Philadelphia City Paper editor and crime novelist Duane Swierczynski has teamed up with artist Jefte Paolo for "Moon Knight Annual" #1, which is set for release by Marvel this November. He tells Comic Book Resources that the book originated with fellow crime writer Ed Brubaker asking him if he ever wanted to get into writing comics. "That was like asking Lindsay Lohan, 'Hey would you ever want to get high and go driving?' Of course I wanted to write for comics," he says. "Consider me a silly happy bastard," Swierczynski writes on his blog. "It's not often a 25-year-old dream comes true."
