- America’s most well-known, hardboiled detective, Mike Hammer, returns with Hermes Press’ complete archival reprint of the entire continuity,
From the Files of... Mike Hammer! Reprinting all of the dailies and
Sunday strips (in digitally reconstructed color) this book will be the final word on this pop culture icon. The strip, which was distributed to newspapers by the Phoenix Features Syndicate, ran for only one year (1953-1954) — but what a year it was! The strip is pure Mickey Spillane and was crafted under his watchful eye with art by Ed Robbins. The feature has everything fans of Mike
Hammer would expect: Mike, Zelda, good girls, bad girls, gun-play, and lots of action!
- Accompanying the strips are two in-depth essays by noted mystery writer and
Mickey Spillane expert Max Collins (Road to Perdition).
