Zombie Wife

And Other Tales of Supernatural Law

Batton Lash

Exhibit A Press

Beware the creatures of the night—They have lawyers! Alanna Wolff and Jeff Byrd have an unusual law practice: defending monsters and the supernaturally afflicted! This 160-page fully four-color trade paperback contains seven stories featuring the attorneys and some of their most bizarre clients. The lead story, Zombie Wife (aka: “My Husband Killed Me and Now He Must Pay… Damages!”) focuses on Mary Lou Henderson, who has come back from the dead to sue her husband for “wrongful death” (he thinks he’s gotten away with murder!). Other clients include the Medusa of Greek mythology, a man who releases his inner demon, a Wiccan who is offended by Halloween, and a a fifth-generation vampire who seeks fame in Hollywood.
