It is a well-known fact on the Hope breakfast show with Sam and Duncan that the geek-streak runs strong – especially for superheroes.

With the 80th Anniversary of Batman just around the corner, the boys had the chance to talk with Nicola Scott about the celebration. Nicola is one of Australia’s top graphic novel illustrators and has worked with DC Comics on a number of projects including Wonder Woman, Super Man, Teen Titans and Justice League. She was the artist chosen to illustrate the front cover of the 1000th issue of Detective Comics this year (pictured above).

Nicola chatted with the boys about how she got into graphic novels, some of her favourite artists, who would win in a fight between Justice League and the Avengers, and the attraction behind comic books. Yup, in the interview Duncan does get a little geeked out at the end.

You can see Nicola’s incredible work on Instagram. You can also meet her live at Oz-Comic Con Starting September 28.
