News hit late Sunday evening that the comic book artist I have long considered my favorite had passed away at age 93. I had seen earlier in the day, or perhaps Saturday, that he was in the hospital, and sent up a prayer for him. By today, Monday, Nick Cardy's passing was widely reported, including by DC Comics [link] where he worked on some of my favorite series in the late 1960s-early 1970s, Aquaman and Teen Titans, and for several years in the early 1970s was the cover artist for virtually every DC title. His delectable "Cardy Women" are legend [link]. He is the comic book artist I will most regret never meeting at a convention and getting a personalized sketch from. My condolences go out to his family, many friends, and innumerable fans.
