Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be catching up with Slave Boy, complete with an amazing number of hair color changes. Thanks to Jordan Castillo Price for the Irish Punk cover! (Don’t forget that you can hover your cursor over the cover to see the title as I used it in the Misadventure.)

My God, there are some awful hair transplants going on in some of those covers! Poor slave boy!
I couldn’t see him at all in the Dark Chocolate and Raspberries cover, until I realised the pretty blonde girl in the background was flat-chested… Bit of a problem when an m/m cover looks like a het one!
Several crimes against photo-shopping on display with those different hair styles this week :).

LOl, pass, he looks silly

Get him out of that suit STAT! He looks weird like that. I also thought he was a chick in the Chocolate and Raspberries title…

Poor Mayhem. Mom returns and so do the naughty boys. At least they didn’t hang around while Mom was gone!

Such a sleep cat. And Slave Boy in a suit? What? Where are your delightful abs my sweet? Get those clothes off.

OMG, I love Slave Boy! He is one of my all time favorite stock photo boyfriends!
I am laughing b/c I was writing a post about virgin heroes for my blog next week and as I was looking at covers yesterday I realized he is in quite a few of them. Maybe he looks really innocent? Is he the official virgin poster boy?
I have so many covers with this guy. He is on St. Nacho’s too I think. And Pricks and Pragmatism.

Jayhjay: He does get used for a lot of those sorts of covers, doesn’t he?! And yup, he’s on both the covers you mention – those have appeared in his earlier Misadventures. 🙂
I’m with Josephine. He looked way too much like a flat chested girl on Dark Chocolate and Raspberries. It is kind of hilarious, and I wonder if he objects to being girlified.

Chaos- When Chris returned, so did the naughty boys.
A recent post from Lorraine..The Rhinebeck Experience
I’d be pissed too if he ate all the Dark Chocolate and Raspberries!
A recent post from Val Kovalin..I have gorgeous new cover art
Gah! PhotoShop strikes again!
Are we SURE that kid is of legal age??
A recent post from trek..In which trek drives by the blog
I agree that the DCaR cover looks het. I even passed it by entirely and figured it was a mistake. wow…
I love the captions, as always! It’s been far too long since I’ve checked out these Monday posts.
Thanks for making my day, Chris.
Mayhem and Chaos were so sad next week and now they decide to ignore mom and the naughty boys! Oh, the nerve! Goodness, Slave Boy, there are no words. Thanks for another fun Misadventures!
I would have never guessed that was SB on the Dark Chocolate and Raspberries cover! And what’s up with his shoulder on Crimes of Passion? Whatever cover artist dressed him put him in a suit that’s way too big for him.
A recent post from Ava March..Updates, Relocation, and Tight White Pants
Who put a Batman mask on poor Slave Boy? Is he perhaps getting ready for trick-or-treating?
Aiieee! I thought that was a girl on Dark Chocolate and Raspberries until some others mentioned it. I’d be pissed too if someone ate all of the dark chocolate and raspberries.
Really it should be against the law to have that many photoshopped hair changes. 😉
I guess May isn’t a fan of sweet potato chips like Chaos.
A recent post from Sydney..RIP Zoe Ferret, 2002-2011
Holy crap, but that model needs to be retired. As do several of these cover artists. Whoah, bad photoshopping ahoy!
Chris, Marie and I keep running into our COP poster boy. Not only have we bought him twice for that blog, but she’s had him on two covers now PLUS he was somewhere else. Except half the time you have to read the name to see it’s the same guy. He apparently photoshops himself.
Judging by the covers you keep finding, one would think a virus had wiped out most of the male population — or rendered them camera shy. 🙂
A recent post from K. Z. Snow..Saturday Snark
😀 That is an astounding number of hair color changes, LOL! Thanks for the Monday chuckle!
A recent post from Kristi aka FiberFool..Tutorial: Left Cabling Without a Cable Needle
You have a good eye to spot him in some of the covers 🙂
OMG those first few covers are just so BAD! At least I got a good laugh. lol
A recent post from Tracy..What I Read Last Week
OH NOES! Not the dark chocolate and the raspberries – I’d be pissed, too!
