"My Life In A Jugular Vein: Three More Years of Snakepit Comics"
In a sense, despite turning the big 3-0, Ben Snakepit captures the same spirit in the comics he draws, summarizing each and every day of nearly the last decade of his life. In his second collection condensing the last three years (2004 - 2006), we see our hero move to and from Canada, tour the world with J Church, hang out with the Sainte Catherines, meet Mike Watt, get caught in the throes of whirlwind romances and we're there to watch helplessly as he gets his heart broken. There's also more pants-shitting, Adderall tripping and days of doing absolutely nothing to keep the old school fans happy.
Also keeping with tradition there's a song allocated to each day and this collection comes with a mix cd of some of those songs for the maximum Snakepit life experience. Voted Best Minicomic - Wizard March 2006! Voted Best local comic – Austin Statesman 2006!
