Above, you’ll find the cover of Tiger Lawyer #1, published by Challenger Comics not too long ago. Although the concept is pretty self explanatory, we’ll go ahead and ask: What is Tiger Lawyer? Well, according to this site, the series centers around “a Bengal Tiger that happens to be a high-profile criminal defense lawyer.” The series was created and written by Ryan Ferrier (whose work we previously mentioned here back in May of this year). One thing is for certain: the title character appears to be a fierce litigator. (If you want to see some excerpts of Tiger Lawyer in action in the courtroom, click here for some previews from the Challenger Comics website).
Well, you may have heard that the USA Network this week canceled “Fairly Legal,” the series starring Sarah Shahi as a quirky lawyer turned mediator. Alas. We weren’t big fans of the show, but we have written about it on occasion. Back when the show premiered in January of 2011, we reviewed the pilot and premise and also interviewed the show’s creator and show runner, Michael Sardo. (We thought we were pretty cool at the time for scoring the Hollywood interview.). When the show returned for a second season earlier this year, we were on the case again with a new review. Now the show belongs to the ages.
