Nicola Scott is my Australian sister.
I first found her online by accident, she had done an amazing Wonder Woman picture, and she had drawn some small press comics. I wanted her for Birds of Prey badly, and at the same time, I think Greg Rucka was trying to sound her out for a project.
I went to talk to editor Mike Carlin about her at SDCC, and showed him her work, and he hired her that day. It was awesome. But she had never done a monthly book and so there was a little concern, I am told, from DC, about the pressure involved.
Instead, she slayed it. Professional, creative, gifted beyond measure. Working with her on BOP was amazing, and a joy every day. She created Misfit’s look entirely.
Then we worked together on Secret Six, and she created Jeannette and retooled the look of the whole cast. Some of the best butt shots ever.
We got to live our dream and do a couple issues of Wonder Woman together, and that was heaven.
One of the best, smartest, most innovative artists I have ever worked with. She makes every writer look like a genius.
And she’s my dear friend and I love her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MISS!
Okay but what if there were a Team Batgirl book with Oracle calling the shots and Black Bat and Batgirl out in the field (or Nightwing!Steph and Batgirl!Nell yesplease)… that started out as a question but now I just really want that
I’ve spoken about wanting a book like that in the past, actually! Even had conversations with other fans about who should be the theoretical writer/artist for the book. A lot of people tend to go with either Bryan Q. Miller or Gail Simone for writing, but my personal belief tends to be that Cass is a lot harder to get right as a character than Babs or Steph, so I’d rather have a writer who’s proven they can write her well, which neither Miller nor Simone has (and in fact, Miller’s treatment of Cass was pretty dang problematic, though I’m willing to believe there was editorial interference involved.)
My personal choice would be Dylan Horrocks, who had a quite good run on Cass’s Batgirl series and wrote some absolutely fantastic scenes between the three:
The choice of artist is less tricky as I can think of a bunch who’d do a great job… but as we were discussing the other day, Marcus To needs a project worthy of his talents, and he’s definitely shown he can draw all three of them fantastically:
So that would be my dream team for the book. :-) Dylan Horrocks as the writer, Marcus To on art.
