Golden Age Legend Allen Bellman is best known for his work with Timely / Marvel in the 1940s-1950s on titles and characters such as Captain America, The Patriot, The Destroyer, The Human Torch, Jap Buster Johnson, Jet Dixon of the Space Squadron, All Winners Comics, Marvel Mystery Comics, Sub Mariner Comics, Young Allies, Vampire Brats, Suspense and so much more. He created the back-up crime feature Let’s Play Detective and also contributed to pre-Code horror, crime, war and western tales for Atlas. In the 50s Allen also did work for Lev Gleason.
Allen is one of the few remaining pioneers of the comic book industry and to hear him speak about Timely in the 1940s, working with the likes of Stan Lee, Syd Shores, Mike Sekowsky and the rest of the bullpen is a rare treat. Not only does Mr. Bellman love to speak about his work, he continues to draw to this day. He recently created a new Let’s Play Detective strip, and has provided program guide covers for Florida Supercon, and other conventions across the country.
Allen Bellman is the subject of the new book, Timely Confidential: When the Golden Age of Comic Books Was Young, which chronicles Allen’s career!
