With Snaked, creator Clifford Meth’s goal is to inject a little political commentary with his horror. Not an unknown ambition, but not something you see in modern horror comics beyond broad socio-political statements about the human condition or something. No, Snaked is a little more direct with its cameos by the Clintons and George W., right alongside prison sequences that are as gut-clenchingly horrific as they are impossible to describe on a PG-13 website. Rufus Dayglo handles the art duties, with pencil and ink work resembling Kieron Dwyer and Ashley Wood and a washed-out blue-and-brown palette that wouldn’t look out of place in DC’s defunct Focus line.
