Official Press Release
As a result, 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 collection contains strips that originally appeared in The National Law Journal and The Brooklyn Paper in the mid-1980s and that predate those reprinted in the later Supernatural Law and Fright Court collections published by Exhibit A.
Unearthing this earliest collection has come at an interesting time: Lash is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the appearance of the first Wolff & Byrd strip, published in The Brooklyn Paper in September of 1979. The weekly strips followed a continuity format, with most storylines running for six weeks or longer.
In the strips in this book, 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, many fans will be interested to learn that this book features the introduction of Mavis (Wolff & Byrd’s self-proclaimed “World’s Greatest Secretary”) and a flashback to young Alanna and Jeff in law school.
Exhibit A is selling the book for just $7.00-the original cover price (plus shipping and handling). Batton offers one caveat: The strips are printed smaller than their original versions, so some readers may need to get out their magnifying glasses!
