    Happy Birthday Ann "Annie" Nocenti!!!

    Ann Nocenti writer/editor

    Ann Nocenti grew up in a household that discouraged comic book reading, though she still managed to get her hands on some Archie and Dick Tracy collected digests, however no superhero titles.
    When she was studying in Suny New Paltz she became enamored with Robert Crumbís work.
    Her first run-in with superhero comics was answering an ad in the Village Voice and being hired by Dennis OíNeil to write for Marvel.
    Her first work was in Bizzare Adventures #32 in 1982.

    Nocenti was then given the already failing Spider-Woman title and wrote the last four issues, killing off Jessica Drew in the process, and even posed in a Tigra costume for the painted photo cover of issue 50.

    She always regretted killing off the character and was soon involved in her resurrection, getting consulting credits in Avengers 240 and 241.
    She continued writing, but did double duty as Carl Pottís assistant editor on titles like The Hulk, The Defenders, Doctor Strange and The Thing.

    She created Longshot with Arthur Adams with the character Ricochet Rita being drawn to resemble her by Adams, and wrote the 8 issue Fallen Angels mini-series which expanded the New Mutants universe.


    Then, after doing a fill-in issue of Daredevil with Barry Windsor Smith, Nocenti began a 4-year, 51-issue run on Daredevil.

    Her run was noted for its realism and grittiness, dealing with real world problems like domestic abuse, child abuse, mental illness, nuclear war, and womenís rights all within the backdrop of superhero adventures.

    Noted artist John Romita, Jr. joined Nocenti for 30 issues of Daredevil, famously co-creating Typhoid Mary and Blackheart, Mephistoís demon son.
    She briefly moved over to DCís Vertigo line to write a 16-issue Kid Eternity Run before returning to Marvel to write a Typhoid mini-series and a mini-series starring Nightmare, the Doctor Strange villain.

    Nocenti then left the field of comics to pursue a career in journalism. She edited High Times Magazine for a year and had her writing published in numerous publications.
    She returned to comics after DCís New 52 re-launch, taking over writing chores on Green Arrow from Dan Jurgens, and followed up scribing Catwoman after Judd Winnick left.
    She also launched the Katana series tied into Justice League America and Green Arrow.

    Also since editing is such an important job in Big Two comics, let's not forget her work replacing Louise Simonson as editor on the X-Men books (after Simonson moved over to writing). She edited Uncanny X-Men 183-232 and New Mutants 16-66, which includes a lot of memorable moments including the entire Bill Sienkiewicz run on New Mutants.

    will she return to Daredevil for a one-shot or a mini?

    Whatever happened to the villain Ammo?
