Mickey Spillane's From the Files of ... Mike Hammer
The Complete Dailies and Sundays
America’s most well-known hard boiled 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, Velda, 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 Allan Collins (Road to Perdition).
