Who is Brik Jones? The character is the Interstellar appointed Attorney for Earth. The Ashcan story, "The Case of Case number 69" is a "day in the life" type of story told well after the classic comics style origin story.
Early reviews of Brik Jones:
"Here's a quote from BRIK JONES: ATTORNEY FOR EARTH: 'I just had sex with a giant alien jellyfish.' If that doesn't make you want to read this book, I can't imagine what will. This is science fiction like you've never seen, with one hand on a laser pistol, one hand on the intergalactic law review, and tongue planted firmly in cheek. Phil Smith and Sid Kotian have come up with something clever and original, and executed it uncommon flair. This one will have you saying, 'I want my lawyer!' " -- Ron Marz (Witchblade, Artifacts, Samurai: Heaven and Earth, Green Lantern)
"Not only is Smith writing about a lawyer, he's made him...wait for it...the good guy. I told you he had imagination." -- Mark Waid (Daredevil, Luther, The Flash, Kingdom Come)
