DC is announcing over on their blog this afternoon that, for the third time in seven issues (as of this writing!) Green Arrow will be getting itself a new author. Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgens were announced as replacements for J. T. Krul less than a month ago, taking over as of issue #4, but it seems their run was not meant to be a long one: the book’s new ongoing writer as of #7 will be fan favorite Ann Nocenti.
For those in need of a history lesson, Nocenti was a Marvel fixture during the eighties before leaving the game roughly a decade ago to pursue a career as a journalist and filmmaker. In comics circles, she’s probably best remembered for a revered, classic run on Daredevil with (among others) John Romita Jr. after Frank Miller left the book. Anyone who can follow Frank Miller’s run on Daredevil with a run that’s remembered as classic in its own right will probably do okay by Oliver Queen.
