Comic Books and Legal History and Bentham’s auto icon

Lovers of Americana will find it interesting to look at the Yale Library Rare Books Blog which features some of the material from the Exhibition "Superheroes in Court! Lawyers, Law and Comic Books". See

Without seeing the Exhibit, I do not know if it features one of this Blog's favourite legal-historical comic books, an edition of Ripley's Believe it or Not which had Jeremy Bentham's (admittedly rather creepy) Auto-icon running wild in University College, getting up to all kinds of unpleasant mischief. Alas, it is apparently a myth that he is regularly wheeled into meetings in University College and noted as "present but not voting".
