Snarkstress Speaks. Literally.



No, really.

I thought with last week’s hiatus (which will be extending until the 17th, because, vacation) that I should post a little somethin’ somethin’ for you to listen to.

Because I don’t feel like typing.

Because I am both lazy, and sleepy.

So you get me. Talking TO you.

How excited are we?

Considering how long it’s been since I uploaded something like this, I thought it time. (Also? Lazy!Snarkstress is lazy.)

In any event, enjoy. And I’m thinking of making this a regular thing… let me know in the comments if you want to hear more, or if I should just stick to typing it all out.


Emo!Thor Gets Touchy



Issue #186, The Mighty Thor (March 1971)

The Mighty Thor “Worlds At War!”

Thundering!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts!

Yup. Summer has officially come to Seattle and the drama-queening has already started. I’m willing to bet (because you won’t catch me out there actually LOOKING) that there’s already a dangerous shortage of portable A/C units and bottled water. BECAUSE SUMMERTIME IS SERIOUS BUSINESS, Y’ALL! This “heat wave” of “94 – 96” degree weather is only supposed to last 2 whole days. So you can BET the news will be talking about Summergeddon 2012 for the next week. (more…)

Ear Candy!


So I don’t often do this here, although I ought to, but to those of you who’ve been following along, we released our first novel back in February. You can find all the details at the book blog for Minutes To Midnight, along with the first 10 chapters in audio format.

Since there’s been a marked upswing in readers here (*waves*), I thought I’d announce it here, too, that Minutes To Midnight is now also free to listen to from Podiobooks! It won’t cost you a dime, you’ll get to listen to my dulcet tones reading the novel, and you can leave comments/reviews/donations if you so desire.


San Diego Comic Con Jealousy



Issue #180, The Mighty Thor (September 1970)

The Mighty Thor “When Gods Go Mad!”

Thunderous!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts!

So… there’s a little shindig down south of here starting today. It’s called the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), maybe you’ve heard of it? One of the hottest tickets of the year, chock full of enough geekery goodness to make a nerdlet like me squee’splode repeatedly. Exclusive comics and other collectables, panels with special guests, cosplay like whoa, and parties that exhaust the most stalwart of partygoers. (more…)

Batsy Hearts Two!Face



Issue #68, Detective Comics (October 1942)

Batman & Robin: “The Man Who Led A Double Life!”

Moody!Monday, Batfans!

Summer has finally settled here in Seattle, with 80 degree temps that have all the locals swarming the stores for fans and portable a/c units. Have I mentioned how much I love having central air, even if it doesn’t get hot enough to use it? Right. On we go then. (more…)

Luscious!Loki Gets His Ring On



Issue #175, The Mighty Thor (April 1970)

The Mighty Thor “The Fall Of Asgard!”

Thundering!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts!

It’s a gorgeous day outside, and I’ve had to restrain myself all day from running out to play. Unfortunately, my desire for sleep got the better of me (despite two interruptions at my front door) and I’m holding out for the weekend. See, it’s supposed to get really warm. 80′s even. And there’s nothing I enjoy quite so much as listening to the weather drama that follows a heat wave pronouncement. (more…)

Batsy’s Weight Is Over!



Issue #59, Detective Comics (January 1942)

Batman with Robin in “The King Of The Jungle!”

Moody!Monday, Batfans!

Well let’s just say that the freebie promos we’ve run on 4/20 and 4/29 for our book have been incredibly successful. Over 700 copies sold to date, and more still trickling in.

And we’re eagerly anticipating the end of May when we get to open up distribution to more markets. Our fans have made this possible, and we can’t thank you enough! (more…)

Emo!Thor Loves Robots



Issue #174, The Mighty Thor (March 1970)

The Mighty Thor “The Carnage Of The Crypto-Man!”

Thundering!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts.

It’s been quite a week around here at Hus af Snark. For those of you paying attention, we ran a test promotion on the e-book version of Minutes To Midnight over at Amazon on the 20th. And may I say, it was an unmitigated success! Over 500 copies flew out into Kindles and e-readers all over the globe. And to celebrate? We’re doing it again. (more…)

Emo!Thor Rejoins The Circus!



Issue #173, The Mighty Thor (February 1970)

The Mighty Thor “Ulik Unleashed!”

Thunderous!Thursday, Emo!Thor Enthusiasts.


Batsy Battles Insanity!



Issue #57, Detective Comics (November 1941)

Batman and Robin in “Twenty-Four Hours to Live!”

Moody!Monday, Batfans!

Yup. I managed to squeak one out this morning since I’ve been so lax lately. Nothing like spinning a few plates to keep one on their toes, right? I trust everyone managed to survive April Fool’s Day relatively unscathed? I was amused by Think Geek’s normal outlandish offerings (of which 4 of those things MUST become real products because I would just trip all over myself…SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY ALREADY!) and AdBlock’s introduction of CatBlock (which will become a monthly subscription reality, I believe) made the intertoobs a more feline place to peruse.
