Stuff of Interest - May 2006 - Supernatural Law
by Batton Lash
An ousted vampire capitalizes on his notoriety by taking his act to Hollywood, only to encounter conniving agents, a slain starlet, police manhunts, and a gang of L.A.-based vampires. His attorneys, Alanna Wolff and Jeff Byrd, definitely have their work cut out for them with so much at stake! Plus, guest pinups, letters pages, and more!
32pgs, B&W $3.50

I've been a fan of Lash's work for a long while now, although I've missed the last few he did, since he's given up the regular numbering and gone the old Milk&Cheese route of a #1 every issue. I did just catch up with the new colour stories that he's posting over on his website (two complete stories so far, the third just starting), and his stuff does work very well in colour and in the web format he's using. The second story, "The Life Partner of Frankenstein", is a pretty good example of Lash mixing current legal news (gay marriage issues) and classic monster archetypes.
