  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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. πŸ˜‰

    I guess May isn’t a fan of sweet potato chips like Chaos.

  6. 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.
