This Day In Arf History: Batton Lash, Court Room Artist

Batton Lash, the talented cartoonist behind the terrific “Supernatural Law” comic book featuring counselors Wolff and Byrd was born today in 1953. Batton, animator Russell Calabrese and some other cartoonists and myself used to meet regularly for drinks in the early 90s in New York City. I was always sorry that we lost touch. I did get to catch up a bit with Batton and his wife Jackie Estrada at Dave Scroggy’s San Diego Comicon party last summer. Weird But True Toon Factoid: Batton and Russell and another artist used to have a studio in the building at 225 Layfayette St. in New York City–the location of the old EC comics office!

  1. Batton Lash Says:

    Thanks for the “Arf” notoriety, Mr. Yoe. Nice to have made it to “Craig’s List”. I appreciate the kind words, but please note I was born 1953 . . . at this point I can’t afford an additional year on my aging shoulders!

    Alas, the watering hole we used to repair to, The Cedar Tavern (on University Ave, and 11th in NYC), is no more. We toast to it’s spirit . . . and spirits! Happy Halloween, all!

  2. DJ David B. Says:

    For the record, I was born in 1955. Not that anybody noticed when it was MY birthday…

  3. Craig Yoe Says:

    Batton and DJ David B–I wuz born in ’51, let’s show me a little respect!

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
