    Glenn, the AOL video starts playing automatically whenever this page loads. Any way to turn it off?

    While I read each chapter as it came out, I just re-read the entire story. It was even better than I'd remembered.However, I am puzzled by the ending.In the 1st chapter, which takes place in the future, Maya doesn't have the mark on her face. Is there a sequel to this story which restores her to the point where she was in the first chapter? There must be, as in that chapter she also mentions these events occurred long ago and she was talking to a different snake. I couldn't have been the same snake or it would have already known of the events she was telling.In any case, I do hope a sequel is forthcoming as I would like to read more of Maya and her friends.

    Congratulations on the conclusion to the FIRST volume of the White Viper. Since White Viper #1, I have been this books biggest fan and most vocal critic. The art has remained consistently strong throughout the story. And I felt like Erin Holroyd's prose grew stronger with each issue. She developed an economy of language. Her narration became less intrusive while her dialog was more subtle and expressive.That said, there are many unanswered questions left in this story. A good chunk of story was invested in introducing Takada Energy, Ta Moa's father, Jigaro, the whole concept of petroleum free plastics; those ideas were introduced and then ignored. Ta Moa's back story was more of a distraction than revelation to this plot. The halves of the coin might as well have led to the hiding place of a sacred ruby of mystical power. It really didn't matter what was hidden there or why it had to be hidden.There is some closure to finding out that Gur Khan is Maya's father, but we still don't know why HE was after the medallion. What is Gur Khan's connection with Takada Energy or Jigaro? Why was Gur Khan hiding his white hair? Why did he wear the mask?Finally, the snake. The snake shows up in the last panel on page 100. Where did it come from? Did Maya carry it with her all the way from the village? Does she hide it under her mini-tunic? There just isn't any room in that costume to hide a poisonous viper. And then in the LAST panel, Maya gets a case of psoriasis that looks like scales. Huh? Why? The ending is strong enough and there are enough unanswered questions without tacking this bit on there. Oh well.You've laid the foundations for a White Viper Book Two. Ta Moa needs to return the formula. He needs to find his father. Maya needs to learn the secret of Gur Khan, which might reveal the secrets of her own power. I hope that there is enough interest from ComicMix and the creative team to make Book 2 a reality.

    Bravo to White Viper. I enjoyed it immensely. The characters are developing well. Maya is a nice role model for young women. Kind, smart, strong, and courageous. It seems in these times we could all use some of that. I hope that crew has another run coming soon.

    Ok, so I haven't been a huge comic fan…since I was 9 or something. That is, until now. I love White Viper and want to see where this goes. You've got me hooked!

    Congrats on Book One! White Viper is really engaging and well written. Maya is not only a great role model for young girls, but the overall sentiment and voice of White Viper is a welcome respite from the garbage out there that's void of a beating heart or values. Only comment is that sometimes the story doesn't take it's time and it becomes too cryptic. Can't wait for Book Two!
