Best Local Comic Book

TIE: Lawless Comix, Snake Pit

These two local underground comics have nary a superhero in sight and rely on autobiographical material (Snakepit) and lowbrow humor (Lawless Comix) to entertain their growing number of readers. Snakepit chronicles Ben White's rock & roll lifestyle three panels per day, while Lawless is a collection of local strip artists expressing themselves in an uncensored environment unlike the one afforded them in the pages of The Daily Texan, their original intended venue. Editor Joseph Devens' Whale is a surreal standout.
