THE LAW IS A ASS On ComicMix Bob Ingersoll Joins Columnist Roster

Can a super-villain be tried and found not guilty by reason of insanity? How does one legally define sanity when talking about a person who dresses up in ridiculous costumes and spends a fortune on weapons just to steal money?

These and other questions have been asked and answered for decades by Bob Ingersoll,in his weekly column, “The Law Is a Ass.” Starting Friday, February 14, 2014, Ingersoll brings his wit and expertise to ComicMix.

Bob was already a licensed attorney with the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office in Cleveland when he first started to write about how the law works in comic books for The Comics Buyers Guide. He has also written comics, including House of Mystery, The Green Hornet, Moon Knight, Mickey Mouse, and Star Trek, and his prose work includes several short stories and novels.

Why does he do this? As he says in his first ComicMix column, “I think those who write comic book stories should research how the law works, so that they can portray it as accurately as possible in their stories. And that’s why I write my column, the raison d'ĂȘtre of my column.”

ComicMix publishes a line of graphic novels by some of the best new and established talent in the industry. In addition, it runs one of the Internet’s most popular pop culture news sites.


  1. This is great news! I loved Bob's old columns and look forward to seeing what he has to say about the latest legal issues in current titles.

    By the way, is the Flash still on trial?

  2. On trial? Oh no! What's Wally West accused of doing?

  3. Wally West? Have you read the DCPu52?

    THERE IS NO WALLY WEST. (And we'll kill anyone who says there is! :)
