Kyle Pierce is just one of the Specimen Models appearing in the "Golden Boys" editorial photographed by Richard Pier Petit, grooming by Georgi Sandev from Models.com. Joining Kyle are, among others, Andre Douglas,Philippe Koo,Josh Petry, and Darrell Walden Junior.
While Chris Fawcett will always be an Idle fave, the new guy at Mens Underwear Store, photographed by Lisa Mandel, sure has a contagious enthusiasm! His name is Steve Boyd, and he's with Chosen in Chicago! (Thanks, MUS!).
Recently Idle posted sneak peek pics of Christopher Brown of Vision Models by Jeff Slater. The full editorial is in Bello Mag and is called "Study Break". Assisting Jeff in the shoot are Angela Peralta, Gabrielle Brown, Priscilla Barrios, Blake Brooks, and Tiffany Burgess. Accompanying Chistopher, ao from Vision, are Samantha Higdon, Josh Oliver and Nic Balducci.

Sam Scott Schiavo took these pictures of Marcel, and has this to say: "The Viennese student & actor from TEMPO MODELS is a natural in front of the camera, the hazel eyed MARCEL has a raw Pasolinian sensuality that sets him apart from the rest ....."
Personally, I think this next pic is way cool, with the focus on the right eye!

To show how organized I am, I THOUGHT I'd posted pics of Moritz Mitterbauer before, and Blogger tells me I'm wrong! Moritz just got out of the military and is an Austrian model whose pictures here are by the talented Sam Scott Schiavo!
Photographer Jeff Slater gave us a sneak peek of Vision Model Christopher Brown (not to be confused with the other Chris Brown)a couple of months ago, and now adds the lovely Sam , also a Vision Model in this next shot:
Here's some of Christopher's Vision portfolio:

A sneak peek at Marlon Teixeira's editorial "Lone Ranger" (one of Idle's faves!) from the first issue of Seventh Man, which Marlon covers,from Homotography!Marlon is photographed by Matteo Zini and styled by Julie Ragolia.
The DC Comics crossover event, Blackest Night, killed the winged avengers, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, at the outset, but they had frequently been casualties, as characters, of the various changes in continuity over the years. Hawkman was created in the 1940s as archeologist Carter Hall, who discovered himself to be a reincarnated Egyptian prince when faced with the reincarnation of the priest who had killed him, and who was now threatening Shiera Saunders, herself the reincarnation of the prince's love, a princess of ancient Egypt. Donning a mask, as comic characters do, Carter employed ancient weaponry, and a mysterious nth metal that permitted him to defy gravity, becoming the winged Hawkman, defeating the evil priest and rescuing Shiera, rekindling an ages old romance.
Shiera assisted Carter in his superheroic career as a civilian for awhile, but eventually donned her own costume and, powered by nth metal as well, accompanied Carter as Hawkgirl until the end of the Golden Age of comics.
With the advent of the Silver Age of comics, many characters were revamped with more science fiction bent, and the Hawks were given a fresh start as husband and wife police officers from the planet Thanagar, Katar and Shayera Hol. After apprehending a Thnagarian criminal hiding on Earth, the Hawks were assigned to our planet in order to study police procedures. Taking civilian identities as Carter and Shiera Hall, they became curators of the Midway City Museum.
Eventually DC allowed that the Golden Age characters still existed on a parallel Earth, and crossover meetings and books taking place on other Earths began to be published. Sometime later, DC decided that their universe had become too confusing and published "Crisis On Infinite Earths" the outcome of which was one combined Earth.
DC further confused the Hawks' history by rebooting the Thanagarian Hawks. Eventually, all four Hawks were killed off, and new Hawks were created and discarded. The theme that eventually took hold was the repeatedly reincarnated lovers. In the latest version, Carter discovers that his beloved Shiera (looking a LOT like Thanagarian Shayera, but, then, original recipe Carter was blond) is the Hawkgirl he's been revived alongside, and he's a happy man indeed!
Hopefully, DC will let them stay together this time around!
