    Short summary describing this person.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    He wrote a one shot for X-Force titled X-Force: Ain't No Dog about Wolverine doing a stand alone mission against the Purifiers in July of 2008. He is currently working on Wolverine: The Best There Is. 



    In 2006 Huston joined the list of print authors who have decided to try writing American comic books. In April 2006, Marvel Comics launched Huston's reboot of the Marvel character Moon Knight. The work is an ongoing series, for which Huston wrote the first 12 monthly issues. His run concluded in December 2007, but he continues to aid in the plotting. He also wrote the second Ultimates annual in August 2006. It was recently announced that Huston will reboot the character Deathlokin a mini-series with artist Lan Medina.

    Huston's first stand-alone novel, The Shotgun Rule, was published in August 2007. According to the author, "The Shotgun Rule is the story of a group of teenage delinquents that break into the wrong house and steal the wrong thing in a California suburb in the ’80s." This book also marks Huston's first book in third person instead of his trademark first person view.

    Also, Huston has had two short stories featuring the same female protagonist published in two anthologies focusing on different aspects of noir. The first was published in Expletive Deleted on November 20, 2007, while the second was published in A Hell of a Woman: An Anthology of Female Noir on December 3, 2007.

    Huston's latest book, The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death was released in early 2009 and introduces a new character, Webster Fillmore Goodhue, that will be further developed in upcoming books.

    As of April 27, 2009, Huston had written two more books planned for release in late 2010.

    Huston will also be the writer for a new Wolverine series, Wolverine: The Best There Is with artist Juan Jose Ryp.
