Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Snake Pit doesn’t subscribe to a highlight reel-style execution like many of its contemporaries. The artist’s strip, like his life—like all of our lives—is comprised of a million throwaway moments. Try as we might change our ways, or merely simply forget about them, when taken together, they reveal the true nature of our existence." —The Daily Cross Hatch

"Ben imbues his quick tales with honesty, modesty and an animation style reminiscent of Mitch Clem's -- so if you're an internet punk nerd, this should be comfortable territory."  —PunkNews.org

"This is probably the only 'And then I...' autobiocomic that I find worth a damn ..."  —Beaucoup Kevin

"Ben's comic is the visual embodiment of what I really enjoy about DIY punk. On the surface, and to the casual observer, it may not look like much. But there are the watershed days, like with Lance Hahn's death and Ben choking up, unable to say much at Lance's wake, but feeling both a deep sense of loss and compassion for a great dude's passing. It shows that, yeah, music's important to Ben, but it's driven by the people behind it all, what beats in their hearts, and not what's on their t-shirts." —Todd Taylor, Razorcake

"if you’ve ever had a 'wild and free' period of your life, you’ll relate to this something fierce." —Nick Spacek, nuthousepunks.com
