Tales of Supernatural Law book. Lash's central concept is great

Tales of Supernatural Law book. Lash's central concept is great. Wolff and Byrd are lawyers who specialize in the supernatural and their clients include Dracula, a tree monster, and a gangster haunted by the ghost of his enemy's flunky. The drawings have an appealing retro style, but the he's way too fond of bad puns and the despite contemporary references from when the strips first appeared in the early '90s, the whole thing feels a little too old-fashioned.

Beware the creatures of the night -They have Lawyers And these lawyers are Alanna Wolf and Jeff Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre. This collection is volume 1 in the Tales of Supernatural Law graphic novel series. Lawyers have never been this funny. com User, November 3, 2005.

Lash follows the previous Supernatural Law collections Sonovawitch! (2000), Vampire Brat (2001), and Mister Negativity (2003) not with new work but with some of the comic book's earliest stories. This is delicious stuff. Supernatural Law (ne Wolff & Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre) succeeded a strip regularly featured in the National Law Journal (indication that lawyers are people, too) when Lash decided to create stories as well as gags.

The Rollers of Vildar The Rollers of Vildar
All Rise!!! Court is now in session. The cases will be defended by the law firm of Wolff & Byrd, the Counselors of the Macabre. On the docket today is Tales of Supernatural Law.

Case #001- A twist on the Curse of the Monkey's Paw legend when a beloved family pet is wished back from the dead, things don't turn out as they should.
Case #002- The Curse of the Were-House, a lovely two-story home that turns into a haunted house every full moon.
Case #003- A civil case involving zombie workers who've decided to go on strike.
Case #004- The People Vs. Common Decency... A horror TV host from the 1950s on the verge of a comeback is accused of promoting juvenile delinquency.
Case #005- A super model is accused of violating the contract with her modeling agency. She is counter-suing that the hot shot behind the agency used magic to change her appearance. Can the team of Wolff and Byrd see to it that the evidence WEIGHS in her favor?
Case #006- Dracula, yes THE Dracula, sues the sideshow industry for copyright infringement.

Lastly before the court adjourns to sunny San Diego for the annual Lawyer Convention, the Counselors of the Macabre will seek to postpone the sad case of Sodd, The Thing That's an It, a young man tragically turned into a walking pile of foliage.
As you can see from this full case load, there are tons of great law stories with a supernatural edge to them. I had read this book years ago when I first discovered the series at my local library. Now that I am collecting the series, I wanted to re-read this collection. I loved it then and I think after my trip down memory lane, I have fallen that much more in love with Supernatural Law.
I guess artist/writer/creator Batton Lash has cast a spell on me.

Batton Lash, the author of "Supernatural Law" series is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!! The artwork is, well, art. The characters are well thought out and drawn with subtle variations of style that fit each one. The stories hold your attention and the word play is enough to delight the most discerning reader as well as anyone looking for a giggle. I rated this book as "No violence", unless you consider someone being transformed by magic as "violence." It is a shame you can only give this five stars. It should be more like fifteen stars.

If you are a lawyer, you will probably find this quite funny in a law school kind of way. If you aren't, you won't get it...

The husband and wife team of writer/artist Batton Lash and letterer/editor Jackie Estrada have been creating the hysterical adventures of supernatural attorneys Wolff & Byrd since 1979, first running The Brooklyn Paper and then in the National Law Journal. The pair established Exhibit A Press in 1994 where Wolf & Byrd have been appearing in their own bi-monthly comic ever since. Tales of Supernatural Law reprints the first 8 issues in the comic series that are sure to delight fans of classic horror and monsters.

In "Herbert has Risen from the Grave" the pair provide a twist on the famous horror story "The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs as Wolff and Byrd find themselves having to aid a man beset by law suits from his reanimated dog Herbert. "Curse of the Were-house" the lawyers find themselves helping Byrd's old flame, Kim, who lives with her husband in a house by a former dabbler in the dark arts that built the home with wolfsbane...every full moon the house becomes haunted.

One of the funniest stories is "A Host of Horrors" about a bunch of down and out, and unemployed former horror film hosts who lost their jobs when righteous Dr. Forrest Bertrum led the government to crackdown on all things horror years early. A sardonic parody of the all too true crusade of Dr. Frederick Wertham's "Seduction of the Innocent" in the 1950's. This story, featuring classic EC Comics style lettering, finds the horror host, The Bier-Meister accused of stealing the body of Bertrum.

Fans of classic horror will love "It Stalks the Public Domain" as the proprietors of rival traveling horror/freak shows are each displaying the body of the supposed true Dracula. The story draws on House of Frankenstein using names such as Lampini, the character George Zucco played in that film, even recreating the scene where the stake is removed from Dracula's chest and he returns to life, clothes and all, and he is not happy about all of the pretenders! Just a hilarious story!

Cleverly written and with a cartoony, yet polished style of art, Tales of Supernatural is a blast to read, filled with monsters, innuendo and inside jokes. A true hit in the field of small press comics!

"Featuring Wolf &Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre," The stunning amazonian Byrd and her round, wry, and nebbish partner Byrd are back, taking the legal cases that no-one else wants. Whether it's civil suits from the neighbors over an accidentally zombified pooch, zoning issues with a were-house, or civil rights for fungus people, readers can count on bad puns, loads of clever cultural references and fun poked at the expense of lawyers (always a popular gag) . The artwork has an indie comic vibe (without the ugliness that's usually associated with Crumb wannabes) and the author uses the black-and-white medium to good effect, creating a combination of Hitchcock + cartoon that perfectly captures the sensibility of the series. High school readers who enjoy horror with tongue-in-cheek humor will get a big kick of Lash's unlikely duo.
