His first launch, "Ex-Mutants” was an instant hit and Malibu became a leading independent comic book publisher during the comic book heyday of the late 1980s and early 1990s. He developed several industry game-changing paradigms including the computer color standard utilizing Adobe’s Photoshop software and artist free-agency, when he brokered a deal for several of the top-selling artists to defect from Marvel Comics and form Image Studios with a publishing deal at Malibu – all the while, breaking independent sales records in the industry. One of the new creators who Scott discovered was Lowell Cunningham, the creator of “Men in Black”, whose work was rejected by over 70 different publishers. Scott went on to broker the rights deal with Sony Pictures which led to “Men In Black” becoming the billion dollar franchise it is today. Scott sold Malibu Comics to Marvel Comics in 1994.
