Lawyer and Crimal Humor


The LawDog Files

The LawDog Files Lowest new price: $14.99
Lowest used price: $19.01
List price: $14.99
Author: D. Lawdog

LawDog had the honor of representing law and order in the Texas town of Bugscuffle as a Sheriff's Deputy, where he became notorious for, among other things, the famous Case of the Pink Gorilla Suit. In THE LAWDOG FILES, he chronicles his official encounters with everything from naked bikers, combative eco-warriors, suicidal drunks, respectful methheads, prison tattoo artists, and creepy children to six-foot chickens and lethal chihuahuas.

THE LAWDOG FILES range from the bittersweet to the explosively hilarious, as LawDog relates his unforgettable experiences in a laconic, self-deprecating manner that is funny in its own right. The book is more than mere entertainment, it is an education in two English dialects, Police and Texas Country. And underlying the humor is an unmistakable sympathy for society's less fortunate - and in most cases, significantly less intelligent - whose encounters with the law are an all-too-frequent affair.

THE DEXTER PHENOMENON—IN PRINT, ON THE SCREEN, AND IN THE HEARTS OF MILLIONS OF FANS—CONTINUES WITH A DEADLY DUEL . . .
 
Dexter is displeased. Like any self-respecting, totally decent, soundly homicidal guy, Dexter Morgan takes great pride in his work and is careful to remain anonymous. So he is, naturally, upset to discover that someone has identified him and—worst of all—is now turning his own methods against him. The situation soon becomes more complicated when a brutal cop-killer begins targeting Miami’s police detectives—leaving behind bodies that are battered beyond recognition—and stoking the department’s worst fears. As his colleagues grow more paranoid of the psychotic killer in their midst, Dexter’s position is increasingly perilous. He is running out of time to track down this copycat and deliver his usual special justice, before his dark hobby is revealed to the world.

Rip Kirby, Vol. 10: 1970-1973 Lowest new price: $32.12
Lowest used price: $31.23
List price: $49.99
Author: Fred Dickenson

The longest-running modern adventure strip celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary in 1971. As Bruce Canwell notes in his introduction to this volume, John Prentice and Fred Dickenson continually varied the contents of their stories, mixing and matching themes, as well as locales. In these thirteen stories, they were willing to tap into popular topics of the day (1971’s “The Girl with Something Extra” uses extra-sensory perception as a key plot driver), but carefully contrasted those efforts with stories emphasizing family relationships in ways both positive (“The Midas Affair”) and negative (“Murder by Misanthrope”). The science fictional Doctor Data and his super-computer were counterbalanced by more light-hearted capers, such as “The Parrot Who Sang Like a Canary.” Included are more than 800 sequential comics from April 27, 1970 to January 20, 1973 reproduced from the original King Features Syndicate proofs.

Author: Chester Gould
Brand: IDW

Dick Tracy leaps into the Space Age when Diet Smith’s experimental Space Coupe brings back a visitor from outer space! Meet…Moon Maid, the most outrageous character in the strip’s entire history. Prior to venturing where no detective has gone before, Tracy deals with some very earthbound—and gruesomely entertaining—adventures, including the use of napalm (!) to flush out a gang of crooks from their hideout. In these strips from August 27, 1962 through April 12, 1964 Tracy mixes it up with the criminal 52 Gang—each named for a card in the poker deck—who have found a novel way to dispose of the corpses of their enemies, Junior is smitten by a girl who literally wants him dead, Sparkle Plenty falls into the hands of crazed modern artists and their ape accomplice, and (six months before it happened in the "real world") a doctor has perfected heart transplant surgery—but in this case it’s on unwilling victims!

The Innocents (A Quinn Colson Novel)

The Innocents (A Quinn Colson Novel) Lowest new price: $10.54
Lowest used price: $2.41
List price: $16.00
Author: Ace Atkins

From New York Times-bestselling Southern crime master Ace Atkins comes a gritty, darkly comic tale of greed, violence, and unexpected redemption.
 
Quinn Colson didn’t owe his home town of Jericho, Mississippi, a damn thing. After serving for more than a decade as a U.S. Army Ranger, he’d returned, been elected sheriff, and tried to make the town and surrounding Tibbehah county a better place. He was rewarded with being voted out of office, and went back to the war zone he’d left.
     Now, back in Jericho, trying to fix things with his still-married high school girlfriend and retired Hollywood stuntman father, he’s drawn to becoming a lawman again. This time, he accepts a badge from acting Sheriff Lillie Virgil, a foul-mouthed law woman with shades of Calamity Jane. But what they must confront together is something brand-new.
     When a former high school cheerleader is found walking a back road completely engulfed in flames, the entire state focuses on the rural county, wanting answers. The light soon shines on several people: the girl’s father, a worthless drunk named Wash Jones; a pair of teenage thugs with grand ambitions to control north Mississippi; and a red-headed truck stop madam named Fannie Hathcock, who has her own problems – the Syndicate from down on the Gulf Coast has big plans for her neck of the woods.
As Quinn and Lillie uncover old secrets and new lies, the entire town turns against them, and they learn the most dangerous enemies may be the ones you trust most.
     Ace Atkins  “sets a new standard for Southern crime fiction,” writes The New York Times Book Review– and, with The Innocents, he sets it again.

Red Barry: Undercover Man Volume 2

Red Barry: Undercover Man Volume 2 Lowest new price: $49.99
List price: $49.99
Author: Will Gould

This second and final volume concludes the complete reprinting of this often underrated, important, and hard-hitting undercover detective series from the mid-1930s.

One of the most visually innovative adventure strips of the mid-1930s, Red Barry was King Features' answer to the Tribune Syndicate's popular Dick Tracy by Chester Gould. Red Barry by Will Gould (no relation to Chester) was an auteur's vision that lasted less than four years, but is today considered one of comics history's great unsung masterpieces.

Working undercover for the police, Red insinuates himself into the ranks of organized crime. Only one person, Inspector Scott, is aware of Red's role, which means Barry can't rely on getting help from the cops. His dangerous missions among the criminal element played out with a level of violence that caused no small upset with Gould's publishers.

Volume 2 completes the collection of the series' daily strips and color Sundays.

Author: Tarpe Mills
Brand: Brand: IDW Publishing

Eisner Award-nominee for BEST ARCHIVAL COLLECTION! Reprinting every Miss Fury Sunday page from the beginning in April 1941 through April 1944 (where IDW's companion volume picks up), we learn the origins of Miss Fury and her skin-tight panther costume — complete with its sharp claws on her hands and her feet! By day, she was socialite Marla Drake — by night, the costumed adventuress Miss Fury. These early exploits introduce all of the memorable characters who remained in the strip for the rest of the decade: the one-armed General Bruno, the Baroness Erica Von Kampf (with a swastika branded on her forehead), Albino Jo, and the all-American Gary Hale and Detective Carey, who each vies for Marla's affections. The stories range from downright kinky to all-out action against Nazis, spies, cuthroats, and thieves. Edited by Trina Robbins and designed by Lorraine Turner.
