Many years ago, Patrick Fillion decided he wanted to own a comic book company when he grew up. His dream eventually came true, and today Patrick and his life and business partner, Fraz have formed Class Comics Inc.
The Class Comics universe is populated by characters that Patrick has created over the years. Some of these characters, such as Camili-Cat, were created as long ago as 20 years back.
Patrick’s work is highly regarded, and he himself is considered one of the finest artists of Gay erotica of our time. His creations have been deemed as hot as those of Tom of Finland’s and his characters, rich and endearing while sensual and arousing, have become a part of Gay pop culture.
Recently, Class Comics has begun to bring new artists into the fold, and Patrick has happily been scripting stories for these talented individuals to draw. He has often said that there are more stories in his head than he could possibly draw, so this way Patrick gets to see his ideas come to life in ways he could never have imagined. He and Logan have recently completed Deimos #1. The pair are currently working on Deimos #2.
The Rapture series is another fine example of how Patrick enjoys collaborating with other artists. Patrick has written several short stories for aritsts like Ismael Alvarez, Spubba and Eric Mars. These stories feature Patrick’s characters Incubus, Naked Justice and Ghostboy and have made the Rapture series extremely popular with fans.
Another popular title created by Patrick is the 4-part Satisfaction Guaranteed series. This title features a massive corporation who can make all of your sexual desires and fantasies come true. Populated with scorchingly sexy guys, Satisfaction Guaranteed offers something for every reader.
Patrick continues to create characters and stories and illustrate comics for Class Comics. His latest creation, Zahn is a huge hit with fans of Class Comics. The series follows the adventures of a gay barbarian with strange elelmental powers who must vanquish evil from his homeland. With a gay twist on the sword and sorcery genre, Zahn captivates the imagination and arouses at the same time. Zahn #1 is now available for purchase in our catalog section or at your favorite comic or book shops.
Currently, Patrick is hard at work on the highly anticipated Camili-Cat: Felinoids #3. This final chapter of the Felinoids saga is very special to Patrick as it sees him concluding a major chapter in Camili-Cat’s life. Look for Camili-Cat: Felinoids #3 to be released later in 2008.
