NYCC 2011: ANN NOCENTI To Take over GREEN ARROW in 2012

Krul Off GREEN ARROW, Keith Giffen On

Look like guess they listened...

After a temporary mini-controversy over the amount of women creators on New 52 titles, DC announced Thursday they've added another.

Industry vet Ann Nocenti will assume the writer duties on Green Arrow beginning with March's issue #7, her first ongoing series at DC.

“I’m thrilled to be taking over Green Arrow. What I adore about the Arrow is his recklessness. He’ll shoot off on an impulse, dispatch someone if they deserve it; his heroism is instinctive. I start with a crazy trilogy that is chock full of surprises. Arrow gets a new woman (and boy, is it complicated), flings himself out of his old life into a new one, and meets a new world class villain. It’s gonna be a wild ride!”

Writer Keith Giffen and Dan Jurgen's run on the title will apparently be a short one, as they were scheduled to take over the series as of December's issue #4. But they pair will team on Superman, also beginning with issue #7, as Newsarama has previously reported.

DC has also announced Marc Benardin will take over writing chores of Static Shock for John Rozum.
