Charlie Huston is an American author of crime novels and superhero comic books. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Virginia Louise Smith. According to an interview with Paradigm, he prefers to be classified as a writer of "pulp" as opposed to "noir".[1]


Caught Stealing, along with Six Bad Things and Huston's fourth novel, A Dangerous Man, follow the lovable anti-hero, baseball-mad Henry Thompson, as he works his way through mistaken identity, his past, and a new life for himself.

In 2006, Huston joined the list of print authors who have written American comic books. In April 2006, Marvel Comics launched Huston's reboot of the Marvel character Moon Knight. The work is ongoing; Huston wrote the first 12 monthly issues. His run concluded in December 2007. He also wrote the second Ultimates annual in August 2006.

Huston has also written for the recent Wolverine series, Wolverine: The Best There Is, with artist Juan Jose Ryp.[2]

In January 2013, it was announced that Huston was working on the pilot for FX's adaption of the Brian Bendis/Michael Avon comic book Powers.[3]
