Right up front, I like pulp detective stories, so I have been a fan of Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer for a long time, even the old Stacy Keach TV series.
So when a new comic mini-series comes out I tend to take notice.
This one is just what a fan of the genre and of Hammer, in particular, will want. There are guns, chumps, and guns, with fists and bullets flying as tires squeal on the pavement.
Oh, and let’s not forget the dolls. Hammer is never far from a good looking woman, even if they are bad to the bone and carrying a loaded pistol in their purse.
This first issue hits all the expected notes like a sexy lounge singer taking on a blues song in a smoky gin joint in the big city in an era before the internet and cell phones.
There is only one thing to do with a series like this, recommend it most highly, and wait patiently for issue #2.http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/calvins-commentaries-mickey-spillanes-mike-hammer-1/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Mike-Hammer-logo-600x257.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Mike-Hammer-logo-150x64.pngCalvin's CommentariesReviews
