fifteen fight boredom and despair as they wait for a relief ship to take them home. But the world beyond their frozen wasteland has gone to hell. Cities lie ravaged by a global pandemic. One by one TV channels die, replaced by silent wavebands. The Rampart crew are marooned. They must survive the long Arctic winter, then make their way home alone. They battle starvation and hypothermia, unaware that the deadly contagion that has devastated the world is heading their way…”

"OUTPOST" written by Adam Baker. One of the most thrilling Horror books I've ever read!

What’s so bloody magnificent about this book is that Baker’s writing style is as stark and bold as the story he’s telling. I LOVE THIS MAN’S WRITING! You know how some authors are in love with the sound of their own pens? Not Baker. He gets to the point. Beautifully and skillfully so, without pretension. He writes for his reader, and his characters are superbly flawed, and yet undeniably real. You can’t help but to put yourself in their snowboots!

Fans of John Carpenter’s “The Thing” and of Zombie apocalypses (though Zombies aren’t what’s going on in this creatively-fresh page turner), READ THIS BOOK! If you love a compelling and frightening read that deals with the end of times, you will love “Outpost”. Mr. baker, if you read this, please oh please write more books soon! I believe I’m quite addicted to your writing!


Getting into the Halloween spirit doesn’t just mean buying spooky books, decaying dildos or watching scary movies. In fact, one of my favorite Halloween activities is touring Halloween attractions. Fraser and I decided this year that we would go to the infamous DUNBAR HAUNTED HOUSE in Vancouver. All proceeds from the attraction are donated to local charities, and believe me when I tell you that the organizers of this event go ALL OUT and pull no punches!

The 7th Annual Dunbar Haunted House! Great, spooky fun for adult trick or treaters!

We met our 4 friends for dinner at a restaurant called “Transylvania”!!! I KID YOU NOT! How’s that for a Halloween theme. After dinner we headed to the warehouse district where the Halloween Haunted House attraction was set up. The line-up wasn’t too bad (as it was still several days before Halloween), and actually a lot of fun anyway, because there were zombies and killer clowns stalking people in the line!  I got a photo with a particularly gruesome zombie, and I don’t mind telling you, it’s a HORRIBLE photo of yours truly, so I must really love you guys to post this here! LOL! Special thanks to my lovely friend Maggie for snapping this hideous photo of me! Can you feel my fear, folks… or my many chins?!?! YIKES! LOL!

This could possibly be the very WORST photo of me, EVER... but what the Hell, I'm in the Halloween spirit so I choose to scare you with it! HA! HA! HA! And my Zombie pal was AMAZING!

The attraction itself was a blast. This year, it seemed that demented clowns were a big part of their theme (hence why I’m including my fan art of Shivers from the movie Fear of Clowns in this post!).

Shivers the Clown from the wicked film "Fear of Clowns"! Fan Art by Patrick Fillion.

Anyway, back to the haunted house… I don’t mind telling you I was the bravest of us 6! My friends Isabelle and Mickael practically wet themselves and kept screaming like 3 year old girls, but in their defense, it was all rather frightening. My poor Fraser screamed himself hoarse! LOL! Everything was super well set up… movie-quality props and the owner went all out. On top of things, you never knew what was not real, and what was actually a person underneath the makeup, ready to jump out at you and freak the crap out of you. A particularly disgusting chainsaw maniac chased us down a corridor… it was AWESOME! This place was “no children allowed” on account of how scary it was… So believe me when I tell you the level of horror was truly TOP NOTCH!

If you get the opportunity to check out a Halloween attraction in your area, I highly recommend it. As adults, we can’t really trick or treat any more, but we can still be big kids at heart, and these hunted house attractions are the perfect way to have a great time getting into the spirit of things!


Of course one of my favorite things about the Halloween season is all the sexy artwork it inspires. Creators of homo erotic art let their imaginations run wild around this time of year, and the results are perfectly spooky eye candy for all to feast upon!

Take a look at Cray‘s delicious werewolf hunk, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. I love this image! So festive and sexy and HAWT! Imagine running into that gorgeous creature of the night on your way to a Halloween party! YUMMY! :D Beautiful work, Cray! Thanks so much for treating us to this hunky wolfboy!

A super sexy Werewolf hunk created by the very-talented Cray!

If you head on over to Dinosaurprince’s Kingdom, you’ll feast upon a whole slew of sexy Halloween-themed artwork featuring some of his studliest creations as illustrated by a veritable army of artists. In fact, Belvadar, my favorite of Dinosaurprince’s boys is heavily featured this year. He’s such a sexy character, I couldn’t help myself last year… I HAD to draw him myself!

Yours truly gets very inspired around Halloween. You may remember how I introduced Class Comics fans to JACKO THE HALLOWEENER last year? He’s back this year again, and this time he’s giving Ghostboy a Halloween night to remember.

This fun little animation created by a pirate... And I'm not talking about his Halloween costume, either!

