One of the more charming aspects of practicing entertainment law is that the entertainment bar generally tends not to take itself too seriously. In that vein, I offer William A. Hilyerd’s “Hi Superman, I’m a Lawyer: A Guide to Attorneys (and Other Legal Professionals) Portrayed in American Comic Books” 15 Widener Law Review 159 (2009). An exhaustively researched (300 footnotes(!)) and entertaining read, Hilyerd’s article provides not just an nice overview of comic book history, but an intriguing analysis of how the portrayal of lawyers in comic books has changed over time.
