Sobre l'autor

Mickey Spillane was born Frank Morrison Spillane in Brooklyn, New York on March 9, 1918. He briefly attended Fort Hays State College in Kansas, but dropped out, moved back to New York, and began his writing career in the mid-1930s. His first stories were published mostly in comic books and pulp mostra'n més magazines. He created Mike Danger, a private detective, and also wrote for Captain America, Captain Marvel, and The Human Torch. During World War II, he worked as a flying instructor for the U.S. Army Air Force. His first novel, I, the Jury, featured Mike Hammer and was published in 1947. His other novels include Vengeance Is Mine; My Gun Is Quick; The Big Kill; Kiss Me, Deadly; The Long Wait; and The Deep. Between 1952 and 1961 Spillane stopped writing full-length novels after converting to a Jehovah's Witness. In 1962, he brought Hammer back with The Girl Hunters, which was followed by Day of the Guns, The Death Dealers, The Twisted Thing, and Body Lovers. He also wrote two children's books, The Day the Sea Rolled Back, which won a prize from the Junior Literary Guild, and The Ship That Never Was. In 1995, he received the Grand Master award from the Mystery Writers of America. In the mid-1990s, he returned to comic books, by co-creating a futuristic Mike Danger. He died following a long illness on July 17, 2006 at the age of 88. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Coneixement comú



I am really drawn to the Hard Case Crime series, with retro eye-catching graphics and real hard-boiled authors, but, I must say, I have bben consistently disappointed by Spillane's entires. I often find his writing jerky, uneven, and sometimes even child-like, or as in comic book blurbs. I prefer Cain and Block and others, including Collins himself, to Spillane. Another tendency of Spillane which I could do without is how the stories often slide into sci-fi or fantasy, as with the mysterious uranium max in 'The Last Stand'. The novelette or magazine story from his early days, 'A Bullet for Satisfaction' more palatable.… (més)

I have to admit I have not read any Mike Hammer novel before. I chose this one to be a starting point because I expected it to be a quick-and-dirty introduction to the character and considering that Max Allan Collins was the author of the story (and his books about Quarry are truly good - if you have not read anything from the series do yourself a favor and start reading it :))

Unfortunately this did not work as expected... First the story. It was short and with a twist (alas it does require some knowledge of protagonist's biography but lately I have been reading a lot of books from the wrong end in the series so I did not mind :) ) and it gave me an idea about who is Mike Hammer, who are his allies and his stand on the topic of crime fighting (reminds me very much of Frank Castle because of his negotiation skills :)).
But unfortunately art was a true let down for me. All the characters are so blocky and lifeless - they seem to be completely artificial looking. I have read a lot of comics and graphic novels and I prefer some styles over the others but this one did not click with me. I think it is just not matching the story setting - i.e. similar art is in the Altered Carbon comic Download Blues but here all characters are strangers in their own bodies so to speak, so this blockiness made sense. Here that is not the case.

So overall good crime story that for me could benefit from the different art approach. Recommended to fans of noir and crime.

Hammer is made aware that Velda is missing and perhaps being held by Soviet agents. Having been a little drunk for the past seven years, he has to make a deal with the FBI to get a new gun licence and goes off, using his usual mixture of brutality and....well, brutality.

Stacy Keach's gravelly old man voice is what makes these otherwise formulaic stories so compelling. I'm not sure it's fair since he could probably read a phonebook to the same effect.
