"Free Comic Book Day" Signings tomorrow
Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day in comic shops around the country, and I’ll be doing signings in two shops here in Manhattan. (Yay!) From 11 to 12, I’ll be at Manhattan Comics on 23rd Street (across the street from the Shake Shack in Madison Square). (Happy store) Then from 12-ish to 2, I’ll be at the new Carmine Street Comics in the West Village (34 Carmine Street). ...
New T-shirt design
I was in a foul mood this morning, so I did a quick silly t-shirt design to snap out of it. I’m much better now. (obligatory cafepress link)
On this latest Miranda thing… →
In which I argue that you’re probably upset about the “public safety exception” to Miranda for the wrong reasons.
jadrie said: I think Sirk was substituting the dialogue for the first page panel where they’re asked if they’ve done it before :D Of course. Yes. я глупый человек.
sirkowski reblogged this from thecriminallawyer and added: You ever done a wire before? - I’ve seen The Wire. Yup, I did tons as a prosecutor, and now I challenge them now plenty on the defense side. (Here’s a link to a lecture I gave on how to defend against wiretap evidence.)
Here's the whole Search Warrant section, at last
As always, you can see the larger versions at lawcomic.net. So here we meet…
The search warrant section, so far
My boys (1st & 3rd grade) designed some t-shirts.
I… I blame their mother.
Seeking a search warrant
(Of course, now the police have to execute the search warrant. Wonder what’s gonna happen…)

Search & Seizure - First part
adelenedawner asked: Is there a feed somewhere just for finished pages? Not that behind-the-scenes stuff isn't neat, but I'm trying to trim down how much stuff I get in my RSS reader. (If you give all your finished pages a particular tag, I can actually get a feed of that tag on your blog and that'll work just fine.)
Anonymous asked: Just a comment -- In your latest post about search and seizure, I find the font for the quote from the constitution a bit too hard to read. I enjoy the stylization, but maybe you could dial it back a bit?
What I did last week instead of drawing pictures
Gave soundbites on gun control. (In case it’s unclear: I’m in favor of safety-based regulation, but most gun-control laws wouldn’t withstand strict scrutiny and so are probably unconstitutional. Tort liability to account for externalities is unexplored but might be viable.) Then I… Spoke to the Charleston School of Law on professionalism. (In which I ask the question...
Meet the Players part 4: "Meet the Judge"
artfulpleadings asked: First of all, it's really nice to see another artist/lawyer (though as a new grad, I'm less experienced than you are in both capacities). How do you reconcile the dual roles of artist and advocate, or how do these spheres of your life interact? Do people view you differently from similarly situated lawyers when they learn you're an artist, or vice versa? Ever run into ethical...
Anonymous asked: I like your international law page. Are you planning an Illustrated Guide to International Law?

jadrie asked: I'm not sure how much you can actually talk about, but what's the best plea bargain deal you've ever been party to?
ataxiwardance asked: Hey there! By some strange twist of fate and internet, I've been following you since you first started posting. EVERY MOMENT HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE JOY. In sincerity, you do really excellent work. Watching you progress as an author and artist has been a pleasure. Hope all is well and keep up the good work!
