Bio: Mark Padilla's mother knew he was going to grow up to become a fabulous gay comic artist when he began drawing pictures of Lynda Carter on his Huggies. The 1970's television show Wonder Woman inspired an early love for comics, drawing and camp. By age 20, he had drawn enough pictures of Wonder Woman and collected enough comics to wallpaper a colosseum, so he packed up his things and moved away from the SoCal desert and on to the flaming gay city of San Francisco in search fine art/animation training and a more artistically stimulating atmosphere and started drawing cocks constantly instead.

Influences including a myriad of horror & sci-fi movies and animation such as Hanna Barbera, Sailor Moon, Capcom, Disney, She-Ra, and of course Marvel and DC comics, Mark Padilla and his co-creator Husband Johnny Nolen are responsible for the creation of the Gravity Faggot universe.

Planet Gay XXX-Press is the current gay/erotic comic novella from GravityFaggot.com and is available for purchase here on the Prism website!

May '07 marked the release of their first mini comic, a selection from the upcoming graphic novel The Adventures of Wonder Mark & Johnny Freedom, a super-hero-type action adventure featuring plenty of fabulous heroes and villains, for all ages. Please visit GravityFaggot.com to check out all the amazing stuff he and his art collective art collective are up to these days! Be sure to look up the mini comic on the website or you can mail in for your own copy!
