Wolff & Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre — ‘The Red Book’
WAREHOUSE FIND! Back in 1987, Andrion Books (long since out of business) published the first collection of Wolff & Byrd comic strips. Batton ran out of copies of the book before Exhibit A Press began and had lost track of where any copies might be. He’s now been contacted by his former publisher, who ran across some boxes of the book while cleaning out a storage facility. So Exhibit A now has available some copies of what is fondly referred to as “The Red Book.” This 64-page 8 1/2 x 11 book contains strips that appeared in The National Law Journal and The Brooklyn Paper in the mid-1980s and predate those reprinted in the Supernatural Law and Fright Court collections. In these strips Wolff & Byrd defend a vampire dentist, go to L.A. for an est-like experience, encounter a young man possessed by Clarence Darrow, and deal with ghosts, witches, time travelers, werewolves, the undead—and Ronald Coleman? PLUS! The introduction of Mavis, and a flashback to young Alanna and Jeff in law school. All for just $10.00 (plus shipping and handling).
Caution: The strips are printed smaller than their original versions, so get out your glasses!
