Welcome friends to Back Issue Bloodbath, a comics-centric podcast presented by Geek Hard. Join hosts Andrew Young and Sammy Younan as they get down and dirty in the four-colour world of comic books, focusing on classic stories, new issues, comic creators and hot button topics.
This week on Bloodbath, we bring you another Creator Spotlight. For this one, we’re talking about a comic writer who’s also been an editor, journalist, teacher and filmmaker: Ann Nocenti! Probably best known for her work in the pages of Daredevil, Ann has had a career in comics spanning almost forty years!
Join Andrew and Sammy as they take a look through the many books Ann Nocenti has written. It’s a journey from her early days at Marvel to her current work at Dark Horse. We cover her work on Spider-Woman, Longshot, and Daredevil, as well as her New 52 return on Green Arrow and MORE! We go especially in depth on a pair of Daredevil issues that Andrew still holds up as two of his favourites! One takes place at Christmas and features a daredevil of a different kind. The other focuses on a down on his luck, blue collar worker who takes the law into his own hands. Neither are a conventional DD story and that Ann’s specialty.
We even check out her latest work on both the creator-owned story The Seeds (for Berger Books) and a Captain America story she wrote for the first issue of the new Marvel Comics Presents. It’s all coming you way on the latest episode of Back Issue Bloodbath!
