Art Imitating Law, Comic Style

Now if this isn’t a mash-up of two of my interests, I don’t know what is! There is a new Exhibition entitled “Superheros in Court: Lawyers, Law and Comic Books” now showing at the Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale Law School. Leave it to Mark Zaid, a lawyer, comic book collector, and the organizer of the exhibition, to know his heroes from his villains – he regularly represents employees of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency. The images are all covers and depict scenes showing superhero in law-related contexts. You can check out a great showing of Mr. Zaid’s collection here on his web site, Esquire Comics.

Hat tip to ABA Journal and New York times ArtsBeat. Complete lists of items shown are here.
