Thoughts on Ann Nocenti Taking Over Green Arrow

by  in Comic News Comment

Wow, I don’t think ANYONE could have predicted THAT!

Ann Nocenti is returning to monthly comics for the first time since the mid 1990s to take over Green Arrow from the interim writing team of Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgens (who presumably chose to stick with Superman when that position opened up).

Click the above link to read a really charming interview with Nocenti. I love the approach she is taking to it all. She is really and truly fresh to the character and it is fascinating to see her sort of work through ideas as she speaks to the interviewer. She plans on taking Ollie out on the road, and I imagine fans of her Daredevil run fondly remember the storyline where she took Daredevil out on the road.

And, obviously, it is interesting to see another female writer get hired to do an ongoing for DC. I wonder who will draw the book?
