Hi Samsonites,

I’ve been on a real reptilian kick lately, especially since watching Titanaboa on Netflix. If Harry Potter proved anything, it’s that a talking snake makes for an excellent villain (oh wait maybe that was the Garden of Eden Bible story). Speaking of the Garden of Eden Bible story, I am sure most of you have caught on to some of the parallels I am making to that story or more to the Apocryphal story of Lilith, Adam’s first wife. I blame it on all the Sunday School I had to attend. Anyway, biblical mythology is an ongoing theme in Suzy Samson (I am sure her name didn’t give that away), so expect to see more of it.

I originally had  a lot more text in this week’s strip, but really edited it down. I think it works much better and has more impact this way.

Just in case any of you didn’t know, if a snake starts talking to you, it’s probably in your best interest to ignore it.
