Snakepit is a comic zine by Ben Snakepit, with a three-panel comic about each day of his life, very similarly to Jim's Journal, which used to be in The Onion (Ben has referenced Jim's Journal in interviews as one of his favourite comics).

Contributors have included Janelle Hessig of Tales Of Blarg zine. A number of issues of Snakepit were released as split zines with publications such as Clutch, Gullible, Amazing Adult Fantasy and Tight Pants.

The zine is put out as a quarterly, and Ben has also produced one-year anthologies. A book version, also called Snakepit, was published in 2004 by Gorsky Press. With a forward by Aaron Cometbus, it features three years' worth of Ben's comic life. In 2007 a second book was released by Young American Comics, entitled My Life In A Jugular Vein: The Second Snakepit Book.
