Nick Cardy 1920-2013

The great artist and gentleman Nick Cardy has passed away at the age of 93. His work in the fields of advertising, illustration, and comics was always singular; you could never mistake a drawing by Cardy as being by another artist.

In addition to Cardy's superlative work on superhero comics--his Silver Age Aquaman and Teen Titans are the stuff of legends--he was a master of many other comic book genres, including romance and western titles. Cardy was also one of the earliest and most design oriented artists in comics; take a look at a few of his innovative Aquaman covers (1968-1970) below.

Rest in peace, Mr. Cardy.

  1. DC had many neat titles back in the early 1960's, including Aquaman, Sea Devils, Metal Men, Flash, Justice League, etc.

  2. John , those were indeed great comics! The only one I never read was the Sea Devils (an FF precursor :) ).
