Nick Cardy RIP
I awoke to the sad news that veteran artist Nick Cardy has passed away. Cardy's creamy art graced hundreds of comics over the decades. Cardy, born Nicholas Viscardi, had a distinctive style which had flair and seem to shimmer on the page. His people were beautiful and idealistic renderings but nonetheless had a soft identifiable humanity about them. Cardy was the main cover artist for many of DC's comics when I first discovered the company many many moons ago. His vibrant memorable covers are often what I think of first when I reflect on those times.
Farewell Mr.Cardy and thank you.
Below are some favorite Nick Cardy covers.