Normally this STRIPSHOW episode would be released with the Class Comics Halloween newsletter, but I couldn’t wait for that. I had to share it with you today!


However you choose to celebrate Halloween, I wish you all a wonderfully memorable one. I hope you’ve enjoyed this year’s Halloween issue of BOYTOONS MAGAZINE, and I leave you tonight with a batch of wallpaper designs featuring this year’s cover artwork as well as some of my past Halloween artwork! Enjoy, dear friends, and Happy Halloween to you all!

Unpleasant dreams to you all! Mwah-Ha! ha! ha!

The BOYTOONS MAGAZINE Halloween 2011 issue!


Well I’m sure by now you’ve noticed that this blog has undergone some major plastic surgery. It was high time too. I think I’m one of those people that loses interest in things when they start to look a bit stale.  I need change.  At least, that’s the case where websites and Blogs are concerned.  BOYTOONS MAGAZINE was a bit uninspiring to me of late, and Fraser suggested that a new look for the site might rekindle my interest. As always, he was right.

You can expect things to continue to change over the next little while as Fraser and I add features and adjust stuff a little bit here and there. But for the most-part, I’m happy to say that I feel a renewed sense of interest in BOYTOONS MAGAZINE. It also helps that I took a wee break from it for a couple of months, and now feel like I have stuff I want to talk about again! LOL!

So to help us celebrate the new look of this blog, I whipped up a new illustration of my Clown Prince of Cock: Stéphane! And since I know how much you all love these, I turned him into a new wallpaper design for your desktops.  You might also like to know that I’ve resumed work on Stéphane’s Funhouse of Fornication #1, and while I have no release date set yet (because you can’t rush art! XD ) I am working on it and I hope to see it done and available next year.

Enjoy the new look, my friends. And thanks again for the support and enthusiasm. You guys are a blast and I’ll be bringing you more goodies here very shortly!

BIG Hugz + kisses, Patrick XOXOX

I LOVE Halloween – A post a day – Day 9


I love it as much, if not more in some ways than Christmas. It’s so much fun with all the candy and the costumes and the horror movies and the golden opportunities to draw special Halloween-themed illustrations!  I love it all.

In the past, I’ve always created a special illustration of one of my boys for the Boytoons Magazine Halloween issue cover ( not to worry, this year’s Halloween issue is coming up in just a few days), but this year, I thought I would go even further and create a BRAND NEW CHARACTER for the occasion.  You’ll be meeting JACKO the HALLOWEENER (yes. Pun intended!) very soon, and I promise you he is all about the Halloween spirit — spooky, but being a Class Comics character, also VERY hot!! LOL!

Jacko is even gonna meet SPACE CADET for the first time in this month’s STRIPSHOW episode, which will premiere with the October 2010 Class Comics newsletter, heading out later this week (be sure to sign up for our newsletter if you haven’t already. That way you won’t miss the episode!).  I thought, why not really get into the Halloween spirit this year and do a bit more than just a solo image for the occasion.  The other awesome thing about this STRIPSHOW episode is that I did it in my BOYTOON ADVENTURES drawing style (BELIEVE ME! it REALLY suits the Holiday), and it’s the very first time we get to see Space Cadet in that style (beyond being a poster in a dorm room!)!  How cool is that?

There are still a few days to wait for Jacko to arrive on the Halloween issue cover, but in the meantime, I thought it might be fun to revisit a few of my past year’s Halloween illustrations! I hope you enjoy my Halloweenized Cam, Stephane, Ghostboy and of course my “sweet treat” African-American Halloween Hunk.  I’ll see you back here tomorrow for Day 10!

Convention Style Sketches! A post a day – Day 4

A lot of my fans and readers have asked me to make more of  my original art available for purchase.  Last year, Fraser and I thought we’d put a cool new spin on the idea of selling my originals, so we offered up “Convention Style Sketches Originals” – affordable, hand-drawn original pencil and ink sketches created by yours truly, featuring your Class Comics character of choice!

We were absolutely floored by the response.  I believe there were 40 available slots, and they filled up in no time!  And I LOVED seeing the character choices people made.  Some of them were a terrific, unexpected surprise!!

Convention style sketches are fun because they are very loose and freeing.  I don’t feel huge stress when I create them for a fan because they are meant to be an “inspiration of the moment” sort of drawing, and take roughly half an hour to forty-five minutes long to draw.  They’re a lot of fun, and today I wanted to share a few of the drawings that I created as a result!

BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #140 – The Halloween Issue!

I love Halloween!  I love it as much as I love Christmas, and that is saying a lot!  I thought it would be fun to do a special Halloween issue this year, counting down my personal 10 recent fave Halloween treats.  And to celebrate the occasion, I thought I would draw a cover Boytoon that seems to scare a whole lot of you! Behold Stephane riding his Jack O Lantern! What you all have against clowns, I’ll never know!  LOL!

So without further delay, here are my fabulously scary top 10 Halloween Treats of 2008!

