Patrick Fillion: The League of Super-Hung Superheroes

by John Calendo

"I once took part in an orgy like the ones I draw," says French-Canadian illustrator Patrick Fillion, whose Class Comics has been delivering rock-hard cock and ripped physiques to Superhero fans for the last three years. "But I decided I was more into the 1-on-1 stuff than the 1-on-5."

At 32, Fillion is poised to become the Stan Lee of gay comics. This June, he debuts his first all-color comic, The Rapture, which will feature not only his own work but a stable of artists, colorists and writers that might rightly be called the School of Patrick. They will be working in the illustrator’s trademark style, spotlighting his trademark characters, like Naked Justice (the redhead in the red mask, above), Ghostboy (the Kabuki-masked stud in blue) and Deimos, a fallen angel with devil horns and goatee (left) who, whether in Heaven or Hell, just can’t help being very popular.

Fillion, who never uses models, never went to art school either. “I applied to Emily Carr here in Vancouver. They turned me down and told me that I could teach cartooning!” He subsequently taught himself anatomy by studying “tons of muscle-building magazines" (a pastime we’re sure our readers are familiar with.) "I prefer to work without a net," he says of his decision not to use models. Actually, a mere human body would only slow his imagination down!

But it’s not just his understanding of the body that is amazing, his backgrounds are beautifully nuanced, as well. Note, for instance, the moody window shadows in the Deimos picture, above, the tense wrinkling of the red sheets, the restless folds of the pillow. There’s nothing remotely Mickey Mouse about the art of Patrick Fillion.

"I’ve always felt that the erotic should be unusual, never ‘normal,’" Fillion says of his subject matter. "Locus, my bug boy, is erotic because he’s exotic. He’s the unknown to us, the mysterious, the fantastic. What would his skin feel like? What would it be like to kiss a boy with green skin and antennae? It’s a mystery, and it’s exciting."

Another unique signature of the Patrick Fillion Superhero is that he’s usually a bottom (or as we modern guys say, "versatile.") "Sure, my Superheroes are sexy and hung like horses,” he contends, “but the bottom side of them allows me to tell a more emotional story. However, I wish to point out that my tops are just as sweet!"

The illustrator admits that occasionally his fans get carried away. "Sometimes, I receive fan mail that makes me blush!," he says. "Certain fans have pretty interesting notions about the type of person I am! But truth be told, I am a one-man guy, very romantic and very devoted." Patrick, in fact, is business-partners with his long-term boyfriend, Fraz. "I think for me, certain fantasies are best left on paper!"

Still, so powerful are his fantasies that they began expressing themselves before he was quite old enough to do anything about them. "By the age of 11, I was drawing naked guys, unsure of what it all meant. My characters were leading double lives… in one life they had regular adventures, which I shared with friends and family, and in another, they were having Superhero adventures in the buff."

Patrick soon figured what was up when he kept re-reading a comic where Spiderman got stripped by a mob of hypnotized villagers. "They tore at his costume and shredded it until only little scraps were left to cover the poor hero. I remember cherishing that issue of Spider-Man and pulling it out often, to relive the shredding of the costume. Spidey just seemed so beautiful to me, and so noble, willing to endure so much harm so as not to hurt the innocent, mind-controlled people "

Below, Patrick stands with his Superboys, most notably Camili-Cat, the "Felinoid" he first drew when he was 12. (The cat boy seems to be a bit of a self-portrait, huh, Patrick?) As for his lifelong attraction to fantastic Supermen, Patrick believes it has a lot to do with growing up gay:

"You can feel pretty alone and lost as a gay child. Sometimes having a safe fantasy place to escape to is very healthy. As a child, science fiction permits you to let your mind go nuts and have a bit of fun. As an adult, it’s important to remain young at heart. Letting yourself enjoy fantasy material is a great way to do this, in my opinion."

You can purchase Patrick Fillion’s comics or his new line of Superhero T-shirts, mousepads and boxer shorts at Class Comics on the web

    I love the great detail. In another artist’s opinion, I can tell that you put a lot of hard work into your art. I get a sense of reality when I see the characters, meaning I can feel their character come to life. I feel their personality emerge from their facial expressions, their body posture, among other things. It’s pure genius, what you have given us, & I thank you for your innovative talent & expression. Kudos to you. *wink*

    Bonjour Patrick,

    Je me sens un peu ridicule de t’avoir écrit en anglais, je ne savais pas que tu venais du québec. Je veux juste te dire que tu es mon artiste préféré. Tu es le seul artiste que je connais qui est, premièrement comme moi, et deuxièmement qui peut provoquer le gens hétéro lol. Non sérieux je voudrais savoirou je pourrais me procurer tous tes oeuvres parce que j’ai juste pu trouver la petite boite contennant cinq petit livre. J’aimerais aussi savoir ou as tu trouver l’énergie mais surtout le ghost pour faire se genre d’art. Mon j’étudie au collège lionel-groulx en art et je dois toujours me restreindre a une sorte d’art mais grace a toi je peux mettre ma petite touche. Tu es vraiment un artiste que j’admire et je te dit me ne pas lâcher. Au plaisir d’avoir une petite réponse de tapart. xxx Beny

    You are my inspiration. I love to read your comics and they bring me relief that my life is not just another living soul. It is actually worth more than I know. Even though they are just books of fantasy, they are the strenght for gay men that are masc. and tough and fem. I really enjoy your work and sometimes get carried away but o well sh.. happens. Thanks for keeping up the great work. All the best wishes to you my friend. The next time I am in Cananda I will look you up.

    Your Fan Of Art,

    I saw Patrick’s stuff in Greece, but also remember works by Alvarez and an english guy called Tim who was doing a strip for “Babel” which was never printed in the end (too gay?). The vibrant European BD tradition has made these artists superior to the ones in the States and in the UK generally- they know anatomy and they know how to draw dicks: they also have an intelligent and wicked sense of humour!

    Whenever I see Locus I have a gay fantasy. Well, it starts out with me at age 12, and I`m walking my dog in the park. A UFO lands in front of me and Locus walks out. He is the same age as me and starts talking to me. Locus is naked and I`m having a massive erection. After 10 minutes, we are naked, copulating, sucking cocks and balls, kissing, admiring our beautiful dicks, slapping each others`s asses, and talking about being parents. Oh, who am I kidding! Keep up your sexy stuff, Patrick!

  • Steve

    Patrick… I have just discovered your art, literally the images on this page are the first that I’ve seen. Just this sampling is amazing. I’ve read the other postings from admirers of your art characters and their endowments. I agree with them… but I’d much rather explore the man himself than just his art. With your imagination and creativity there’s no doubt that anyone that captures your attention (and heart?) is lucky indeed. If you live in southern CA and need a friend….
