We here at Abnormal Use are enjoying our Thanksgiving holiday, and we hope that you, dear readers, are doing the same. Above, in the spirit of the occasion, you’ll find the cover of Scooby-Doo! #114, published not so long ago in 2007. It appears that our heroes, Scooby and Shaggy, are having an eventful Turkey Day, wouldn’t you say?
We’ve been watching “Marvel’s Daredevil” on Netflix. You may recall Daredevil as the comic book superhero who is a lawyer by day and vigilante hero by night. We’ve written about him a few times over the years in light of his connection to the legal profession. The new television show is interesting, but its depiction of BigLaw is a bit off. Apparently, Daredevil, whose real name is Matt Murdock, and his law partner, Foggy Nelson, worked as “interns” at a large New York City firm before starting their own shop. If the timing of the episodes is to be believed, they graduated from law school, worked as “interns,” awaited promotion to become full associates at the big firm, and then quit before becoming associates. Is this how NYC firms operate these days?
In case your counting, it’s now left than a month until the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Congratulations to the new members of the ABA Journal‘s Blawg Hall of Fame. We made that list in 2014.
