W&B PORTRAITBeware the creatures of the night — they have lawyers! Yes, even monsters need lawyers. And the law firm that specializes in this unique clientele consists of Alanna Wolff and Jeff Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre, with the assistance of their secretary, Mavis. Alanna and Jeff have been taking on supernatural cases since 1979, when they first appeared in The Brooklyn Paper. From 1983 to 1997 The National Law Journal ran the weekly strip. Although Wolff and Byrd made occasional appearances in comic books over the years (Mr. Monster, Munden’s Bar Special, Satan’s Six), the partners didn’t get their own comic book until May of 1994. Published by Exhibit A Press, the series was published bimonthly, with all stories are written and drawn by the strip’s creator, Batton Lash. Originally titled Wolff and Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre, the title changed to Supernatural Law with issue 24. The last individual issue was #45. The series subsequently appeared online as a webcomic, hosted at webcomicsnation.com. That site was discontinued in late 2013. The webcomic is set to return at a new location in fall of 2014. Meanwhile, stories that appeared online are available in book form, including The Life-Partner of Frankenstein  The Werewolf of New York and the upcoming Zombie Wife.
