$30 Superpack: Snakepit 2001-2009

by Ben Snakepit

Nine years of Snakepit! Five books! A different varnish on the cover of every single one! Snakepit is nothing if not consistent in its inconsistency! Just like you can watch Ben developing an artistic style over these nine years of drawing three panel comics to summarize every day of his life, the publishers evolved the size of the books and the finish on the cover. The reissued 2001-2003 has a scuff-free matte. 2004-2006 has an acqueos coat. 2007 has no finish, just raw paper (like Snakepit itself). 2008 has a normal matte. And 2009 has full gloss. Will a matte etch be used for the reissue of 2010-2012? Only time will tell. In the meantime, get caught up on how much Ben's macro-storytelling of his life evolves through his twenties and into his thirties. He begins as a young, partying rock-n-roller and slowly calms down to discover that happiness isn't an out of control party, but a trusting relationship with someone he develops intimacy with (and spoiler alert: he continues to play bands).
