For decades, one of the most prolific artists in the industry...
...Nick Cardy was one of the unsung heroes of the business.
While never receiving the acclaim of a John Buscema or Gil Kane, Nick Viscardi produced over 1800 covers and stories (from shorts to book-length tales) for almost every major comic company from 1940 to 2008!
Every generation knew him for different things...
In the Golden Age, he was the co-creator of the long-running Senorita Rio.
In the Silver Age his work defined the look of Aquaman and the Teen Titans.
In the Bronze Age he was the primary cover artist for DC Comics, giving everything from superheroes to horror to romance to westerns his distinctive stamp.
We've featured a number of his tales on our blogs...
...and there'll be more to come, since he left such a huge body of work covering every genre.
Thank you, Mr Cardy, and rest in peace.
