Snakebit is a gen Escape from New York anthology with two issues.

The first issue was published by Escape Press, and due to a "personal falling out between my co-editor, [Linda Ojard]" the second issue was published by Escape Press of Texas. Something must have been worked out, though, as the fourth issue was by Escape Press. Linda Ojard continued to write and contribute art to the other issues.
