I’m a huge fan of the work of CLX, so I’m super-excited that the second chapter of his sex-fuelled comic Lust is now available.
CLX is drawing on his obsession with the TV show Lost as his inspiration for this graphic art sex-fest. If you ever fantasised about Dr Jack in the centre of some man-on-man action, then Lust is going to tick a lot of boxes for you.
“I watched the entire show in French, when it was broadcast in my country…” explains CLX. “Like millions of viewers, I was totally hooked at the first episode. I remember thinking it was like no other TV show that I’d seen before. So many characters, so many different stories, so many questions along the way. It was the first time that I’d seen Matthew Fox, the actor that plays Jack. To me, he’s a hell of an actor — expressing so many emotions with his face, his eyes. Plus, he’s also very good-looking. At first I was blown away by the story-line. I guess the fantasies came later.”
As well as an intriguing story-line, Lust is brought to life by the incredibly evocative and arousing drawing of CLX.
“Originally, I had a whole story in mind…” explains CLX. “But, your characters can drive you to places you never thought you’d go. I added characters, I let them make me draw things I’d never thought I’d be drawing. It’s amazing how at some point your creation seems alive and takes control of the story, or the posing, the layout. I sometimes think that I’ve let myself get carried away, but actually I think that it’s the characters that have led me down this path.”
Often, the best erotic drawing doesn’t need a lot of dialogue alongside it — it fuels your imagination and you can fill in the blanks as to the heat and the connection between the characters. CLX cleverly gives us enough words to guide us through the narrative, but doesn’t let the text distract from the action on the page.
One of the strengths of Lust is that it creates characters and encounters that feel real and authentic. I love how hairy he draws the guys, their bodies captured with a realism that’s compelling.
The detail of the drawings is what really pushed me over the edge — the veins on a cock-shaft, the folds on a foreskin, the way that a hairy fuck-hole looks as fingers are pushed in or a cock penetrates. That’s quality erotica.
“The technique is quite simple— mechanical pens with different ranges of hardness on grainy thick art paper…” explains CLX. “I use lots of photo references, often up to four or six for some panels in order to create the pose I have in mind. The guys that inspire me are often models in photos I find on social networks. I look for lots of erotic or porn poses, as I need naked bodies in every sort of position to help me create the comic.”
Lust is one-handed reading at its finest.
The good news is that CLX is already working on Chapter 3 of the Lust series.
“The Uninvited will be the third instalment in the adventure…” confirms CLX. “This next chapter will give readers much more story-line, dialogue, and drama — all still with hot gay sex, of course!”
The Uninvited will be published on the Patreon page of CLX, with the comic-book scheduled to be published in May 2019.

“Why are you limping?” asked Hamish, as he met Charlie for drink after work. They met in Howl At The Moon – it was busy with the after-work crowd.
“It’s a bit embarrassing…” mumbled Charlie, taking the pint of Guinness that Hamish had bought for him.
“A fisting accident?” asked Hamish.
“Nothing like that…” dismissed Charlie. “I’ve got a new job.”
“That’s great news!” said Hamish. “Why is that embarrassing? How is this related to you limping?”
“Um… well, I’ve taken a job with Sweatbox…” explained Charlie.
“Sweatbox?” repeated Hamish. “Sweatbox in Soho? Sweatbox the sauna?”
“Yes, exactly…” nodded Charlie. “They’re renovating at the moment. They called me in for what I thought was some training before they re-opened, but it turned out that the place is still a total building site so I spent the day lugging heavy boxes up and down stairs. Obviously, I’m not really used to manual labour, so now everything hurts. Everything.”
“Back it up…” said Hamish. “What do you mean you’ve taken a job with Sweatbox? What sort of job?”
“Um, just a general kind of team-member job…” shrugged Charlie.
“What the fuck?” laughed Hamish. “Why would you take a job like that? Are you that desperate for money?”
“Pretty much…” nodded Charlie, taking a long drink from his pint of Guinness. “It’s not just that – I thought it would be good for my writing and stuff, but mostly it’s for the money.”
“You are full of surprises…” grinned Hamish. “Wait, isn’t that going to be kind of awkward if I go to Sweatbox and I see you working there?”
“Why would that be awkward?” asked Charlie.
“Because I’m going to be in a towel, about to get my rocks off, and you’re going to be swishing around with a mop and bucket!” exclaimed Hamish. “It’s going to kind of kill the vibe a bit if I know that it’s you who’s going to have to wipe up my cum.”
“When you put it like that, it is a bit awkward…” agreed Charlie. “How often do you go to Sweatbox?”
“Not that often…” shrugged Hamish. “But probably more than you might expect. When do you start?”
“Not sure, to be honest…” replied Charlie. “I think they’re hoping to have it all open by the start of February. Anyway, how was your day?”
“Not bad…” said Hamish. “I spent most of my time working on Brexit-related stuff. Then, this afternoon, I had a meeting – I guess he’s technically my client, but he feels more like my boss. Without the money I get from him, I wouldn’t be able to pay my bills.”
“He’s definitely your boss…” decided Charlie. “How did the meeting go?”
“I don’t know, it was weird…” shrugged Hamish. “He just kept saying how tired he was. How stressed he was. I’d gone in there thinking that I was pitching for more work and more money, but he just spent 30 minutes talking at me, telling me things that I already knew. After 30 minutes, he stopped, like he’d run out of things to say. So I said, is there anything else that you need from me today? And he said no. Total waste of time.”
“That’s probably how Theresa May feels…” said Charlie.
“Do not compare me to Theresa May!” declared Hamish, slapping the palm of his hand down onto the bar to emphasise the point. “Are you going to be able to get me a friends and family discount at Sweatbox?”
“I don’t know, to be honest…” shrugged Charlie. “I guess so. They give free entry if you’re under 25.”
“Are you suggesting that I could possibly pass for being younger than 25?” laughed Hamish. “You’re as delusional as Theresa May!”
