Snake Woman

    (Virgin, 2006–2007)
™ and © Virgin Comics LLC

Virgin Comics’ twin-market line arrives. Designed, as it says outright, for India’s 600 million teenagers, and taking aim at the U.S. market as a secondary thought, it draws talent from both countries, with Zeb Wells writing, and Michael Gaydos’ art receiving adequately moody colors from Sampath Kumar and I Jeyabalan. Snake Woman is about a timid young lady, her vivacious roommate, the cute guy next door, and the charming yuppie possessed by a host of murderous demons.

The ending feels a bit of a rough shave, though, when the Snake Woman revelation actually happens off-screen. Suspense is great, but a little more payoff would be appreciated.
