Today is Nicola Scott’s birthday and she is one of my absolute favorite comic book artists and thanks to another awesome lady Gail Simone’s post I was inspired to do my own post on my favorite art from Nicola. It’s actually very fitting because Gail Simone and Nicola Scott work so well together in my mind, and the minds of others I’m sure.
My first encounter with her art was in Gail’s Birds of Prey, of course. I loved the way she draws women of all sizes. Her Big Barda is probably my favorite.
Next up is Secret Six because let’s face it, when I think of the Six, Nicola’s art is the first thing that comes to mind.
My absolute favorite page of her art in all of her Secret Six run has to be this following page combining two of my great loves: Wonder Woman and Secret Six. Every panel blew me away.
Speaking of Wonder Woman, she draws Diana so beautifully. Her work, once again with Gail, on Wonder Woman was amazing as usual and here is one of my favorite representations of the Amazon princess by Nicola.
Last but not least, I really enjoyed Nicola’s run on Teen Titans. Her Ravages is probably my favorite. The way she can convey movement and action through her panels are pretty impressive.
Her Teen Titans are probably the best I’ve seen since, oh I don’t know, George Perez!
And because of that I jumped at the chance of owning some original art by the very talented, always amazing Nicola Scott. Here is the very last page of Teen Titans #100.
Happy Nicola Scott Appreciation Day everyone!
I don’t want to make a post about my comic sister about me, but that silent Secret Six page took me HOURS to write, without a bit of dialogue. It was incredibly complex, and with some other artists, I wouldn’t even have tried, knowing it would be beyond their capabilities.
Nicole, of course, nailed it immediately.
