Another Comic Writing Mystery Author

Last year at Bouchercon, The World Mystery Convention I moderated a panel of mystery writers who also write comics. David Morrell, Denise Mina, Gary Phillips and Max Allan Collins.
During the course of the panel the question of who else might do comics and I said that DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI would be perfect.

Moon Knight Annual #1
Pencils by JEFTE PAOLO

Some people come to New York City looking for a knight in shining armor. Or just a warm body who can help you through the lonely hours. Be careful what you look for. Hot crime novelist Duane Swierczynski (“The Blonde”) and Jefte Paolo bring you the story of three women whose lives intersect in strange and deadly ways, two predators who stalk the city streets at night, and one shock ending you won’t see coming. No matter how many bad dates you’ve had.

Duane also has a few other things coming down the line from Marvel as well.
Duane is an incredible writer and I think he is going to be a huge name. Any one who has not read him yet should check out THE BLONDE coming out in paperback. or his first two books SECRET DEAD MEN or WHEELMAN.

Duane talks about it on his very own blog: Secret Dead Blog
