Story Arc(s): Add/remove story arcs to this issue
Snake Woman is the story of Jessica Peterson, a young introspective midwestern girl who has moved to Los Angeles where she works as a waitress in a downtown LA dive-bar. Naturally quiet and reserved, Jessica's slow immersion into the bigger city life is accelerated all of a sudden when one night a yuppie bar patron she mistakenly trusts accosts her. When he tries to take advantage of her (walking her home from the bar) rattling on about some ancient order and other strange things during the attack itself, Jessica is not only able to fight him off, she actually turns predator and rather gruesomely kills him. Overwhelmed with emotion, Jessica feels a strange one mixed in - arousal. Why did killing him feel so damn good?
Snake Woman is the re-invention of India's ancient Snake (Naga) legends, in which the soul of the serpent reptile is reborn in the form of a sexy and unsuspecting heroine. Increasingly possessed by her reptilian instincts and driven to avenge a centuries old wrong, Jess is now part of something far greater than herself.
Torn between her human brain (ethics, morals, intellect) and her reptilian one (instincts, senses, and survival patterns), Jessica has to uncover this new part of herself and reconcile a fate that suggests we are not living our lives, it's our lives that our living through us.
