Author: Comics MATTER w/Ya Boi Zack
This is completely disingenuous. I read these at the time and whiny right wingers complained constantly at the time. Google “Ann Nocenti” and preachy and see what pops up. Plus, the idea that she “showed both sides” is insane. Nocenti (to her credit) beat the reader over the head with her far left ideology.
You clearly just didn’t get it.
This is classic right wing/conservative ignorance. Takes you morons about 20 years to catch up and appreciate good things.
Good art will always withstand the test of time.
sold on the first page lol
I remember enjoying this run DD 270 onwards when it was originally published. I think the Bimbo was Number 9? Always wondered what happened to her and Ultron.
Macchio was a little shit that used to enjoy putting down Jack Kirby, but both he and Defalco learned under the great Jim Shooter.
I like John Romita Jr, although he goes a bit overboard with his drawing style. One comic book store employee told me he thought the artist made things look too blocky.
Isn’t Daredevil a conservative? I have always assumed that anyone who chose team Captain America during the original Civil War was since they always got the crap kicked out of them and Captain America and Goliath were both murdererd.
Harvey comics used to be big names too. Marvel will be propped up by Disney, used for all it is worth and then scrapped I think. I don’t think comics are dead though. I think there is still an audience for them out there and when some comic company starts up that can deliver a good story without the SJW crap things will change.
the Nocenti + Romita Jr are my favorites Daredevil comics!!!
Ann Nocenti is awful.
Yeah she sure did show how to write “” good politically correct “” stories.. Too bad they are not politically correct or good..
I loved the Nocenti / JRJR run of Daredevil. One of my favourite runs of DD.
Read her NEW MUTANTS SUMMER SPECIAL. wow total anti SJW actually…
What’s gonna happen to your channel when the sjws are finally gone?
Great to see your insight on how agendas can be pushed and used in comics.
I will have to admit I also can agree there should be the counter view on arguments when pushing an agenda. Thus it’s letting people’s views be seen in the comics. Even if there only slightly shown.
the one thing I’ve been saying is there’s nothing wrong with using politics in comics but it’s how it’s handled is it a good story or a McDonald’s add there’s a big difference between the 2 I remember when Stan Lee was asked to do a drug story in spiderman but he didn’t preach that drugs were bad he just showed what could happen and made it part of the story .why can’t marvel just do that
Thank you! Thank you for this gem! And for all the Advice… and that you can SEE!
I remember that story. Mine was in Finnish, of course, and probably 2 years after it came out in the States (things were MUCH slower back then) I was a teen and didn’t have any kind of political views, but I DID recognize being preached at and naturally didn’t like that kind of story. As you said, this had a clear message but didn’t get preachy. I always liked Nocent’s stuff. Sucks if she really has become just another tunnel visioned preacher.
You can imagine that the writer is probably gets pummeled constantly by total jerks on social media these days. Especially if she is female. People are harsh bastards lately. So she might have just reacted like you are one of those without realizing.
Remember around that time Daredevil fought Ultron. Part of the Acts of Vengeance crossover I think.
That was one of my favorite Daredevil runs
This is a great idea for a series!
Nocenti wrote some damn good stories during her DD run. I especially liked the one she did with Johnny Storm in Hell’s Kitchen, where he got more characterization in a few pages than he had since Kirby quit writing the FF.
Dude, I remember going to the city next to my hometown by bus when I was little just to pick up my spider-man comics.
Before you said it, I was also thinking the editors might have had something to do with that comic’s content.
Meat is murder!
Wow, the satche on body armor guy.
Nine is the official name of the Blond
That was a fantastic run for Daredevil.
I personally think that they should introduce the character on Agents Of Shield, she’s pretty much Martha Stewart with Wolverine’s healing factor.
I would fucking FLOOD ANN NOCENTI’S GUTS WITH CUM
Daredevil has been the one title that has had decent quality control since the 70’s (give or take Waid’s era(s) ).
so the karate kid worked on this DD comic issue…………..
Marvel comics was much better before the SQuesada Mafia ! bring back the REAL MARVEL COMICS !
