Heroes on Trial
The Lillian Goldman Law Library at Yale is offering a really interesting exhibit of its rare books collection—comics set in the courtroom. Some of them are simply detective stories, but they also have comics in which you see some of your favorite heroes on trial, Batman, Superman, the Hulk, etc. Should the Hulk be responsible for property damage? Does Superboy, as a minor, require guardianship? It’s reminiscent of the legal troubles of the Incredibles at the beginning of the Pixar movie.
For more information, check out the New York Times article on the Yale exhibit, or the Lillian Goldman Law Library’s Rare Books Blog, which includes cover images of several of their comics. And thanks to the Law Librarian Blog for mentioning this story.