Written and Directed by the very crafty Spierig brothers, this is one of those low budget films that manages to look like a multi-million dollar budget flick.  This movie is so fun and so slick, you forget you’re watching something that cost about $1.50 to make.  In the tongue-in-cheek spirit of The Evil Dead and Dead Alive, Undead maintains the gore-drenched zombie horror tradition as five survivors take shelter in an isolated farmhouse to battle their way through a plague of walking dead.  It’s original and gives the Zombie genre a whole new twist that I just adored! That’s why this little beauty is my #1 Halloween treat of 2008!

#2… Jack Brooks Monster Slayer

What if Buffy had been a boy — A sexy, redneck boy with a real bad attitude and a great set of abs (well, at least on the DVD cover!)?  That’s essentially what this bizarre yet hilariously gory Horroromidy is all about.  And with Robert Englund chewing up the scenery, this one is headed straight for Cult Movie Status! Tentacle porn anyone?

#3… The Monster Trilogy
Okay, so I didn’t care for the second book as much as the first and third, but man o man, can David Wellington ever write a scary trilogy!  His Zombie saga is terribly engrossing and keeps you holding your breath!  Monster Island sees New York become a graveyard of voracious yet frighteningly smart zombies.  Monster Nation, though very cool in its own way, has a lot of military stuff in it (which I seldom like!).  Monster Planet makes you want to sleep with the lights on!  Fantastic reading!

#4… Crossed
Published by Avatar Press, this is one freaky comicbook!  Of course it is, it’s written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Jacen Burrows.  It’s the bloody end of the world alright, and the “infected” or whatever the fuck they are like to rip you apart and then do things to your body part!  Seriously nasty – and seriously addictive! Though be warned, this little blood fest is NOT for the feint of heart!


Because not everything Halloween has to be about Zombies, blood and mischief, the UGLYDOLLS are the coolest stuffed thing-a-majigs to hit the shelves in a long, long time. Uglydolls are plush, lovable characters that show us that being UGLY means accepting our differences and embracing our flaws. They’re so ugly, they’re adorable.  They come in several different sizes and there are a ton of characters to choose from!

#6… Day of The Dead

I will confess, this is the one Zombie flick that features army stuff that I actually really liked.  It’s no academy award winner by any stretch, but it’s mighty entertaining.  Nick Cannon, Mena Suvari and Ving Rhames star in this horror film based on the George A. Romero classic zombie film. A mysterious virus has infected the small town of Leadville, Colorado, and the military is brought in to enforce a quarantine and stop the spread of the disease. As people perish, survivors realize that the virus is creating the walking dead who crave human flesh. Only a small number of people are immune to the virus, and those few survivors must battle to fend off the infected zombies while trying to make it out of town alive. Great gory fun!

#7… The Ruins
I went into this film with “0” expectations and found myself surprisingly entertained.  Populated by the most insufferable and annoying 20-somethings you could possibly imagine, you actually begin to care for each one of the characters as their doom seems rather inescapable.  Sufficiently creepy to make you keep your feet on the couch, and rather believable in its decent into madness plot line!  Read the book by Scott Smith or watch the movie, but either way, you ought to check this one out!

#8… Fangland
Trust me – this one is Vampires with (at last) a new twist!  Written by John Marks, Fangland has to be read to be believed.  Anything else I tell you here would only spoil the fun and surprises the book holds in store!

#9… Monster Quest
Finally on DVD, this fantastic series is a must for all of you who have ever wondered about the truth behind stuff like Big Foot, Giant Squids, Werewolves, and Sea Monsters!  The series is intelligent and unbiased, and is guaranteed to keep you entertained and actually maybe even teach you something new.  But don’t expect proof beyond a doubt of the existence of the show’s elusive creatures of the week – that sort of thing would make headline news before ending up on a show put together by the History channel!  Still, well worth shelling out for the complete first season!

#10… The Big Penis Book
Okay – so the Big Penis Book isn’t so much about Halloween, but trust me when I tell you it’s DEFINITELY about monsters! Monster cocks, that is.  In The Big Penis Book we explore the centuries-old fascination with the large phallus, a fascination common to men and women alike. This hefty book is profusely illustrated with over 400 historic photos of spectacular male endowments, including rare photos of the legendary John Holmes. The majority of the photographs are from the 1970s, when the sexual revolution first freed photographers to depict the male entirely nude. Photographers include Bob Mizer of Athletic Model Guild, David Hurles of Old Reliable, Colt, Falcon, Sierra Domino, Third World, and Champion Studios, with each of these iconic photographers interviewed or profiled, along with information about each of their models. The Big Penis Book is written and compiled by Dian Hanson and published by Taschen.

So there you are, dear friends – my top 10 Halloween Treats of 2008!  If you get around to sampling any of them ( or if you already have) do let me know what you think!  You know me!  I love discussing this stuff!

Happy Halloween!
Hugz + Kisses,
Patrick XOXO
