    She was a beautiful blonde and she was in trouble Usually, that s all I need to know When your name is Mike Hammer, certain things are expected of you Tricked into meeting a client in the proverbial lions den of mafia land, Mike Hammer s long overdue return to the graphic novel medium sees the perennial private eye come face to face with death the long one Whilst Hammer has been portrayed in comics and newspaper strips previously, the Titan Comics Hard Case Crime collaboration freshensShe was a beautiful blonde and she was in trouble Usually, that s all I need to know When your name is Mike Hammer, certain things are expected of you Tricked into meeting a client in the proverbial lions den of mafia land, Mike Hammer s long overdue return to the graphic novel medium sees the perennial private eye come face to face with death the long one Whilst Hammer has been portrayed in comics and newspaper strips previously, the Titan Comics Hard Case Crime collaboration freshens up the hard man for the modern day audience and the results are largely positive.In trademark Hammer fashion, the PI falls for a damsel in distress in this case, Helen Venn , while his secretary with extras, Vera, becomes embedded in the story both as a victim and heroine The linear nature of the story makes for an easy and entertaining read The trade paperback collection also features two short stories entitled Trouble Come And Get It, and Killer s Turn which, whilst not featuring Mike Hammer, are a nice addition for long time Spillane readers My rating 4 5 stars Not as hard edged as some of the prose novels yet still captures that tried and true Mike Hammer feel I hope we seeof the perennial PI in this medium

    Mike Hammer in graphic novel form and it s damn good You get a new Hardboiled Hammer story with a femme fatale, sudden bursts of violence, sexy, dark, foreboding In short, everything you d want in a graphic format and doing justice to the characters All four volumes here for a full story from beginning to end.

    A good enough Hammer mystery, but the artwork was so terrible that it was distracting Mike s coat was huge to the point that he looked like a little kid in it, people s limbs were occasionally at weird angles, and it just generally looked like the really bad computer generated art you see on the cover of cheap self published sci fi novels.

    Mike Hammer is not just a tough guy he is THE tough guy Hammer is the prototype the spiritual godfather of every hard boiled sleuth you ve every read about Mickey Spillane Hammer s creator was hated by the critics he laughed all the way to the bank Max Allan Collins, who often collaborated with Spillane, penned The Night I Died to help celebrate Spillane s centennial in 2018 This story is classic Hammer I did not care much for the art Hammer is a little too pretty in my opinion, I always Mike Hammer is not just a tough guy he is THE tough guy Hammer is the prototype the spiritual godfather of every hard boiled sleuth you ve every read about Mickey Spillane Hammer s creator was hated by the critics he laughed all the way to the bank Max Allan Collins, who often collaborated with Spillane, penned The Night I Died to help celebrate Spillane s centennial in 2018 This story is classic Hammer I did not care much for the art Hammer is a little too pretty in my opinion, I always pictured him as being a littlerough and tumble but that is small potatoes Good stuff

    The story line was thin, but Collins does a decent job channeling Spillane and Hammer The artwork didn t get me jazzed forSo probably will not continue with this series.

    I had high hopes for this project After 25 novels and countless short stories, radio dramas, movies, television shows, original audiobooks and even a Sunday morning comic strip, legendary hardboiled detective Mike Hammer finally gets a proper comic book graphic novel treatment Max Allan Collins adapted it from a story outline from Hammer s creator Mickey Spillane.It is unfortunate the results are so subpar Maybe Spillane was wise to let this one lie in a drawer forgotten forever.There is an I had high hopes for this project After 25 novels and countless short stories, radio dramas, movies, television shows, original audiobooks and even a Sunday morning comic strip, legendary hardboiled detective Mike Hammer finally gets a proper comic book graphic novel treatment Max Allan Collins adapted it from a story outline from Hammer s creator Mickey Spillane.It is unfortunate the results are so subpar Maybe Spillane was wise to let this one lie in a drawer forgotten forever.There is an initial effective setup that establishes Hammer shot mobster boss Carmen Rich in the kneecap one year ago during a murder investigation Carmen was not actually responsible for the crime the culprit turned out to be the victim s cheating wife so Carmen carries a massive grudge against the private investigator.A year later, Hammer brazenly wanders into one of Carmen s clubs looking for a client Instead, he finds another beautiful dame being chased by Carmen s thugs Hammer kills them and goes after Carmen for revenge He learns about 10 million of missing mob money Carmen wants it backthan he wants Hammer dead Once again, the lady with the lovely face may not be as innocent as she appears.Max Allan Collins knows how to craft memorable graphic novels, just refer to 2018 s Quarry s War However, this plot is thin and generally lame Carmen keeps turning out to be the mob boss with a soft heart The women may be beautiful, but they lack any defining personality features other than greed and horniness The plot twists are telegraphed from a mile away There was one point in the third issue where Velda gets kidnapped and Hammer rushes to rescue her I thought Spillane and Collins might do something creative and different Velda s keen intellect and detective skills had already been foreshadowed, so I thought she might get loose from her captors and solve the mystery ahead of Hammer That could have been a nice twist for an old school series but no, it was just another run of the mill damsel in distress subplot Perhaps the biggest flaw of this project is the flat, uninspired artwork The covers paintings are great, but they bear little resemblance to the internal drawings by Marcelo Salaza and Marcio Freire Hammer looks too young, like he just turned thirty All the females are drawn identically, with voluptuous legs and balloon sized, silicon enhanced busts In most panels, the characters seem to stare at the reader with frozen dead mannequin eyes There is no sense of fluidity or movement from panel to panel This is Hard Case Crime s poorest graphic novel offering, even worse than Triggerman If you want to read a truly great crime comic one that synthesizes depth of character, complex plotting, and striking art into a unique experience skip this one in favor of John K Snyder III s Eight Million Ways to Die

