Crime writers on PUNISHER

As I posted yesterday on my genre blog Giant Monsters On The Loose, the editors at Marvel Comics have called on three crime novelists to each contribute an arc to Marvel's MAX ("mature readers") title Punisher: Gregg Hurwitz (The Crime Writer) has scripted "Girls In White Dresses," which runs in Punisher #60-#65, through December; Duane Swierczynski (Severance Package) follows with "Six Hours To Kill," appearing in Punisher #66-#70, January through May 2009; and Victor Gischler (Shotgun Opera) wraps up with "Welcome To The Bayou" in Punisher #71-#75, which kicks off June 2009.

Editor Axel Alonso promises the three stories to be "fast-paced, ultra-violent, and gritty ... but each story also displays the unique skills of each writer." (Full story at Comic Book Resources.)
