Professional History

Spillane was a professional writer who started his career in the 1940s in comic-books for Charlton Comics and later Timely Comics, both with the script of a comic-book or writing short text stories. After the World War II, in which he served in the Army Air Corps, Spillane wrote a noir novel that was published in 1947: I, the Jury introduced his most famous character, detective Mike Hammer, whom he intended to create for a comic-book. His further novels became a financial success, albeit not particularly respected by critics.
