The law firm of Wolff & Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre has a unique practice: defending monsters and the supernaturally afflicted! In this full-color original graphic novel, Alanna Wolff and Jeff Byrd take on a case in which a ghost is literally "grandfathered in" to a home inheritance: Grandpa has died but his ghost won't leave the house, much to the chagrin of his son and daughter-in-law. Meanwhile at the law offices, that landlord wants Wolff & Byrd to leave because their clients are disturbing the other tenants. Readers can expect lots of plot twists and turns and surprising revelation. This is the first new Supernatural Law graphic novel in 5 years.
