    I was trying to explain Snakepit comics to a friend the other day, and I realized that although it doesn't SOUND especially compelling, it somehow IS compelling. While earlier years of Ben's life were more entertaining to follow (heavy drug use, alcohol consumption and constant touring with punk bands made for some great stories), I find the comics no less absorbing now that he's gotten married, moved to the suburbs, curbed his weed smoking and drinking and even started exercising.

There's something about the natural unadorned rhythm of his life that still manages to fascinate. I was once a friend and occasional roommate, but now that we live very far apart I'm able to catch up on his life through Snakepit.

    There’s so much to like about this collection of daily autobiographical comic strips. As an aging punk and closet metal head I loved the daily playlist. It made me think “ Oh yeah ! I haven’t heard that band in ages ( Born Against). Or “wow. Ben’s got great taste in music. (World Burns to death)”. What may appear to be a chronicle of the tedium of daily existence is actually full of spark, love, creativity, art, and a general desire to live a life of purpose. Sure, we get plenty of panels of Ben There’s so much to like about this collection of daily autobiographical comic strips. As an aging punk and closet metal head I loved the daily playlist. It made me think “ Oh yeah ! I haven’t heard that band in ages ( Born Against). Or “wow. Ben’s got great taste in music. (World Burns to death)”. What may appear to be a chronicle of the tedium of daily existence is actually full of spark, love, creativity, art, and a general desire to live a life of purpose. Sure, we get plenty of panels of Ben drinking craft beer, eating take out and watching Star Trek but it is balanced with a love for his wife and dog, a keen commitment to DIY ethics and problem solving and a life full of music and comics ( his passions). I’m roughly the same age as Ben. I listen to the same bands and read comix as a 49 year old.I grew up publishing zines and hanging out at punk shows. Manor’s a lot like my town. I feel like we could be friends in an alternative universe. Support Microcosm and independent creators and publishers. I try to. I ordered this from an independent bookstore in a city close to me. I plan to check out their back catalogue. Recommended without reservation. A great book. 5/5

    SNAKEPIT WHEN CAN WE BE FRIENDS. I know nothing about punk lyfe, but I, like you, moved out of North Centralish Austin (almost) into the burbs. Though I went the Cedar Park direction, and uhhh Manor is pretty far out there! But now I'm like....huh, it sounds cool. I'm glad you are still eating pizza and drinking a little less beer and being pretty nice to your wife. I read this, also, when I was exercising a lot and I was like yeah, you go! Work out! But anyway, beyond the minutae I personally id SNAKEPIT WHEN CAN WE BE FRIENDS. I know nothing about punk lyfe, but I, like you, moved out of North Centralish Austin (almost) into the burbs.

But anyway, beyond the minutae I personally identified with, it is kind of amazing how good B.S. is at getting into the rhythm of regular old life, lulling you into it, making you feel hungry and happy and existentially nostalgic and hopeful all at once. Man, I was in Austin for most of this book. Still blows my mind. ANYWAY. MANOR THREAT. <3 <3 <3 Snakepit Fiend Forever.
