Bob Ingersoll The Law Is A Ass #383

Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    Mr. Ingersoll,

    Keep up the good work. I have gotten into discussions with people over this. They accuse me of being both naive (big business does this sort of thing all the time) and a nitpicker. (Can’t you just enjoy a story. If you can believe a man can fly, why can’t you buy this.) Invincible ignorance.

    Also, I have given your name to the folks at the Columbo “Just One More Thing” podcast as a legal expert who can comment on the way Columbo takes down the 1 percent. If you are interested in being on a pocast about Columbo, drop them a line at

    As I said, keep up the good work.
