The devil is in the details. Check out the way Diana's hair flows in panel number two. She must use Wella Balsam (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyDmakwR1Ww). LOL! PERFECT HAIR!

I know Nicole Scott can draw a regal Diana and action etc as in the SS books but it surprised me to see her able to convey the darkness and the tension in BN.

That image of Max's head reattaching itself!!! God!!! It gives me the shivers!!!


Wonderful stuff.

If I could own any page of comic art produced last year, the first page you posted would be it. Amazing. I have been very lucky to acquire several pages of Nicola's art and not only do I treasure them because they are beautiful but because I think she is about to break into the ranks of the top artists and in a few years her work will be too expensive for my poor me.

All hail Nicola! I love her Diana so very much! I hope she's going to become the regular artist with this arc she's getting ready to do with Gail. Does anyone know if her assignment to Wonder Woman is now permanent? I hope it is. I love Lopresti's work, and I hope he'll get more work soon, but Nicola Scott was born to draw Wonder Woman.

I think Nicola's upcoming issue of WONDER WOMAN is a guest artist fill-in. I hear that she's returning to SECRET SIX afterward.

I was going to try purchase the original art of that top panel with the alternate panels of Diana and the SS but ended up just getting it blown up because someone else had already put an offer down.

As weird as it sounds, I like that she doesn't draw all women the same like Khoi Pham's prone to do, his Stature, Moonstone and Ms Marvel look the same. Jeanette has a different nose than Scandal, Knockout's boobs in profile were more not the same shape as Cheshire's... those little things can get lost when Power Girl appears to be the blueprint for some other artists out there.

I wish she could draw everything.

For those who don't drop into the YABS Forum, I thought I'd re-post some information here regarding Nicola's original art for sale (I'm the lucky person who handles the sale of Nicola's original pages :)).

Just to let fans of Nicola’s artwork and of our favourite dysfunctional team (Secret Six) know that I recently received a batch of 22 pages from Nicola including pages from issues 4-7 and 9 plus the cover to issue #8 featuring Deadshot (looking a little worried)! There are plenty of fabulous pages here showcasing Nicola’s delightful artwork and I recommend you stop by and check them out :)

I’ve uploaded scans of the pages to my comicartshop located here - http://www.comicartshop.com/ComicArtShopsByCat.asp?Page=1&GCat=111

I hope I can help you find a Nicola Scott original for your collection! I can be reached at roydster@yahoo.com Best,

Nicola Scott is a HUGE talent. Her style combines the best aspects of Curt Swan, George Perez, and early Jim Lee but is completely her own! She deserves to stand shoulder to shoulder (and in some cases surpasses with other "hot" artists of the moment like Ethan van Sciver, Phil Jimenez and Ryan Sook.
If she's not a DC Exclusive, she SHOULD be!

Nicola is the kind of artist that needs a talented inker to bring out most of the nuances she puts down in pencil you can see this in the comparison on the preview of BL wonder woman 3. the difference is noticble. most excellent artists do need to be complimented by inkers and colorists of the same caliber.

Mine too, Wonderman Rk! In fact, I like it SOOOO much, I'm recreating it as a poster for my friend's apartment. He just got a loft and wants a large Wonder Woman to hang up. I'm not anywhere CLOSE to Nicola, but the image is SO wonderful and spoke to me and I knew I had to enlarge it!

While the inkers will be getting back their inked work (the inks were applied to blue-line copies of Nicola's pencils), almost all of the pencil pages will be returned to Nicola I will be offering whatever is available (many pages are already on hold) at my CAF gallery :)

Oh yeah, in a few days time, I will be uploading scans of pages from Secret Six #12-14 (the art returns to Nicola have been a little slow but they're finally here). Best,

Hey Bobby,

That is a very cool page, no question :) However, that page may have been kept by Nicola or more likely went to Doug Hazlewood because it wasn't amongst the pages which Nicola sent to me.

As a general rule, with books where the inks are applied over the original pencils (and not a blue-line copy), 2/3rds of the pages from every book are returned to the penciller and 1/3 to the inker. In this case, I believe that page went to Doug. You can reach him via his CAF gallery - http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryRoom.asp?Order=Date&Page=1&GSub=87397
