This was a character that Dave Darrigo (See DARRIGO Dave) thought suited Ron Hobbs’ (See HOBBS Ron) illustrative style. Ron agreed to illustrate it.
The identity, background and personal ethics of this tough uncompromising crime fighter were shrouded in mystery but the “Snake” has a strong moral sense It was intended to be a serial but only one issue was published. An origin story about “Madame Joy” was inserted into the main plot and illustrated by Peter Hsu. See HSU Peter.
