I've been collecting pics for an eventual Conan The Barbarian post but this...this couldn't wait until then. Check out this awesome alternate cover of Conan: Road of Kings #1 by Dale Keown:

Today's post is a request from Rob who wanted to see the guys of Inuyasha. As such, the focus of this post is more on the supporting characters and less on the title character.
Both the images and their accompanying archive are pretty big. The archive is around 32 MB. I'll shrink the images more and make a smaller one if someone asks.
I am always happy to take requests so if you have one, let me know in a comment, an e-mail, or the shoutbox. Sometimes it's a little challenging to find good images so bear with me if it takes me a while to post it.

With its release coming in just two days in America, I figured it would be great to revisit Flynn Rider, the male hero from Disney's Tangled.
This post features not just screencaps from trailers and movie clips but also some really cool promo and concept art. Seeing more of the 2D art kind of makes me wish Tangled was 2D like The Princess and The Frog. Then again, seeing a Disney prince in CG is certainly unique.
Just like the last Tangled post, there are some extra pics to be found in the image archive. This archive is a bit larger than others because I opted not to shrink any pics.

Superman: Earth One is the new original graphic novel that presents a more "modern" take on Superman's origins. Written by J. Michael Straczynski and featuring art by Shane Davis, this book is so popular that it actually sold out on Amazon.com.
It seems that what you think of this book is based mostly off your previous experience with Superman. People who like Superman seem to not like it as much as those who hated Superman in the past. Personally, I'm somewhat in the middle. I like the art a lot. However, the story is sort of hit or miss. There are some things I like and some things I didn't. Overall, I'm definitely looking forward to more.
Check out some more scans below.

Final Fantasy XIV is the latest entry in the long-running series. Like Final Fantasy XI, this entry is an MMORPG and not a traditional RPG.
Square Enix has a history of using hot male characters in their Final Fantasy games. Even though Final Fantasy XIV is an online game, they still managed to do this by putting an unnamed Hyur (human) archer upfront. He's featured prominently in the game's opening movie and was also featured in the pre-release trailers.
Below, you'll find a combination of offical artwork and screencaps of the males in this game.