    It is difficult to believe that Mike Hammer has never had a comic book to call his own Yes, I am aware that there have been collections of the short lived comic strip version of Hammer s exploits published in the 1980s, but that s not the same I m talking about going to the store every month or two and picking up a Mike Hammer comic.Creator Mickey Spillane never lived to see it, but in the year celebrating what would have been his 100th birthday, Titan Comics, Hard Case Crime and longtime Spil It is difficult to believe that Mike Hammer has never had a comic book to call his own Yes, I am aware that there have been collections of the short lived comic strip version of Hammer s exploits published in the 1980s, but that s not the same I m talking about going to the store every month or two and picking up a Mike Hammer comic.Creator Mickey Spillane never lived to see it, but in the year celebrating what would have been his 100th birthday, Titan Comics, Hard Case Crime and longtime Spillane collaborator and successor Max Allan Collins have resolved that error and omission It comes in the form of a four issue limited series titled The Night I Died, an original story written by Collins and wonderfully drawn by artists Marcelo Salaza and Marcio Freire These four issues have now been collected in graphic novel form with a couple of very cool extras that I describe in greater detail below Yes, I am a comic fanboy emeritus The project is a fitting one Spillane started his writing career during the early days of the 1940s in the comics industry, producing scripts for such titles as Captain America, Superman and Sub Mariner among many others , as well as penning several dozen two page text stories included in the comic books to meet second class mail requirements Collins, of course, is no stranger to the sequential art medium, having written the award winning graphic novel THE ROAD TO PERDITION and the comic book series Ms Tree yes, I have a complete run of the series , while taking a turn at the helm of the immortal Dick Tracy comic strip While Collins has authored or co authored other Hammer novels, THE NIGHT I DIED is arguably the tip of the spear where everything comes together, due not only to his major writing chops but also to Salaza and Freire, whose artwork is a tribute to Spillane s written words and the movie and television efforts that were based on them.THE NIGHT I DIED is the perfect way to read what Collins hath wrought, given the complex nature of the work a tale full of twists, turns and double crosses of all manners and forms It contains virtually everything one could reasonably want and expect in a Hammer adventure violence, sex, crime, beautiful women, violence, guns and violence.The story kicks off with a vignette that features Hammer avenging the death of a friend not once, but twice before he is lured to an illegal gambling establishment known as the Zero Club Hammer is supposed to meet a prospective client, who turns out to be a no show What he does encounter, though, is a damsel in distress named Helen Venn, who is the former girlfriend of recently deceased mobster Marty Wellman, who in turn was part owner of the Zero Club Word is that Wellman met his untimely demise because he was skimming the profits of the club out of the Mob s share Carmen Rich, Marty s second in command, supposedly told the Mob about Wellman s light fingers and is now spreading the word that Helen has the funds that Wellman lifted, which are reputed to total upwards of 10 million Helen has a lot of angry people after her, and Hammer is all that stands between her and them.It s not an unusual position for Hammer by any means, nor is the fact that the passionate feelings he is developing for Helen are standing in the way of his erstwhile relationship with Velda Sterling, his investigative partner This is one caper that Hammer will find muchdangerous than those with which he is normally involved As the title indicates, he doesn t walk away unscathed In fact, you ll need to read the book to see if he walks away at all.THE NIGHT I DIED would be worth the price of admission just for collecting the four single issues in one place, but it offers muchIn addition to presenting the main and variant covers of each of these issues, it includes two of those text stories that I mentioned earlier They re not quite what we now call flash fiction, but they re close What is remarkable about them is that they demonstrate that Spillane, even at that very early point in his career, was the consummate professional, bringing his rapidly evolving skill set to everything he did You may not come to THE NIGHT I DIED for the text stories, but you still will want to check them out I strongly recommended the whole package, even for those who don t normally read graphic novels.Reviewed by Joe Hartlaub

    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 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
