As a child in New York City, Bellman became enchanted by comics when he saw a copy of Action Comics #1 and purchased it.[2] He first began working for Timely Comics/Atlas Comics in 1942 after seeing an advertisement in the newspaper, with one of his first assignments being on early Captain America stories.[3]

After his work in the comics industry ended, he continued to attend comic book conventions into his 90s; he moved to southern Florida and retired from the comic book industry in the 1960s.[3][2]
