Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be doing something a bit different – instead of a little story, you’ll have the chance to see a few covers that I thought were fugly or that caused me to gasp “WTF?!” at my screen. Brace yourselves.

This title isn’t actually m/m, although it sure looks like it to me. The allegedly female character is the one in the background. I think. Is it my imagination, or does it really look like they used two male models?

I’m pretty sure that the guy on the left’s head doesn’t actually belong with “his” body. The guy on the right’s red hair looks perfectly natural, too!

How not to add tattoos…

Sadly, I think the horns look less awful than the crown, which is definitely damning with faint praise. And the proportions are off all over the place.

No! Not the leopard pox! Flee for your lives!!!

The proportions are just… off on this one.

Nice hair, dude with the weirdly tiny head.

This guy really needs to wear a bra over those saggy moobs.

So, which is your, erm, “favorite”?
