My Scrapbook: The Last Three Dick Hammers

My Scrapbook
The Last Three Dick Hammers
Written and drawn by Chris Wisnia

 Hot-tempered, foul-mouthed, crotch-scratching DICK HAMMER is a private skulk working the web comic mean streets of Crude Bay, Southern California, written and drawn by Chris Wisnia. He first popped up in 2004 in Dick Hammer: Conservative Republican Private Investigator, a regular back-up feature in Tabloia Weekly Magazine (which only ran from issues #572-576), Wisnias personal anthology of pulpy goodness.

Dick returned a few years later, in 2007, as a web comic, featured on Chris Wisnia’s Tabloia , as well as on Webcomics Nation and, ahem, The Thrilling Detective Web Site, and we were glad to have him.

It ran sporadically both here and elsewhere for about a year before it was “web-cancelled” in November 2008, leaving readers to wonder how things wrapped up. Wisnia vowed he would eventually wrap things up, but so far, there’s been radio silence.

Still, if Hammer ever does make a comeback,  I hope Chris knows he can always crash here. In the meantime, you can dig the last three strips we ran, way back in November 2008.
