Welcome back to Cover Snark! From Lisa: I feel bad nominating this cover for Cover Snark because the artwork is actually pretty good. There are no disembodied heads, intimidating nipples or concerning skin conditions. But! Why that font? Ever since I spotted it, I keep reading it as “Mated to Meh.” I cannot let that go. Elyse: Mek is the sound I’m making looking at the cover. Sarah: This sounds like a reddit post: “AITA … Continue reading Cover Snark: More Reader Submissions
Welcome back to Cover Snark! From Melodie: My brain immediately started singing “One of these things is not like the others…” Poor guy in the back, you can tell he is just so DONE with the other three. Every single time they go to a bakery they have to do the sexy cupcake dance before ordering and he just wants to grab his coffee and muffin and go before they get banned from yet another … Continue reading Cover Snark: What are the Cupcakes?
Welcome back to Cover Snark! From Kerri: There’s a whole lot going on in the background, but I’m really distracted by the plank through his skull. I wonder if that has a negative impact on his pirating. Sarah: Ok who does that model look like? The resemblance is bugging me. Amanda: I bet it’s one of those fake props to intimidate his enemies. Sarah: So this guy uses the plank through the head, another pirate … Continue reading Cover Snark: Questionable Faces
Welcome back to Cover Snark! Elyse: What are these people doing? Tara: I think he’s about to roll his mouth across hers. Carrie: This is why you have to practice on pillows, you guys.

Sarah: I love love love the illustration, the poses of the character is and the SMOLDER on that face, MY GOSH. … Continue reading Cover Snark: Tricky Fonts Strike Again!
It’s Cover Snark time! From Kerri: I saw this cover and was immediately uncomfortable. And the longer I looked at it, the more uncomfortable I got. Either her body is made of cloth, or his body ends at his chest. Sarah: “Oh! How bendy!” Elyse: Is that the “surprise” in surprise dukes? Sarah: Or maybe it’s tickly beards that are the surprise? Lara: Her foot seems too big in comparison to the rest of her … Continue reading Cover Snark: Apologies to Jake Gyllenhaal
Welcome back to Cover Snark! From Susan: WHAT are they looking at??? Is it… is it… his PEEN????? Sarah: “You dropped your puck.” Whatever it is they’re both looking at it. Tara: The guy on the left looks like he’s about to say “I’ve told you already. I am not a doctor.” Sneezy: “Okay, but, does it look like I need to go see one? Do you think the colour’s weird?” Tara: Or, “Nice Line… … Continue reading Cover Snark: Great Reader Submissions
Let’s snark on some covers! Tara: Sapphic romance is at it again. Sarah: I can’t tell if that’s a crocodile or an alligator but…is croc/gator in the O hole a euphemism? Tara: That really IS the question, isn’t it? I mean in addition to “why?” Sarah: “It’s all rather…dentata isn’t it, darling?” Elyse: Is this a croc/dog romance? Carrie: Oh I don’t think that will end well! Lara: I hope the bartending bears have a … Continue reading Cover Snark: Bartending Bears
Happy Cover Snark Monday! Amanda: Sir that is going to be a melty mess in under an hour. Elyse: Imagine you’re already lost in the desert, thirsty as fuck, and some dude comes up to you with a chocolate sampler platter. Carrie: I mean… not even an iced mocha? I didn’t know you could go wrong with chocolate but here we are. Tara: I’d tuck a couple of brownies in my bag for later and … Continue reading Cover Snark: Chocolate in the Desert?
Let’s dive into some Cover Snark! From lils: Wheeewww. If his pits smell so bad he noticed…how does he think his ‘fated mate’ will react? Sarah: How many pit sniff covers have we featured by now? Also that dragon is hellaciously cute. I bet his name is Pinky. Amanda: Okay, but have any of the other pit sniff covers featured an angry body odor dragon? Sarah: Poor Pinky the Body Odor Dragon. So unappreciated. Sneezy: … Continue reading Cover Snark: Blue Steel
Welcome back to Cover Snark! From Gloriamarie Sarah: Have we snarked this before? I’m getting all the alien/nanny/childcare books confused. Amanda: We have snarked MANY Tasha Black covers. Sarah: I still have many questions about the absence of social support networks and child care in this universe. Claudia: Can they really be an advanced society? I think not. I do think we haven’t done this one yet but many like it. The last one had … Continue reading Cover Snark: An Abundance of Nuns, Firemen, & More
From Syntha: I don’t know, but his head is proportionally wrong compared to his torso. Sarah: This is a real conundrum from Syntha – is that the model’s original head (minus the tusks, though I could be wrong about that). Elyse: I’m going to say no. The jaw and neck are both too long. Tara: TIL that orcs can be crossfitters, too. Sneezy: I hate puke green. He is beetle green, and somehow I still … Continue reading Cover Snark: We Have Llamas
