About Nicola ScottNicola Scott is an Australian comic book artist working primarily in the American industry.
With a history in theatre and in costume design Nicola started pursuing a comics career in 2001 and by 2004 was the first Australian to become a staple of the U.S. mainstream. 
She quickly became a fan-favourite working exclusively for DC Comics on iconic characters such as Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman and team titles “Birds Of Prey”, “Secret Six”, “Teen Titans” and New York Times Bestseller “Earth 2”.
2016 saw the launch of her critically acclaimed creator-owned Image Comics maxi-series ‘Black Magick’ and DC’s ‘Wonder Woman: Year One’ to celebrate the characters 75th anniversary, both in collaboration with writer Greg Rucka.
Also in 2016 Nicola partnered with DC Comics and The United Nations to create the key art for Wonder Woman’s Honorary Ambassadorship For Women and Girls. In 2022 she worked with Kelly Sue DeConnick on Vol.3 of the Eisner Awarding winning series Wonder Woman HISTORIA.
Currently she’s working with Tom Taylor on TITANS.
She’s appeared in W Magazine, Vogue Australia, Frankie Magazine, The New York Times art section, written for The Guardian, and guest judged on both Australian and U.S. reality shows. She’s given talks at Graphic Festival, ACAF, Araza Women Presents and gave a keynote at the 2018 Adobe Max Creative Conference.
She lives in the Blue Mountains with her husband and their cat.
