About the Author:

Writer/artist Batton Lash studied cartooning and graphic arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York, where his instructors included Will Eisner and Harvey Kurtzman. In 1979 he started the Wolff & Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre comic strip, which ran weekly in The Brooklyn Paper until 1996 and in The National Law Journal from 1983 to 1997. Starting in May 1994, Wolff & Byrd held court in their own comic book series from Exhibit A Press, which Lash established with his wife, Jackie Estrada. Exhibit A has published five deluxe trade paperback collections and two short graphic novels: The Life-Partner of Frankenstein and The Gods Must Be Litigious. Since 2005 he has been producing an ongoing webcomic at www.supernaturallaw.com. His other comics work has included writing Archie Meets the Punisher for Archie and Marvel; the Archie: Freshman Year series for Archie; and the Radioactive Man series and stories for Bongo Comics.

Review:

"A kind of novel-in-stories that Lash's broad and punny humor and Archie-meets-Tales from the Crypt art keeps consistently light and frothy, a little like whipped slime perhaps. Ludicrous fun in the key of the old Addams Family TV show."
--Ray Olson, Booklist


"This book is amusing and clever ... These level-headed and calm lawyers play straight men to a parade of hapless monsters and other supernatural types as they are guided through their often pathetic legal complaints. The collected stories reinforce each other and further flesh out this off-kilter world."
-- Publisher's Weekly
