Law and Comics 2018 Special Guest Batton Lash
The Law Library is proud to have Batton Lash as a guest for Law & Comics 2018. Batton is the creator of the humor/horror series Supernatural Law (aka Wolff & Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre). It started as a comic strip in The National Law Journal from 1983 to 1997.
Starting in May 1994, the adventures of Wolff & Byrd were the subject of a comic book series from Exhibit A Press. The series ran for 45 print issues, plus 5 specials focused on their secretary, Mavis. Lash completed a successful Kickstarter campaign this spring to publish an original Supernatural Law graphic novel, Grandfathered In. Additionally, he just completed the online comic series First Gentleman of the Apocalypse.
In 2009, he won the Independent Book Publishers Association’s Benjamin Franklin Award for Graphic Novel with The Soddyssey, and other Tales of Supernatural Law.
