With nearly a ten year run in BLUE BOLT, Sergeant Spook may well be the most successful unknown comics hero of them all. Basically the ghost of a dead policeman, he continues to fight crime. And yes, this was written (although not originally created) by Mickey Spillane. THAT Mickey Spillane. Spillane worked extensively at Timely, also, often writing the postally mandated text stories that few readers ever bothered with.
