IDW Collects SNAKED- Its Most Controversial Comic

by Jeff

(San Diego, July 15, 2008) — The SNAKED comic series, which IDW Publishing considers its most controversial comic series to date, is being collected in a new graphic novel with plenty of extras. A cleverly concocted political thriller, SNAKED tells the story of Bill Timmons, who is born with scales and a latent ability for bloody outburst… but when Timmons makes it to the high-profile political scene, he finds out who the *real* snakes are.

Conceived by author Clifford Meth and artist Rufus Dayglo, with cover art by Ashley Wood, the SNAKED graphic novel includes all three issues of the reality-based political thriller as well as the original short stories that inspired the series with illustrations from Dave “X-Men” Cockrum. In addition to never-before-seen art, there’s also a new introduction by Gene Colan, the creator of “Blade.”

SNAKED has been optioned by Elysium Films with Meth scripting.
